    I been able to sync up my Facebook contact and Gmail contact onto my phone.

    However on my contact, i want to view their facebook picture, not their gmail picture.
    For some of my contacts, both facebook and gmail is linked.

    For those whom have both fb and gmail account linked, my phone automatically shows their gmail pic.

    How do i make facebook pictures default for all my contacts over gmail pic?

    i think you need to join the contacts and make sure you start with the facebook contact click edit then join contacts and that should make the facebook the default

    thats what i did and worked

    I dont see a way to join the contacts, but it seems to work if I just remove the google contact and then add it back in.

    P.S. Even though this works, it would be really nice to have a way to do this without having to do it for every contact individually. Like a setting to make facebook contacts the default under the accounts section.

    I agree if you click the contact then click your settings key the furthest to the left the box pops up and it is on the lower left it says join contact

    In this case, there actually wasn't a Gmail picture, so it wasn't showing a picture at all.

    I found a pretty cool application that syncs Gmail and Facebook, which actually negates the problem completely. It also has the benefit of making my Gmail contacts a centralized source. I found it here:

    Synchronizing Google and Facebook Contacts - xda-developers

    1. Open up Contacts.
    2. Select the contact you want to change the default picture for.
    3. Press menu and then select "Mark as default".
    4. Under the Caller ID section select the picture you want to be the default.
    5. Select Save.

    Now the selected account picture will show up instead of what ever the phone selects.
