    Droid Question

    I recently just got my first droid, and I synced my contacts with my facebook contacts so now on my list everyone on my facebook shows up. My question is, for the most part it worked alright, but for some of my contacts their facebook picture doesn't show up at all, just the gray default picture. This doesnt make since though because when I click on the contact it does link me to their facebook page from their name so I don't know why it doesn't show their facebook picture.

    Hopefully someone else has found a fix to this problem. Not really a big deal, just kind of want to fix it!

    It could be that if they were already in your phonebook the facebook contact was just linked to that contact. If there was no picture in the original contact, it probably wouldn't have added it. You can manually add pictures by editing the contact. The image selection is at the top right next to the name.

    There are some that were in my phone originally. But there are a lot that got on my list just because of facebook, and even a lot of those don't have the pictures.

    Don't know then. All of mine came in fine. I guess it could be because of security settings in facebook that people don't share photos somehow.

    I think this is what it is. I believe you can set it so your profile pic isnt accessible by applications, which may throw off the facebook for android app.

    Re: Droid Question

    Anyone important enough for me to contact is in my google list of contacts. I don't mess around putting in facebook contacts.

    Yeah, all those facebook "friends" just clutter up my contacts. Also, Facebook was one of the first apps I uninstalled after I rooted.

    Re: Droid Question

    I did the same sync on facebook and searched extensively online for a fix, tried uninstalling facebook, reinstalling, taking it off the social network list, etc.... I've found no way to remove them... lots of people frustrated about this on forums.

    Re: Droid Question

    I don't think its a security issue on facebook any more. My little brother is one of the people who's pictures doesn't show up so I had him change all his security settings to one of my friends who's picture does show up. Still no luck!!

    You can sync only your existing contacts instead of bringing in everyone
