    So you go to settings>Facebook>turn on contacts, and the Facebook profile pics don't show in contacts? I've never done that. I use my own pics for contacts. A few I saved from Facebook. Some of my contact's profile photos come from Google Contacts. I don't have your answer, but I'm looking for anything about it. About how many contacts with Facebook do you have? Could you just go to their Timeline and save the profile pic, then add to contact? I'd do that if it were not too many.

    You can't add a profile photo to contacts? What does it do if you try to add a photo from your cam roll?

    Maybe a dumb question - did you check the privacy settings for contacts?

    I assume you have contacts turned on in the FB settings too. I haven't used the feature since long. Don't want FB to store all the phone numbers on their website.

    Ok, so you managed to get it to sync but you only had few sync but not others - there are multiple reasons for the same, say, if you don't have an email address attached to a contact, the FB user is not sharing/locked his/her email address and the the contact actually does not have his/her phone number on FB. There is no link so the app will not be able to sync the contact.

    Firstly, I don't know if you noticed - contacts that synced now have a field name "Facebook" with their FB IDs. This will help merge contacts if you have to.

    Secondly, the easiest way to check the sync is add an email address (being used for FB) for a contact that is not yet synced with FB and it will sync and give you the image.

    It's not fully working for me either. I know there is info in the contacts missing the photo to link to fb, they even have the Facebook profile in their contact info, but still no pic. The contacts that I retrieved from fb however, have the profile pic. Can't figure out what's amiss.

    Any help or insight would be much appreciated. Thanks.

    I just used an app called facedown. It worked great for me. It would have been nice if ios and Facebook would have had this functionality working in the first place though.

    Could always take a screen shot ( hold lock and home at same time ) then add photo to the contact. You can always crop or zoom to get it right.

    Was a solution to this found? My sync only pulls like 40 contacts down. And yes, most of the ones it neglects have information on their profile.

    Does that mean that the native integration remains broken for you?

    Those that don't sync, just save the photos from Facebook to your camera roll, then add them to their contact card.

    Finally figured this out. The OS doesn't sync the photos, the App does! Remove your account, and the app. Add them back. Then, you need to open the app on your phone and wait. The photos will sync in alphabetical order by contact. Very weird... I noticed the app using a lot of data when it was open, and poked around until I could verify.
