I love the feature that the new facebook has of pulling photos to your contacts. Unfortunately one of my contacts had an "inappropriate" profile picture. He changed his photo in facebook but I don't know how to "update" it on my blackberry storm. It says it "periodically" connects but how do I get it to update pictures?

When you link an individual friend with a contact in the contacts application, your friend's profile picture, birthday, and work information is added to the contacts application.
- If the friend already exists in the contacts application, click Yes or Select Contact. Click the contact.
- If the friend does not already exist in the contacts application, click Create new.
To unlink a friend from a contact in the contacts application, press the Menu key. Click Friends. Click a friend. Click Disconnect from BlackBerry contact.

Hi and welcome to the forums!
I can just hear my mother, "An inappropriate photo? Then he's an inappropriate friend."
I can't find a definition of "periodically" but I think this will work.
Make sure the contact info is correct in Facebook. Then delete the contact on the Blackberry.
Click on the Facebook users name, menu key, select Connect to Blackberry Contact, select new contact.

Hi mgrass and welcome to the forum!
Although I can't lay my hands on a KB for reference I think this will work.
Open Facebook, menu key, options, click logout.
Scroll down to the cache option and clear it then exit Facebook.
Start the browser, menu key, options, cache operations, clear all.
At this point there is not communication with the FB server, the application cache
and the browser cache are both empty. I would then do a battery pull.
Once the device restarts fully, open FB and login in them go to the mobile site.
I would logically assume that a synchronization will occur. If I'm right you should be good to go.
If I'm wrong you wasted 20 minutes and I have to go find the KB!
(It should only take you five minutes to do it, but you will probably have to check your
Mafia Wars, and Farmville, that's why I said 20 min)
Let us know how it goes!

Thanks for the welcome! I opted to uninstall and reinstall (which should be a slightly more drastic version of what you suggested). Your way sounds a touch more graceful. I'll report back.

I have to drop off, but I set the thread to notify when you post.
