    When i login to the Facebook app and select the option to sync information with existing contacts it adds my facebook contacts into my contacts but doesn't work with my existing contacts whose numbers are saved on the sim.

    For some of them i cant write out their full name like it is on facebook because contacts is stupid and doesnt give you enough letters but with others the name is the same and i want it to sync their profile picture to their existing contact. It seems to be with anyone that doesn't have their phone number written on their facebook.

    With others it adds a separate contact with their facebook details alongside the existing contact with their number that is saved on the sim. when i try and link the two together it only shows other facebook contacts so they cant be linked

    First off welcome to the forums yammez!

    As of Android 4.0 ICS, Facebook Sync is no longer supported. Therefore you cannot sync contacts into your list with facebook, the best way is to use some of the work around apps like Hax sync

    If I choose sync with existing friends, it still adds every person from my facebook into my contacts, which is quite annoying (1800+ friends). I really liked the picture syncing with my iPhone.

    Use "SyncMyPix" from the play store. It's free and does exactly what you're looking for.
