    Is there a way to sync with your facebook account. Like have all your contact numbers from your facebook appear in your contact list?

    I'm sure there's more comprehensive solutions out there, but when you install the official Facebook app, you can long-press on your homescreen, choose folder and then choose "Facebook Phonebook" for a quick link to FB contacts. This does not, to my knowledge, sync said contacts with your official contact list, however.

    it's something that I've been meaning to look into further when I have the time. I think android 2.0 does a lot of this sort of thing natively, but I know I saw some apps to do it out there for us 1.5 users.

    There is an app "SyncMyPix" that syncs up facebook pics to your contact pics; contacts don't get synced though... which seems like a easier task?

    You can install the droid facebook app, and it will load the facebook contacts in your phone book. However, at least for me, did not load the contact pictures in my phone book.
