    As far as I know, this is a known bug and has plagued virtually all D2s since launch. There's an app out there called SyncMyPix which people have had success with; it fubar'd the contacts on my D2, but that's because I have a bunch of contacts linked in a complicated way.

    If you delete the Facebook app and remove your Facebook account on your D2, then re-add both, it will pull down a current list of your Facebook contacts (complete with their current pictures) and integrate it into your D2. Unfortunately, this process also destroys any links between Facebook contacts and phone contacts - not really a big deal if you have a simple contact list, but can be a pain in the sack

    Can I use syncmypix while I have my native facebook account setup or will the account prevent pics from being changed

    Intel is still a bit sketchy, but we're reasonably sure that the D2 will get its Gingerbread update by the end of the summer at the latest.

    Sorry to bump up an ancient thread, but I just noticed that here on the GB leak, Facebook profile pics are in fact syncing correctly to my phone contacts. I haven't been running the GB leak for very long (a week or so) but so far the Facebook sync problem appears to be fixed... at least on my Droid.

    If you're feeling adventurous, I'd highly recommend giving it a try. It's not hard, but takes a few hours to do properly from start to finish. Read through the how-tos on this forum, they are super helpful! GB official will probably drop in the next few weeks though, so if it's not really frustrating... what's a few more weeks on top of the dozens we've waited already? :)
