I suggest you ...

Sync Facebook contacts

I would like to have the option to sync up with facebook to grab profile pictures which is a nice option since most of my contact photos on my phone come from facebook. Thanks!

    How do I get this to work? I've uninstalled and reinstalled the MightyText Phone App, but the facebook contact photos are still not showing up as the profile picture for my contacts in MT, despite showing as the profile picture for the contacts on my phone.

    Does this feature in any way contact my FB contacts? I assume it simply collects their mugshots, which I agree is a very fine feature.

    Thanks for the continued development, and for actually requesting feature input!

    I love this app+application.

    Resetting my anroid phone to synch with facebook and allowed all photos to appear. Try it it works.

    Yea I agree, I would like to be able to sync Mighty Text with Facebook. The only contacts that showup are the ones that I manually entered in my phone.

    i want to support this as well. i appear to have all the settings put in for syncing photos, but none of my contacts with facebook photos will sync. The ones with gmail/google plus photos sync, even one that has a photo from skype synced with mightytext.. but not facebook photos. I think its safe to assume that is where most people get their contact photos from.

    Agreed, currently most of my Android contacts are joined to their relevant facebook contacts, which is where I get most of my pictures from and some contact information too. It would therefore be very useful to sync these contacts with MightyText too, still allowing the ability for contacts to be joined!

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but MightyText already gets it's contact info (and pictures) from your phone's contacts... which already are in sync with your gmail account. There is an item in the Android settings to merge your Facebook friends with phone contacts. They might achieve what you're looking for!

    Sync names/pictures/numbers for facebook contacts to MightyText? or to my gmail contacts? EITHER way would be cool :)
