It's a facebook issue, as detailed in the attached thread (from about 4 or 5 from the bottom)

I belive this is an issue with FB sync rather than the phone... my contact pictures are still missing too..

Basically Facebook isn't using the Google Contact API so it won't sync contacts...3rd party OEMs have built in their own ways of doing so, or you can use HaxSync from the Market (very good IMO)

It's to do with the Facebook privacy changes and Google not agreeing to them (or something). See here:

OK, slightly different question regarding Facebook.

 

Just got my S3 in blue.

 

each time o go onto FB it automatically goes to FB mobile. My S2 went to normal FB.

How can I get eh S3 to stop accessing Mobile versions and just go onto the internet properly.

 

its driving me mad.

 

Thanks for any help.

Hi atacam

 

Thanks for your post here. I’ve just got a couple of questions for you.

 

Are you using the application or just going to the website via your browser?

 

Can you go to:

 

Menu

Settings

More Settings

Mobile Networks

Access Point Names

 

Then can you tell me what access point name is set up in there? If it’s ‘wap.vodafone.co.uk’ then can you try changing it to ‘Internet’, then change the username and password to ‘web’.

 

Can you give this a try and let me know how you get on?

 

Thanks

 

Wayne

 

If you have a spare minute could you please take the time to fill out a short feedback form about me?

You can do so here

As has already been answered, the lack of FB contact sync is a decision Facebook took when they and Google were having a spat (you'll have seen yesterday that FB are in bed with Apple now).

There's a number of ways you can get Facebook info in your Android contacts, though, mostly via 3rd-party apps. I think the top result in that search is pretty good IIRC when I tested it out.
