    I just bought a Droid 2 Global. I've been looking all over for a solution to this problem but no one can quite put their figure on it so I'll try asking here.

    All my contact photos are synced with facebook. However, when they change their profile picture it does not change the picture in my contacts.

    After looking around I find that a lot of people have Sync Contacts above Helpful tips in their facebook settings like this.

    I do not have this. This seems like a reasonable start to solving this problem.

    Any ideas?

    I just checked, I do not have it either. I thought if I did something in Social Media app that it might change the screen, but no. I want to see what the answer is to this thread.

    Go to settings accounts&sync, if facebook is not already an account make it one, go to facebook, check either sync all or sync existing contacts, if that does not syn right away. Go back to settings and click on ur facebook account then sync thru that, let me kno if this helps

    Facebook>Home>Settings -- no sync option
    My accounts>Facebook --- no sync option
    Settings>Accounts>Gmail --- there is sync contacts, mail, and calendar
    Social Media> no sync options.

    In the My accounts there are two facebook buttons. One is smaller and checked off but only has the option to remove account and the other icon is bigger however when pressed nothing happens.

    I'd love to hear how to fix this. Same problem here. Facebook shows updated pics (mine included) but not on my social widget. I've tried thesyncmypics app withmarginal success.

    I feel like this a major problem and would very much like it if it was solved. I went into the verizon store and they all looked as me like I was asking them to make the phone float.

    Is there anyone out there tat can help us?
