    I updated to android 2.1 and I have contacts in both google and facebook.
    For some people, I have a photo I like, and it's stored with the google profile, and for others I'm fine using the facebook photo.

    The problem is that the phone keeps overwriting my google contact photo with the facebook one, even though I go into the contact screen for a person, click the link icon in the upper right, then click the photo icon in the upper left. This lets me pick which photo to use. I click done, and the google photo is there. Later on, they get replaced with the facebook photo. When I had version 1.5, this didn't happen. It kept the google photo if that's what I wanted.

    I turned off auto-sync to avoid it, but then my calendar wouldn't be synced. So I would just like to have the photo that I want and not keep getting some random facebook photo that might not even have a person's picture.
