Default Annoying 2.1 (v2, v3) contact photo bug

I've searched for threads/answers about this issue but I haven't found any...and I'm a noob to the forum (and 2.1) so bear with me / don't eat me alive.

I enjoyed the Facebook syncing on 1.5, but I don't really have any interest in bringing over my Facebook contact photos as caller ID pictures (it's annoying when someone posts a picture of a car, for example, as their default picture -- my friend is not a Toyota). I do like seeing status updates in my People app and having access to a unified "updates" panel in People.

I've gone into the "link" settings and changed the photo manually to the Google Contacts photo that I specified, and that works fantastically -- until Facebook for HTC Sense does its hourly sync and overwrites that preference with the contact's default Facebook picture AGAIN.

I've tried syncing, un-syncing, removing the sync option, etc. in the past 2 leaks and this problem remains. Am I missing something or is this just another annoying beta bug that HOPEFULLY will be gone in OTA?

I had this problem with the rooted rom of 2.1 v2 that i installed after I rooted. For the life of me I could not figure out how to use a regular photo instead of the facebook one and stay synced to that facebook contact. When I jumped to the aloysious rom, I was able to change the photo no problem and the contact picture stayed with what I selected and didnt change back to the facebook one. I think this is a bug in the 2.1 leak, but I never noticed anyone else with the problem. Didnt think much about it since I switched to a diff rom. I'm sure someone else will come on here and tell us what we were doing wrong.

Bump with hope.

I also have this problem and it's annoying. I hope there's some simple fix that I'm just not aware of.

Default I concur!

This drives me insane. You should be able to tell "HTC People" app to use your google contact photo instead of the facebook one without turning either sync off. Someone please post if there's a solution.

There is!

In the "People" app, tap the contact that you want to edit.

Tap "menu", then "link".

This should list the Google and Facebook contacts that are linked, with the Google photo next to the Google contact and the Facebook profile photo next to the Facebook contact. At the top is the photo that will display in the People app. Tap it, and it will allow you to select which photo wil be used for the contact in the People app - choose a photo from your albums, take a photo with the camera, or the contact photos for Google and Facebook. Tap the Google contact, which goes back to the link screen; tap the "Done" button, and that should do it.
