    I was wondering if anyone else was experiencing this problem:
    Facebook links pictures to my contacts, but those pictures will not show up in the messaging app.
    I have tried literally everything to get them to show up, and none of the suggestions I found via google have worked for me. I read that this has been dissabled by android because of some nonsense between them and facebook, but I find that hard to believe, so I was wondering if anyone else was experiencing this problem.

    It can't be an issue with Android & Facebook, my old Thunderbolt would display the Facebook linked pics in the Messaging pics.

    Must be something with Motorola...

    This app might help since I had a similar issue with my OV where not all of my contacts had a picture. The app actually did work for me but who knows if it will work with the MT. Here is the app market link for ya. https://market.android.com/details?i...=search_result

    this is a guide on how to use it I found it handy SyncMyPix pulls Facebook contact photos to Android Android and Me let me know if this works for ya..

    i used to have this problem, it would only sync images from my contacts that that had pictures on google, but not on facebook. i used that syncmypix app for a while, but that app crops the contact pictures and it just looks terrible.

    i however got it to work when i decided to use a new messaging app. GO SMS is what it's called and it has its own profile picture syncing option, and syncs perfectly and the messaging app even works better.

    so i recommend using that. this is not a motorola problem, it's something with virgin mobile's 2.2 android build, because i had the same problem on my intercept.
