Re: Syncing FACEBOOK with my Contacts?

I believe that is something that you can do with a more advanced version of TF3D (Sense 2.1 or 2.5.) I assume that your Touch Pro 2 is bone stock.

I am running a custom ROM with Sense 2.5 running on top of that. I am able to syn my contacts with my Facebook friends.

If you have not had any experience going the custom ROM route which I encourage...you should check out the upgrade forum in the Touch Pro section (one of the stickied thread details how to flash your phone to a custom ROM) then you should check out the upgrade forum here in the Touch Pro 2 section and it should get you started.

Re: Syncing FACEBOOK with my Contacts?

If I'm not mistaken the stock Manilla that comes on the Sprint TP2 is 2.1. This should already have the FB intergration included. I believe if you go to contacts - my contact card, at the bottom of the screen there is an option for you to login to FB. Remember that the names in your contacts must match the names your friends use on FB or they won't link automatically. Hope this helps.

Re: Syncing FACEBOOK with my Contacts?

I just recently posted this same question in the software section HERE. Best solution I found is an Outlook program called OutSync which creates contacts from your facebook friends. Then I used BookSync to update their pictures and birthdays. Then I used Manila Birthday to put the birthdays into my calendar. Everything else has to be done manually as far as I know.

booksync works for what you want. the free version is slightly buggy (you can buy the retail version for $.99), but it gets the job done most of the time

Patience grasshopper, yes it takes awhile for the pics to sync. For those that didn't load try this:

Go to the contact, select update subtab. Click on menu and tap update. This works for me every time.

BTW, make sure to click thanks if this helps you. =D>
