Facebook photo to contact photo sync?
Is it possible to sync my contacts photo's with their associated Facebook account photo? Out of all of my contacts, only one of them has a photo. Don't think I'm missing anything but for the life of me I can't figure out how to do it.....Any help would be appreciated.

Along these lines, the facebook photo seems to "win" when you link a contact that already has a photo. This would be fine, but the facebook pics are very small w/ low res, so if you try to use the LauncherPro People widget, the pictures look bad/grainy. Any thoughts on bringing in Facebook contacts, but being able to "overwrite" the picture on the linked contact entry?

Found the answer! Use the instructions at the following link, and it will "overlay" the Facebook image for a linked contact.

Selecting individual contacts
I also noticed when it finally synced, it gave me the option to select only certain contacts I wanted to have synced between FB and the the phone. Cant figure out how to get back to that option so I can un-check certain contacts....

I guess I'm also confused. I registered my phone on fb (annoying - didn't have to do this with my dinc or my old iphone). I've tried re-syncing. I've also tried deleting the account and re-adding it, but I still don't get fb pictures to show up on my contacts. Any tips? There are two facebook account options I see when you go to add an account. One is under "integrated contacts account" and one is not. Does it matter which of those you select?

I am having similar problems and have tried the above fixes but am still unable to sync contacts. After uninstalling the FB app I tried to create the integrated contact account I continually get "Login failed. Try Later". This error continues to pop up either before installing the FB app or after. Is there something I am missing along the way?
