how to sync facebook contacts on EPIC
Hey guys, this might be a dumb question. I am coming from a Palm Pre, and Im not sure but if epic can do this, but my palm pre can link FB contacts to my google contacts. That way i get their phone number and picture.
I Have a google contacts. I have synced my google contacts and I can see all of them, but i cant manage to get any fb contacts. I have added the fb account, but it says 0 contacts(and I have synced) PS I hope the epic will merge them, as I have already labeled the names in google contact perfectly to match the names in FB contact. I hope you all know what im talking about.
And one more thing, how can i remove a group from my google contacts, so the dont show up in my address book.
Also, is there a good email client? my palm pre email was so simple and easy to use, any like that for the EPIC? The default email on the epic wont even let me zoom in to email....

I removed the FB account and then added via the 'contacts' menu rather then the 'feed and updates' menu I used the first round. It had an additional item, 'friends', that could be sync'd and that brought the pics over as expected. Thanks to all for your help everyone.

Hey... first time Android owner with the Epic! Forgive my noob questions please
Is there any way to get it to sync only the contacts that are on your phone with their respective Facebook counterparts?
How do you get it to display the Facebook picture instead of the Google picture?

I figured out the issue. My question was that I wanted the phone to link my existing contacts with my Facebook contacts, but I didn't want to go through and select which contacts I wanted it to link since there are hundreds. I thought there was a way to tell it to only check on Facebook for the ones that are in my phonebook already but there doesn't appear to be, so I told it to sync all Facebook contacts so that it could then link whichever ones it finds.

One thing I liked on the pre vs. epic, is it synced my FB profile to my own contact. It would show that pic when calling voicemail. Also liked it, because I had my other office number as a separate ring tone and my FB pic would show up so I knew it was important. Totally new to android here. Any ideas?

another thing I am noticing, is the contact photo looks like crap when someone calls in, even with their FB pic. It's small and grainy. On the pre, the picture took up a majority of the screen and looked good. Is there a way to adjust that? Thanks again!
