I've just gotten a Bold 9700 and noticed that even though I have the option to sync the profile pictures of my friends with my contacts profiles on the phone, the pictures for my phone contacts remain blank. The Facebook profiles are linked to my contacts and sometimes will show the Facebook profile picture but after a while the picture reverts to a blank icon again. I've also unselected the option to sync and re-enabled the option to update Blackberry contacts with my Facebook contacts to try and force the pictures to update but no success.
I was thinking that it might also be because of a conflict wiyth other apps trying to update the contact pictures seeing as I originally imported all my contatcs from my Gmail account but I am unable to figure out which other apps, if any, are updating contact pics and thereby turn them off.
Blackberry contacts linked to a LinkedIn profile show their LinkedIn profile pics correctly though and other than that I only have BB Messenger, GTalk, Windows Live Messenger and Facebook that are linked to my Blackberry contacts.
Any ideas on how I can get my contacts' pictures to sync correctly with Facebook?

Make sure you're using the latest version of the OS you can find for the device:
This version is good:

BLACKBERRY BOLD 9700 and FACEBOOK APP WONT SYNC with CONTACTS on PHONE!
I'm trying to sync my facebook contacts to my phone Bold 9700 and its not working. I have a list of 1300 numbers and email addresses on my phone. I installed the facebook app and tried to sync my contacts. I have changed all the settings: Under FACEBOOK OPTIONS
Connect your Facebook Account with:
Facebook has full access to BBM
Ticked: Share my Blackberry PIN with Facebook Profile
Ticked: Blackberry Calendar Application
Ticked: Add Birthdays
Ticked: Birthday Reminders
Ticked: Blackberry Messages Application
Ticked: Blackberry Contact application
Ticked: Send Blackberry contacts’ phone numbers to facebook
Ticked: Send Blackberry contacts’ email address to facebook
Ticked: Update existing photos in your Blackberry contacts
But Facebook will still not sync why?
