    Hoping one of you guys can help me.. My wife and I both got DroidX's last week and came from Blackberry Tours. I've been lurking for a while and have picked up several tips and I am now loving this phone, but there's one thing that I can't seem to figure out.

    When I go into my contacts list, I only have pictures for the people that are in my googletalk list, that have specified pics (i.e. gone into their own gtalk account and linked a pic). The crazy part is that my wife has pictures for all of her contacts... some of them being the same people that I have, that I don't have pics for. It appears that the phone has populated the pics using Facebook, but I can't seem to get mine to do that... any idea how?

    I did a search and I only came up with someone that suggested the poster, click and save each friend's pic to their device and then link, manually. That seems terribly time consuming and my wife did NOT do that, so there must be another way.

    When you set up your facebook profile under the social networking app it asks if you want to use your facebook pics for contact pics. If you missed this prompt just delete your facebook account and re-add it.
