2.5 Sync FACEBOOK
 
Okay guys I have been struggling with this for about 8 hours and a few people seem to be experiencing this but nobody has found a fix so I am calling upon the start of a thread to help me. How in the hell do I sync my facebook profiles with my contacts???? I can sync them no problem. My question is why and is there a fix for when they call the caller ID is not their facebook profile pictures. I will be lucky to even get a picture...most of them are still OEM avatar pics...some are old pics I had saved to the contacts Mooooonths ago. So is there a fix for this?? Someone mentioned doing my contact card before putting my contacts in. Anyone know of any more tricks that might get this done???

I have been wondering the same thing myself. I really hope someone had a method of fixing this. I alway log into Facebook before I restore my contacts as well so I don't think that matters.

go to the contacts tab in manila, then go to all contacts, the slide over to the person with a clock near there head symbol... from there is should show a link to facebook icon.. then log into facebook and it should take care of the rest....

Although it only works if the person is stored in your contacts exactly how it appears in facebook....

If not then you have to go into each contacts name and edit info.. towards the bottom of the edit info page will be a link to facebook profile click that and select who it should link to on facebook (the link button will only show up if you have logged in like I stated in the beginning of this post)


***EDIT*** Sorry Im tired and apparently cant read..... Have you installed a different dialer? or dialer skin? when i was experimenting with different dialers skins this would happen to me as well.

It works perfectly in 2.1 dont know why it doesnt work the same in 2.5 I would really like for it to work.

Try this:

HKCU-Software-People-[FBUpdating]=1 not 0

This problem seem to start when a versino of minilla stopped including the 2 checkboxes on what to sync with facebook. The version that included sync contact picture and sync data it worked perfect in. I dont know what version included it either its been a while. But I have fixed it in mine ill see if there was another change i did also.

Usually when i have a fresh flash i input my facebook sync before putting my contacts on th phone then put my contact on the phone then softreset and they sync back up.

I think you guys are missing the point. MightyROM WAR is doing this. You can link up the profiles no problem, the pics show on their contact card just fine. If you hit All People it even shows their status and FB picture. If you add them to your favorite people tab it even updates their photo as the person changes their profile pic. But when they call your phone the dialer does not show the FB picture.

I'm guessing it is the dialer that is being used in these ROMS.

Oooh yes I will definitely give this a try. I love regedits. They are usually the solution to many things. I will try this and see what happens. Mine isnt even updating. I did everything last night and today everything was the same. I even have mine set up to update every 2 hours and it doesnt. I have to manually update it. I will give this regedit a go and hope that it fixes my issues. Thanks given.

Edit: for those who are going to try this regedit there is one missing...its HKCU-SOFTWARE-(HTC)-PEOPLE
it was set to 0 on updating and linking so I just set both to 1. Hopefully that will cure the issue. Seems logical so I will see what happens.

Edit2: Okay so I did the regedit but then after a soft reset it reverts back to 0 so not sure what else to do. I even tried deleting it and then after a softreset I was going to create it again but after the soft reset it always already there set to 0. This is getting frustrating. I guess the only real way to resolve it is to go back to 2.1

This could also very well be the problem. I mentioned it in the War thread as well and someone said they would test it today and see if they can duplicate it. Hopefully and more than likely it will since it seems that Almost everyone has encountered this and nobody really has a solid solution. Thanks given for the suggestion.

I've had this problem ever since they 1st leaked the Leo rom months ago. I still can't find a fix, I guess I've stopped looking as I only use my tp2 to test new roms and new builds.

Yeah whatever it is is definitely in the 2.5 builds. All of them are like this. 2.1 works perfect. It even asks you if you want to save the picture to contacts and it works fine. Even when they call their facebook picture is the caller ID. Its 2.5 that this is an issue. So I guess if I want 2.5 then I will just have to accept this sacrifice. Like I said I reverted back to a 2.1 ROM and then synced all my contacts to facebook....saved my pim with all the new pics....flashed a 2.5 ROM and replaced pim with the one I saved and now all of my contacts have pictures instead of the OEM Avatar pics. I then went into each individual contact and unsynced them from their facebook profiles and then soft reset and then went BACK to the contacts and synced them back all individually again...so time consuming....having to search their name and then confirming the sync all over again so hopefully if they change their picture it will change on my contact list and hopefully when they call it will be their new profile pics but if not then I still have the previous ones I saved to my pim. Oh well. I guess thats the price you pay for a 2.5 ROM.:angry7:
