    When I tap "Update Contacts" in the Facebook part of my iPhone settings it gives my contacts their Facebook link but isn't updating the profile picture like it says it should.

    Can anyone help?

    For me, it only added photos to contacts that previously did not have photos set.

    Did anyone find a solution to this?

    Since updating my contacts initially when I setup facebook integration, my iphone contacts have kept their old facebook profile photos, and the contact photos have not been updating as my friends have updated their profile photos.

    Even when I click update contacts, it only adds photos to those new contacts I have that did not initially have photos next to their contact information as they weren't contacts of mine at the time I initially set up facebook on my phone.

    The problem comes from the sync. I had to delete all pre-existing photos and then it worked fine in the future. If you downloaded the contact with a photo, it seems to see that as a photo you set, not one sync'd.
