    basically, im on a family plan, though likely unrelated, but my fiance's number shows up, under my facebook name, and i never set up her number on my facebook (clearly i wouldve put mine instead, granted FB has a foolproof way of doing it to begin with its impossible) and i cant figure out for the life of me how to change it

    to make things even more complicated, the photo that shows up is my OLD photo, and is the ONLY one with the little facebook icon in the bottom corner...

    what i have tried, multiple times:
    1) disabling contact sync - FAILED
    2) log out/delete facebook under accounts and sync - FAILED
    3) hard reset (twice...) - FAILED
    4) unchecked the sync contacts option under FB for Android app itself - FAILED

    its getting annoying, and the best part about it too, is that im the only one out of the 2 of us that have our home phone on our facebook as well....

    yeah... seriously....help?

    so, after several days of trying stuff, i came up with a solution that worked, just in case anyone else has this issue

    I went to the facebook app, and went to Settings>Contacts Sync>Sync All (instead of "sync with existing contacts") then went to to the contacts (People), hit the menu button on the bottom of the phone, hit settings, and checked the "only with phone number" option. somehow this worked, but im not complaining... hope it helps!
