First all the photos sync, however at least for HTC phones, every time I sync, my People app will switch the photo selection BACK to Facebook. I don't like using the Facebook photo and would rather use the photo I have on Google.

This is happing to "linked" contacts and has happened on three different versions of HTC's people app. Not sure if some bit is getting cleared in the data that puts the photo index back to 0 or something (guessing, have no clue how it really works).. :)

This seems to happen with contacts that are not even updated.

    to be honest, I don't even know, how there can be multiple pictures in Outlook, I can only add one picture to my Outlook contacts (2007 and 2010). Maybe this happens, because you have set the syncoption to "Outlook to Google only" or "Merge Outlook wins"?

    Yeah, it is NOT that outlook has multiple pictures. It is that you can on HTC phones. It links the contacts and you have options of what picture to choose. It defaults back to the facebook after any sync. I really doubt this is ANY issue with GOContactSyncMod, but since you guys are in the code, I figured I would report it and maybe someone knew of some funny/odd setting.

    Doing a google search, it looks like this might happen on HTC phones as well when people update their Facebook page photo and the phone OTA syncs. So it REALLY should like an non issue for you.

    Again, just hoping the team might know of some setting to force the picture to use.

    I forwarded your issue to my developer colleagues, but they didn't know a solution, except for saying, thos serms to be a HTC issue. Sorry.
