    Whenever I receive a call,on the caller ID,their profile pics always shows up blurry. The small pictures on people app look terrible too.

    Is there any fix for this?
    (to see a clearly facebook profile photos)

    thank you!

    Know what you mean oribe. As far as I know there's no fix.

    Does the picture have a little facebook F in the corner? Go into the contact for someone whose picture you know is poor, (not sure if at this point you need to select edit contact) press the contact picture and you can choose google or facebook. Choose facebook, see if it changes and gets better, If so, you were on google.

    I don't know if this is still going on, I don't wanna revive old threads, but I've found a fix for this issue.

    First off you need to make sure your google calendar or fbcal.com is unchecked :
    -go to phone's menu, select calendar, hit 'menu' button, select 'more', go to 'calendars', uncheck google calendar (it may be displayed as gmail calendar)

    After you have done that, uninstall your facebook for Android (you can install it later) is order to unsync your contacts so there will be no pics assigned.

    Now comes the important part :
    -go to phone's menu, select 'people', slide the screen selector over to 'online directories', select 'facebook', sign in........and you're done. Now you've activated "Facebook for HTC Sense", it's gonna sync by itself, the pictures will be crystal clear (will have the small blue facebook 'f' in the bottom left corner)

    You can now install facebook for android back on your phone, but make sure you don't sync your contacts, or else you'll be back where you started !

    Hope it helps !
