    Good afternoon all,

    I am loving my SGSII its an amazing wonderful phone. Just wondering if anyone else has managed to get their contacts FB images to update on their homescreen. I have a list of about 10 contacts on 1 homescreen with their FB pictures however they NEVER appear to update! When viewing that contact in contacts their Profile Pic has changed but just never ever changes on the homescreen unless I delete the shortcut to the contact then add it again.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thank you

    Sounds like the action of setting the contact shortcut, polls facebook, gets the info, and saves the thumbnail, but only the once. You could try going to applications> management> find touchwiz, clear defaults. Then press home button, if this brings up a menu asking for default, just select touchwiz, if not it might just reload touchwiz. If either if these are true, then that MAY poll facebook again to update the shortcuts.

    Or launcher pro has a facebook widget if you dont mind spending a lil.
