    Ok, so you can link your friends facebook to a contact, and have their facebook picture as their contact picture. None of my friends contact picture has changed on my phone, even though a lot of them have changed their profile picture on facebook. Is there a way to refresh this somehow? FB is set to sync every few hours, and I've manually done it and no dice. :rolleyes:

    Try the free app Facebook Sync. It works fine for me.

    Mine is working, even changing the contact picture on the people widget, which it wasn't doing before. Maybe try signing out and signing back in under accounts and sync and see if that helps.

    I have the same problem. I synced Facebook with my phone as soon as I got it on the first release day, and nobody's picture has ever changed. It's annoying.

    I think it syncs automatically after 2.2
