    Hi,

    I have have had the desire for a few weeks and my wife decided to get one to however the shop only had a Nexus One and I persuaded my wife to get it (because it is the same).

    The one thing which I am struggling to do is get a way to get Facebook profile photos onto a widget that is like the People widget on the desire that pulls the Facebook photos across.

    I can get the facebook photos into the contacts but cannot get them to show on a widget (tried People widget demo).

    Any help before I start to consider dire options would be appreciated.

    Thanks
    Jazz

    The widget is the people widget for favourite contacts ie press their photo to call them

    Also I heard from other forums that the desire rom flash kills the bluetooth, which she uses

    Instead of a widget, use a shortcut to a contact. These use the contact pictures, which you have already sync'd with Facebook.

    Swap phones?

    Take the Nexus back and wait for a Desire...

    Be a nice husband and swap with her ;) lol If you're not into the social networking, which Sense UI seems to do well, try the Nexus One :p

    Or...when the Desire is back in stock, change the N1 for a new Desie.

    Jazz_UK,

    Check out "MyFaces Pro". It should be in the Market.

    create 48x48 sized icons of her friends' pictures; save as png.
    use bettercut to create direct dial shortcuts, and change the icon to friends' picture.
