    I just got an iphone and having issues with facebook sync. According to Apple it is suppose to update contact photos based on email and phone but I only get 3 contacts. On my android phone it was able to add a photo to all my contacts. What is going on?

    its very hit or miss on iOS. in fact, i refuse to use it. it would end us syncing wrong pics and profile info to 70% of my contacts and then i had to go in and manually edit them. peoples emails and profile names need to be 100% the same as they are on FB or they will mess up. there are apps specifically made to get contact photos from Facebook and manually assign them to contacts. however, they are not continuously updated unless you manually do it.

    Not interested in doing it manually. The names match and so does the email but nothing happens. When I go to Facebook contacts it has just 6 people some are no even in my contacts.
