There is an option to sync the friends you have on fb to your contacts but the contacts in your phone have to match exactly how it is in Facebook. This is one thing I miss about my palm pre plus. The syncing with that was elegant, this not so much

go to the facebook app, click friends,then sync from there you turn syncing on and if u want to replace photos. the contacts in your address book have to pretty much be the same as the facebook ones for you tobhave facebook profile pics. good luck

I too wish this was possible but I think it's against facebooks policy to allow user data to be extracted from their site. There is an app called myphone+ that will sync facebook with your iPhone contacts. It costs 2.99 though.

I had this problem and it drove me crazy the past 2 day. I broke down and bought smartsync for $1.99 and it solved all of my issues in a matter of 2 minutes. I strongly suggest this app plus it has a few extras like birthdays and setting the photos for full screen on incoming calls.

Here's how I got contact info of my facebook contacts on my phone:
You need a yahoo account to do this
1. Go to yahoo and sign in with you facebook account. It will ask you to allow permissions and etc...
2. Once you allow all your facebook contacts are imported into your yahoo address book.
3. From there you can now export your yahoo contacts, which now include your facebook contacts to a CSV file.
4. Upload the file to google and voila.
Not the most ideal way but it works.

Well I just purchased Smartsync and that was perfect! It allowed me to update all the info, and the pics are full screen. When there was a conflict or it was unsure because of how I had the name in my contacts it allowed me to choose which fb person I wanted to connect to it. It worked well. Good buy if you are willing to pay the couple dollars for it.
