    I have both gmail and facebook synced to my phone and have chosen to only sync fbook contacts that are already in my gmail.

    Problem is the picture selection seems to be completely random. Some contact pictures are from gmail, some contact pictures are from fbook and some are from gmail when I first setup the phone and never changed.

    Is there an easy way to help the phone 'decide' which photo to go with? Thanks in advance for any help on the matter...

    Yes, go into the contact, then edit contact, then click on the picture you want it to use. One option will be to use that picture for the contact.

    Awesome! Thanks for the quick reply... So now will the phone 'update' the picture if the person changes their fbook and/or gmail photo? Or do I have do it manually again?

    I'd assume so, but can't say for sure.
