    I have some contacts that are linked on Google & Facebook. The phone uses their gmail contact photo instead of Facebook's photo.

    I have tried removing the picture, at which point the Facebook photo is then used.

    But then later on i guess it resyncs and switches back to the Google photo.

    Any way to keep the Facebook photo as the default?

    To do that you have to sync up your face book contacts. Then you can long press on the contact and select "link contact".

    Or you can turn off Google contact auto sync. I think the Google contact overrides the Facebook one. Depends on how you link the contact.

    They are linked. My problem is that the phone uses Google's photo instead of Facebook.

    Sorry I really read it and saw that. I edited my first post to reflect that.

    Also, if you open the contact (not edit) there is a section for linked contacts for that person. Select that and you might be able to resolve your issue there.

    I think the only problem is it won't auto update if anyone changes their picture in FB. If I'm not mistaken this is a limit in the contact application. I had the Epic for a week and was able to ovewrite my google contact picture to the FB one but it never updated when people decided to change their FB picture.

    I found a way to do this.

    Go to Contact

    link profiles first


    there will be a tab of the linked profiles (ie facebook, google, skype etc), tap on the profile where you want to get the picture.

    a pop up will appear and you tap on use this picture for for contact
