    My friend's BB Storm shows all of his contacts with their respective Facebook profile pictures. I would like the same for my Moment.

    I was wondering if there was an app for that...I couldn't find one through searching. Any ideas?

    I've used "Wheres My Contacts" for about a month and it has worked fairly well. It links up most every contact and then lets you manually link up contacts if you have the names spelled differently or whatever (like I have some with their married names in my contact list and some have maiden-married etc on face book). It does force close sometimes if you get above contact number 200 when you are linking them manually, but it starts right back up where you left off... and it's a free app, so I can't complain. If you find a better one, let me know.

    Stephen :)

    I used something called sync my pics or something like that on my first Moment, seemed to work alright. Haven't downloaded it yet for my replacement phone... just not a priority for me yet.

    Nope, maybe it's in 2.1, but right now they're straight up lying.

    I used to have sync my pix but it got removed and now I cant find it in the market. Does everyone else still see it? I tried searching with every spelling I can think of including the one above

    It does seem like it's been removed. I used it before the 2.1 upgrade now i can't find it.

    I recently used Facebooksync from the market and worked pretty good.

    my market is supposed to be unlocked via the market fix from sdx. so i should see them, but they arent there. an easier way, not much easier but a little, to get your contacts is to import them to a yahoo or msn, then move them into gmail and search for duplicates. merge the ones there/change the names to match facebook in gmail contacts. then run facebook sync. it only takes a couple of minutes to do all that and it takes almost as long to manually sync one contact using the app. especially if it hangs.
