    I use Google contacts as my only/primary contacts on my HTC Droid Incredible. However, I also linked several of my contacts to their facebook profiles. When I created these links, the profile picture (in the phone) changed to their facebook photo. I knew how to change it back to the photo in Google, and did so for each contact.

    However, every time my facebook friends post anything, the profile picture in my phone changes back to the facebook photo. Is there any way to stop this annoying behavior?

    I too would love to know how to stop this.

    I spent ages adding appropriate pictures to my google contacts only to have the facebook picture overwrite the one I chose.

    I can't find anything remotely close to stop this apart from unlinking facebook, or stopping facebook synch altogether.

    Surely we can choose the photo we want?

    I'm using a HTC Legend

    This has been discussed a few times here. So far, the only solution that seems to work is unlinking the contacts. Since I'm unwilling to do that, I'm stuck until they fix it with an update. Hopefully they will.
