    All 1300+ of mine show up just fine. What are you using (phone stock Facebook interface or the one from the market)? What OS do you have (2.1 or 2.2)?

    they show up, but what i am saying is when they change there picture it does'nt change on my phone . Example : My phone contacts change, but if I send them a text the old picture still shows up there

    Do your contacts show "linked"? Mine seem to be updating from what I can tell.

    Remove the links and see if that resolves the issue. It will not happen instantly. I would give it a good 24 hrs to see if it updates.

    You could do that, but if you can just remove the "link" by going to that contact, pressing the setting button, and selecting "unlink contact".

    Then you may have to remove the account from your setup.

    Did you set up Facebook from the "Social Networking" APP on your phone, or under the "My Accounts" link?

    It works much smoother if you leave that alone and download the standalone Facebook APP from the market and set everything up on there.

    Ummm, I think you answered your own question right there...

    Go back to the contacts that are showing "linked to unknown" and re-link them to the corresponding Facebook/Contacts...that should fix the issue you are having.

    Techoman - I owe you a beer. THIS is the answer I've been looking for! Finally!! I removed the FB account from "Social Networking" and jsut use the FB app. Now, all pictures are updated. Thank you.

    Apparently, The "Social Networking" app takes precedence over all photos. Unfortunately, it doesn't update them, of is in conflict with the FB app.

    A little off topic... ??

    On the topic of pictures, without downloading the OFFICIAL facebook app, is there a way to upload pictures to facebook with a caption? I can hit "Quick Upload", which is cool, but there is no chance to enter a caption. I tried clicking "Share" instead, but there isn't even a facebook option available under that menu. To cover any questions, I do have my account set up on my phone and all my facebook contacts synced.
