Default Google Gmail Sync and Facebook Contact Sync

Please Login to Remove!

Hey guys - I use my BB for personal use - no enterprise. Google Sync did a number on my address book - creating duplicates in the hundreds and deleting people. Read on here to delete all contacts, sync then unsync. I think it's still syncing some stuff though. Any success with you guys in syncing the two and NOT getting messed up #'s or hundreds of dups?

Also, when I deleted all contacts and then re-entered them, my Facebook app stopped updating their contact pic with their Facebook pic. It still updates my calendar though. It's weird.

Anyone else have these problems and know what to do?

Where you using the Google Sync app or the Contact sync via the email setup?
8830 -> 8330 -> 9550 -> 9650

I use Google Sync with no problems. Just make sure that your gmail address is the default calendar. Options->Advanced Options->Default Services->Calendar(CICAL). If it's not I recommend deleting the Google sync app and reinstalling after you set the default calendar. Note that Gmail has an option to delete duplicate entries. From what I understand it works well.
