I change someone's picture and it shows the correct picture in their contact information.

I call them and it show the correct photo.

Then when I lock the screen or when they answer the phone sometimes it reverts to their Facebook photo.

Is there a way to fix this? I am kind of anal about this stuff.

Are you connected to FB in any way on your phone? If so, FB will always override the pic you put there yourself.

Yes, I am signed into Facebook, that's how its getting the photos.

It does let me choose a picture and override the Facebook photo but it doesn't seem to work as intended. The Facebook photos are there by default and I change them. It shows the correct photo when I start the call but changes to the Facebook photo when I lock the screen then goes back to the correct photo when I unlock it.

Its strange. I don't want the Facebook photos I want the full screen photos I have taken.

It seems like when *I* initiate the call the called ID photo will change when I lock the phone to the Facebook photo... When I receive the call it will always stay with the photo I chose.

That may be random luck so I don't know...

I want to fix this. Is this happening to everyone?

Maybe it's a bug then, but I thought FB would override any chosen photo, it did on my Droid.

Nope. I have custom photos for people and they show up on the contact entry instead of the FB one.

I haven't noticed the photos going back and forth as the OP mentioned, but I don't call many people.
