    Somewhere during the setup process, I told my phone to use Facebook photos for the pictures in my contacts.

    When I tried to insert some of my own photos for people that I knew, it wouldn't accept them if they already had a facebook photo.

    Can you tell me how to disable the use of Facebook photos with contacts? I can't find it anywhere.

    Thanks!

    You have to go into the facebook app. Go to setttings. And select do not sync any contacts.

    If what scubieman is telling you to do doesn't work, go to settings- accounts- remove fb acct. After it removes, go ahead and add it again being sure not to sync with you contacts.

    I also have some pictures from fb for some of my contacts but there are editable on my end. As long as you had them saved to contacts prior, they should be editable if the pictures do pop up

    I would stay away from using Blur for FB. You should download the official FB app.

    Just a follow up... for me, I had to uninstall the Facebook app completely, reboot, then reinstall the FB app. When I set it up, it did not ask me about contact photos but it didn't use them either.

    So I guess it's resolved for me but I wish there was a setting. Like I said, I couldn't find anything related to using facebook for contact photos.

    Side note... When it was using Facebook photos for contact photos, if I replaced the photo with my own, it would still use the Facebook photo if one existed.
