    It always seems to keep the one that was first sync'd. You can remove facebook sync and re-add it and this will get the current picture but it's not ideal.

    You could try going into the Online Directories part of the People app. From there select Facebook to show the friends that are synched to your phone, hit Menu and then refresh... see if that helps?

    I installed this app
    SyncMyPix - Android app on AppBrain

    if you run it, it will update the pictures, also from facebook.
    Although I have high res pictures on, I get a lower quality when People phone me... Not sure if the quality is the same as original though since I never really payed any attention to it

    I had the same problem but reversed, when I used a photo for a contact it would overwrite it with facebook pic after a sync (Very annoying). I realised that if you click on the contact picture in linked contacts view (through people) you have a drop down box to choose the default contact that you want to use for displaying a pic. It is right at the top where the picture and name is, click there and it takes you to an edit screen with drop down arrow next to the picture

    SO, if you have a facebook contact linked to another contact such as "phone" it could be using the "Phone" picture by default...even though that default pic may have come from facebook in the first place....

    Try changing it to the facebook contact...just a thought, and I hope it made sense, not easy to explain !
