    Is there a way to refresh the pictures this phone pulls from gmail or facebook to more recent pictures?

    A bunch of them are outdated, and I wish they would change.

    Also, is there somewhere to choose between Facebook and Gmail thumbnails?

    Damnit, I knew somebody was going to say that...

    Actually I was going to save that for a second bump, quoting myself.

    I believe this is a bug. I just delete and add my Facebook account again. This seems to refresh the Facebook pictures.

    I don't want to do that though... that would delete so much crap.

    I searched, and couldn't find a post with a fix.

    Yeah, as far as I know, there is no fix at the moment.

    You should just bite the bullet and make custom images for each contact and disable facebook/google contact sync. This way you can choose 256x256 images, which won't be pixelated on the current call screen the way the facebook/google pictures are.

    Why can't it just work.

    It's either Android-wide, or Sense-wide. I forget which. So it's not just our Incredibles.

    The easiest way to refresh the photos is to un-sync the facebook by htc restart your phone and then re-sync

    No way, are you serious. 2-3 hours doing what? I've got 417 contacts and only one that I have problems with.

    I figured this out the other day. When you go into the Menu-Settings-Accounts & sync-Facebook for HTC Sense make sure that Sync Contacts is checked. My friend's photos updated as soon as I did that.
