    Did you link each contact to their facebook profile?

    To to that particular contact, and in the top right corner of the screen you'll see a thing that says link or something of that sort. Can't remember what it says before it's linked. Tap on it, and it should be obvious from there. If not, let me know.

    Click on 'Phone' and then click on the little box at the end of a contact. Then press the 'Link' button in the top-right corner of the screen and choose the FB contact (see below)

    If it doesn't say link it's cause the name of the contact is different to the FB name so you'll need to then select them manually

    I think sim card contacts are limited in what they can store.
