My husband just bought me the new droid Incredible 2 htc. I love it except one problem. I added all my contacts and synced facebook to them also. Easy enough....BUT when i go into the messages not everyone's name and picture show up. I hate having to try and remember everyones number so i can figure out who is texting me. Now some of them show up but some dont. I dont understand what i am doing wrong. Please if anyone can give me some help.... =)

Hello and welcome.

How did the contacts get sync'd? Did Verizon do it for you? Do you have a gmail address?

Ok. Best thing to do is to go to http://contacts.google.com and see what contacts you have on there.

I'm pretty sure FB tries to take over when you sync. It uses your common contacts in FB as your phone contacts.

well what i want is when someone texts me i want to see their picture off fb as my contact pic or any picture for that matter. Some of them do it. But a few nothing shows up. I have even tried deleting the contact and just adding a pic from my gallery for a pic and still when they text me nothing but their number shows up.

It sounds like FB has taken over.

I know there's a fix, but I'm not knowledgeable about it. I'll see who I can stir up.

I would suggest logging into the link I gave you and check the contacts. Then go to your sync options in your phone, uncheck sync contacts and recheck.

Mine has always done that also. I think the simple answer is that the Fb app itself is terrible and thats probably where the problem is coming from.
