    Two related questions regarding the Captivate's built-in "Contact" app - both dealing with linked contacts from Gmail and Facebook:

    1) Has anyone found a way to change which picture is displayed for a linked contact? On the HTC Aria, you could choose whether you wanted the picture from Gmail or the one from Facebook.

    2) Has anyone found a way to change the displayed name in Contacts. Again, on the HTC Aria, you could pick whether to display the name from your Gmail contact or the one from the Facebook contact.

    Nevermind about #2 - found the "Mark as Default" option.

    I must say - the Aria made things easy by allowing tap-and-hold for setting default numbers and such!

    Yes. In your contacts page where you have the list of contacts, long press a contact that you want to change. When the menu comes up, press select default, and choose the account that you want to display. If you choose google, it will show the google picture/name and if you pick facebook it will show the facebook picture/name. However, I don't think you can mix and match.
