    How do I make my contact photo stay as the google photo.

    I have several contacts who are linked to facebook contacts and have selected the google image are their main photo. Unfortunately some of the contacts seem to keep changing back to the facebook photo after a short while, whilst others remain OK.

    I have been struggling with this for quite some time, each time I change the selected image back to google but it always changes itself back.

    I had this problem and never found a fix or decent work around. Sorry but I think you're stuck with it.

    Reviving this. Has there been any fix for this? Would love to be able to set a local picture as a contact photo without having FB photo overwrite it every time!

    Mine wont even change. It is like once FB takes over it is Read Only and wont allow any kind of change to the picture no matter what I do (unless I suppose I remove my FB account). Would be nice to change some people's FB picture to something else though. If anyone knows how...?

    Bump

    Wierdly enough it only affects some of my contacts. Bl**dy annoying though as some of my FB contacts have not set up photos so would definitely prefer the google photo to remain as the contact photo.

    Its true, only some affected.

    Theres no fix.

    I dont have the issue anymore as I dont have HTC people anymore.

    You could maybe work around it by removing all google pics, and turning google sync off.
