    Hi all. I need help. I set up my 5s yesterday and set up my gmail acct. It synced all my contacts and calendars to my phone fine. I then went onto the Facebook settings and logged in, wanting to sync my contacts with Facebook in order to have updated contact pictures. After I logged in, I clicked "update all contacts". All my contacts have old pictures, none were updated.

    Can anyone give me a fool proof way to sync my contacts to Facebook in order to have my contact pictures update and continually update ? This is frustrating.

    the only app i use for this is called facedown2. it will require you to manually sync both lists. however im not sure if it auto updates when people change their photos. i dont think it does.

    I'll take a look and see if this will be the answer. Thanks !!! It shouldn't take a third party app to do this, at least according to everything I've read.

    the iOS facebook "sync" screwed up my contacts royally. it would link peoples absolutely wrong facebook pages to my contacts. i had to manually go in and edit out all the info, contact by contact. i will NEVER use that facebook contact sync again.

    after looking for a simple solution, all i wanted was FB pics and thats it, this app i found to be the simplest solution.

    Is this found in the App Store ? I can't find facedown2. I'd be willing to try it if I can find it. Thanks.

    sorry, its called Facedown. but for some weird reason, once installed, it says Facedown2. i think that happened after an update.

    Thanks ! I'll try it. I also read about an app called Sync.me, any experience with that one ? It looks like it may do other things besides photo sync.

    no experience with it, the one i gave you is all i needed it to do. from what i read, FB limits the amount of info that syncs now. so unless there is relevant info in their about section, info wont even sync. all i wanted was pictures anyways, no other info.
