    SyncMyPics Question

    I have downloaded SyncMyPics as has been suggested to sync my contact phones with Facebook. It appears to run okay and I have linked all my contacts.

    When it runs it says that it is updating the picture and SyncMyPics shows the correct contact photo, but when I go into Contacts, I still the person's old Photo?

    What could I be doing wrong?

    Problem i had with the app was that i moved all my BB contacts to G-mail, and SyncMyPics doesn't work with G-mail. Hence, didn't synch any of my contacts' photos with their facebook picture.

    NOW... if anyone has an app that will do that, would appreciate know which.

    thanks

    The information from facebook only friends is read-only because you can't edit the information from their profiles nor can you edit their profile picture, which is what it's supposed to be pulling (but doesn't).

    Syncmypix will update the photos of anyone for whom you have a google/phone contact, whether or not they are "linked" to a facebook contact on your phone - it goes by name/number of contact, not facebook page of linked facebook contact.

    There is no 3rd party program that can edit the information/photo of a facebook-only friend.

    I don't know about you, but I never really look at my facebook only friends in my phone, so I don't mind. If you really need someone's photo to update, just create a phone contact for them, link it, and syncmypix will do it's thing.

    I am not asking it to "change" the photo on facebook, but the X should be smart enough to update the Facebook photo on my phone when someone (or even me) updates their photo if Facebook. It get's their status updates, why not their photo updates????

    It USED to do that and my wife's Incredible does it just fine.

    It's a problem on the Dx. it's supposed to do that - and by "change" i meant "update" - only Blur programs can write to facebook contacts because of their r/o status. if someone could find a way to make facebook contacts r/w, Syncmypix would work exactly how Blur is supposed to work - except updating your own picture.
