    Is there any way to link my contacts with their facebook profile pictuers? on previous android phones I have had I just pressed a link button but this feature is not available on my new arc s.

    I can sync my contacts with facebook inside xperia but this just adds things like birthday and relationship status from facebook.

    Any ideas?

    It should do this through Facebook inside Xperia? Are you pulling through any pics next to the contacts at all?

    same thing for me , before the final update i was syncing my contacts fine with fb and stuff , now it just birthdays and facebook, but there is no contact pic to make it the contacts primary photo on your phone.

    I had a hell of a job getting the FB pics to work but I got there in the end using the official FB app (NOT FB inside Xperia).
    1. Install the official FB app. If you already have it then delete the data using Settings -> Applications -> Manage Applications -> Facebook ->Clear data.
    2. Start the FB app and login. Select the option to Sync All Contacts.
    3. Open the Contacts app and select Filter -> Facebook -> All Contacts. You FB contacts will appear in the contacts list complete with FB picture.
    4. Use the Join option (tap and hold a contact) to link your existing contacts to the correct FB user.
    5. When done you can use Filter -> Facebook to turn off the FB contacts you don't want to see.
    Works a treat for me. I still use FB inside Xperia but only for the calendar integration.

    You can sync all contact from normal facebook app and you will get contact picture from facebook but you have to edit you contact to change picture. You also sync album, calendar, friend's music and music on facebook inside xperia but please just uncheck contact sync.
