    Just upgraded from my Droid to the Incredible. When I receive a call or text - the person's Facebook picture doesn't show.....only the green Droid.

    Is there a setting I need to tweak?

    Not sure but I'm guessing that FB may not be joined with your contacts.

    But in my "People" - all 148 FaceBook contacts are there......pictures and all......with the little blue and white" f " by them. In fact I don't really want them all. :)

    You should be able to unsync all of them

    I could unsync them all - but I don't want to. What I want to do is:

    1. Trim down that list (not kill it)
    2. Simply have pictures show up when there is an incoming call or text.

    I could do both with my MotoDroid. ;)

    Shark I had my gf call me as a test and we both noticed our pictures come up when we call each other because we have our profiles linked with FB. What I am trying to figure out now is how to set a gallery picture for contacts that are not synced to an account.

    I had to add the area code to the contact's phone number. It couldn't find it otherwise.
    As far as using a gallery picture:
    1. Long press on the contact
    2. Choose edit contact
    3. Select photo from gallery.

    Omfg. Right, why didn't I think of that. The long press thing I'm not used to, it's kicking my a$$. x.x XD

    Pft yeah. Not all of us it doesn't. :p

    *Edit: I tried what you said. When I long press it pops up with a box with two options. Call Work and Send contact as vCard.
