FB Contact sync randomly started acting slutty...
The weirdest thing happened to my phone yesterday morning. Prior to yesterday morning, Facebook would add contacts that I did not already have their number, and would add a contact picture for those who's number I already had and had a matching name. However, I woke up yesterday morning and my status bar had an alert saying something about "unable to sync" or something. Can't remember exactly how it was worded. I re-synced my contacts by going into the Facebook app (i was forced to re-login even though it was supposed to auto-login) and in the settings I chose "sync all" and then went into "accounts and sync" in my phone setting and made sure it re-synced. Now, it only adds contacts and contact pics for those who I did not already have the phone number of. It wont add profile pictures for contacts that I already have. Its actually quite frustrating, because a majority of the people that I call/text are already in my phone, and I miss having their pictures :/ .
I've tried every troubleshooting step I can think of. I've restarted the phone, used every sync option possible (that I know of), have re-installed Facebook, have updated my phone and HTC software, and have tried using the app SyncMyPix (which, unless I am using it wrong, doesn't seem to do anything useful)
Another weird problem: I will use an example of my friend Helene. I already have her number and used to get her picture from Facebook. Now, it doesn't show up. When I try to edit her through my contacts, it still remembers the Facebook profile I linked her too (It says call mobile, send mail, Facebook profile... and when I click on the facebook profile link, it opens up her profile) However, in the top right corner where you would click to link a contact, there is a picture of a broken link with the word "Facebook" under it. When I click it and try to re-link it, i search for her name and she doesn't show up, as if she doesn't exist or is already linked. Also, I can't use a picture on my phone for her contact picture. When I look at the picture in Gallery and click Set As>Contact icon, she doesn't show up! What the fuzz is going on?!
Thanks for reading, I know that was a massive wall of text.
