    I have a Droid 2 with my Facebook account linked to it. I also have the Facebook for Android application installed, not sure if that makes a difference or not. When I first linked my Facebook account, all my friends' profile pictures were linked successfully to my Contacts. Since then, some of them have changed their profile pictures, but my Contacts photos aren't updating with them. Any ideas? Is this a known issue?

    I am sure there is a way to do it, probably by resyncing your facebook contacts, but it does not update automatically.

    Tried that (thx), from the facebook app all the pics are updated fine, I have the issue only in my droid contacts as it seems whatever is the original pic when a user was added to my contacts remains there forever.

    Same Issue

    I am having the same issue here with my contact pictures remaining the same facebook picture when the Verizon guy setup my phone. Can anyone help me set it so it re-syncs with facebook pictures? It's weird because their status updates all the time, but there picture does not. I'm guessing it's just limited functionality, but I wanted to ask so I was not in the dark.

    Thanks.

    Some people have had success with an app called SyncMyPix. It messed up a few of my contacts and I had to unlink/relink a bunch of stuff, but if you have a fairly clear-cut set of contacts on Facebook and in your phone it will theoretically work fine. Give it a go, IMO.

    Here is what I did:
    Menu-accounts-facebook-remove account

    Then uninstall it.

    From there go market and get facebook (make sure its the app facebook wrote)- install

    Then menu-accounts-add acount- from here you will notice 2 facebook icons, click the darkest one.

    Then it will say fb will be your picture source for contacts.

    Now just sit and wait as your pictures are being updated (takes a while) but then it syncs as your friends change their pictures.

    i flash a lot of roms on my D1, and the fb pics don't always resync up. i, too, use SyncMyPix to "fill in the gaps". works pretty good...

    When I did it, my contacts where there but without a picture. When I reinstalled, the picutres slowly came back. I have had it like this for a week and it syncs with fb pics as my contacts change it.
