Facebook contact photos not showing

Some users have reported that 8sms doesn't show facebook photos for the contacts in a message thread.

This is a restriction imposed by Facebook (or the Facebook app). Facebook photos are only accessible by system apps.

The stock contacts app and messaging app that came with your phone can retrieve photos from Facebook, but unfortunately, 8sms is not allowed to.

You might be able to work around this by using a non-Facebook app to sync facebook photos onto your phone. Once the photos are in the normal contacts database on your phone, 8sms can access them from there.

Possible apps to try are:

If you have a suggestion for other useful apps for syncing, please let us know so we can add them here.
