    So I'm sitting here trying to add pictures to all of my contacts. Is there an easier way to do this? Such as Facebook? I've never understood how Facebook syncs with my contacts, and I'm not even sure if our phone is capable of this.

    Also, for the contacts I do have pictures of, how do I make them larger? When that person calls, their picture is tiny and doesn't fill the designated area for the picture.

    Anyone good with this? Thanks!

    Edit: I'm currently using BH_MAN's updated BH2 stock rom.

    Go to Facebook and if its your first time logging in it asks you to sync all contacts do that. It syncs all your contacts and adds the pictures of them, a quick link to their profile, their e-mail, and their mobile number if they have it added.

    If that doesn't work go to Settings>Accounts & Sync>Facebook Sync>Click to turn it off>Turn it back on.

    and walla. The 2nd one is only if the first one didn't work.

    Very cool... thank you. I assume you're referring to accessing Facebook via Facebook in a browser window? Or will it also work in Facebook for Android?

    Also, do I need to make sure that my contacts name in my phone is set up with first and last names for easier syncing?

    I was referring to the Facebook for Android app.
    When you do the Facebook sync it will merge the names of the similar contacts you already have, but for those 1 namers it will create 1 contact with their full name on Facebook and another contact with that 1 name.

    Also a helpful tip you can't edit the facebook account contacts directly but to add a number just do a new contact and type in their facebook display name(the whole thing) and add the number. It should layer over the other one and add the number.

    Do we have the same phone? I have no Settings>Accounts & Sync>Facebook Sync settings no where.

    That's what I was wondering.

    Also, I don't think the Behold2 has the ability to import FB contacts to our phone. I can't figure it out.
