    When I first got the phone (had it for a couple months now) I synced all my facebook contacts to the phone and most of them worked fine, when i would go into messaging I would see everyone's facebook picture when the texted me, and it was nice. Now, when i go into messaging, nobody's picture shows up. not even the ones I've set a default picture for. Anyone know what's up? I tried uninstalling the facebook app and resyncing it but no dice. It just happened this morning.

    Any ideas?

    I've had the same issue for the past few days, I hard it reset the phone twice thinking some apps were not working well together and once the phone reset I didn't load any apps from the market or anything else and still had the same issue. I even had my phone swapped out for a replacement and im having the same issue still... If anyone has seen this and can help us, it would GREATLY appreciated, its dumb and doesnt make anything not work, but its really convenient to have. Thanks!

    This has happened to me before, but someone posted a fix a while ago.
    1. Go to settings > Accounts and sync
    2. Delete all the accounts(Well, you don't have to delete twitter or google, but the facebook ones)
    3. Reset your phone.
    4. Go back into settings > Accounts and sync.
    5. Add the facebook account(Under Integrated, not more).
    6. To test if this worked, sync a contact to facebook(Long pressing their name, click "Link account", find the account and link them) and then compose a new text message with that contact. Their picture should come up.
