Motorola does it. I still have my bionic and it has all of my facebook friends, their pictures, and their phone numbers and email addresses that they have published. There is a sync option called facebook on that phone.

Maybe they worked it out with FB in some fashion, whether that was a call/email/form, or maybe lengthy negotiations or a cost.

How they worked it out, I really don't care. I'm just saying that it's been done, and it's a feature that I used all the time. A good example is when a friend gets a new mobile number, and updates FB. It syncs and if I call them, I would have never known they updated to a new number, but the call would of worked.

I'm just saying that there's a way, and it's been done.
