    I went through the options on the Facebook app, and made sure to check off the "Update existing photos in your BB contacts list with Facebook friend profile photos" in the setup wizard, but no such luck.

    Anything I'm doing wrong?

    i'm not sure if it just checks periodically or what.

    i have noticed that some of my facebook friends pics are attached to thier contact on my phone and some are not.

    that's what i've been hearing but none of my contacts have pictures. is this something that might take a day or two to fully sync?

    I just figured out a way to force it.......

    1. Go into the Facebook App on your phone.
    2. Click on the "Friends" icon at the top
    3. Scroll to a freind that you have in your address book on your phone
    4. Hit the Menu button and scroll to "Refresh Blackberry Contact"

    That should do it !

    I had already tried this method, but it still doesn't work for just one particular contact of mine. It's so weird. Maybe it will fix with time to come. I freakin' love this BB.

    Thanks!! That did the trick...no way to refresh all my contacts at once I'm guessing, eh?

    No biggie...I'm scrolling through now and just refreshing the people I call the most frequently.

    Thanks again! Let me know if you figure out a way to refresh them all at once...

    How does the blackberry know whether or not the FB friend has a phone number..
    Or rather a phone number in your contacts?

    Sorry, I'm new to Blackberry's.

    I have a feeling it has something to do with the person's name and how it's listed. For instance:

    Donald A Trump is my friend on facebook....but he's just a buddy of mine, so in my phone contacts he's just labeled "The Don". When facebook goes to update his info and sync the two, it doesn't "know" that these two are the same person.

    If you go in to Edit your contacts, you'll see there is now a field for "Facebook Name". I can't find a way to edit that field yet, but I imagine if I could put in "Donald A Trump" in there, the next time it syncs, it would do so correctly.

    Seems like you'd need to find the person using the Facebook app, and Update the Blackberry Contact. At that point it prompts you for what Contact to update.

    Please tell me you were kidding when you said your buddies with Donald Trump. Haha.

    If not, very cool.

    EDIT: Donald is such a weird name. I keep saying it over and over again. Doesn't feel/sound right.
    Donald. Donald. Donald. Donald..

    I just saw that you were from NY.
    For some reason, in my mind, that made it much more possible.

    you link the contact to a bb contact..

    but if there is a phone icon by there name that means they put there number on facebook..


    if you highlight a name and hit the bb/menu key then link to bb contact
