    When I set a contact photo from a file on the phone, it ALWAYS reverts back to the Facebook photo. Anyone know why it does that or how to fix it?

    Another day, another bump.

    Let me explain the situation...

    I have my wife in the phone as Wife. I have a picture selected for her contact on that entry. But, when it is linked to Facebook, her Facebook photo ALWAYS shows up when I call her or she calls me or in texts. I have went into the contact and selected the Phone photo on numerous occasions. It works for w short time, and then reverts back to the Facebook picture.

    But, if I delete the Facebook link, then when she calls me it always shows up as her Facebook entry (with her full name, not as Wife). Same with a text message.

    The phone seems to be forcing a Facebook priority. How do I get around this?

    I don't know that there is a work around. If a contact is linked to fb it's going to reflect the fb info and pic. You can create a wife contact that's not linked to fb and preserve your choice of picture for her.. but it will not reflect her fb status etc.
