    Is it possible to use a contact's facebook pic that is NOT their profile pic? I have a couple of friends who have some funny pics on their facebook profiles and I would like to use them instead of the linked profile pic.

    Interesting thought. While I don't use Facebook :eek:, I do use Flickr :) and tried to go to my friends other photos on their Flickr page to see if I could use that photo instead of their profile photo as a contact image...no can do. Only option was to share their photo, not set as.

    You could always do it the cumbersome way of downloading the photo to your phone, set it as a contact photo, then delete the photo. Not sure if you knew it, but once u set a photo as a contact image you don't need to keep the photo on the phone.

    Yeah, I was afraid of that.

    On a related note, why are my contact photos blurry / pixelated? I backed them up on Google from my old phone and linked the DINC to them so I could get them transferred over. Now, all my contact photos are blurry and pixelated. Even the ones linked to Facebook show up that way.

    Not sure, but I do know the photos that I copy from friends' Facebook profile page to my Gmail contacts via URL within Gmail are always blurry. All my other photos that I upload from computer are just fine.

    Google will lower the res of your pics when you back them up so I don't link my pics to google anymore.
