    Does anyone have issues syncing contacts with Facebook? I've got a registered blur account and have downloaded the Facebook app, but in contacts the photos and status changes never update. I have to keep removing the account and putting it back in!

    Edit...it seems blur is about a week behind when syncing with Facebook! How crap it that?! Anyone know how to make it update more often?

    I have much the same issue except I'm not seeing contact pictures update at all (even after a couple of weeks). Have reported this to motorola along with a few other things and they're looking into it but claim they haven't had any other reports of that particular issue (you might want to pester them)...

    I don't believe there is a way to control the rate at which blur syncs anything other than email.

    I've added the blur social network widget to my screen and it updates pretty regularly, but still doesn't sync photos. This afternoon it told me that 3 of my friends have updated their profile photos. It even wasted my money and downloaded the photos, but didn't assign them to the contact.

    Seems blur is utter crap!

    I've gotten rid of the Facebook account and installed syncmypix instead.

    An other issue. When a contact is linked to his Facebook account the address book shows the name of the FB account which are sometimes ridiculous. I cant change the name in my AB. Any solution?

    Hi everyone, I'm new to the droid, but syncing your contacts with facebook won't constantly use data, or need internet right?

    It will auto sync using your data / internet connection. It don't be constant tho.
