I had the HTC wildfire S like a week ago. It managed to automaticly fill my contact list with phone numbers and pictures from Facebook. Is this function not in the galaxy s3? If so, how can I get it?

I'd recommend using Haxsync to sync Facebook data to your phone, works great for me.

Does this work for phone numbers, though? This is my current issue. – Jeeva Aug 14 '12 at 10:23
Hmm, it doesn't seem to sync phone numbers for some reason. Good point, didn't notice that before! – onik Aug 14 '12 at 10:47
I'm sure it used to, I recommended it for this exact purpose yesterday, but after research found it doesn't any more. Apparently Facebook have blocked all third party apps from this function. Grr! – Jeeva Aug 14 '12 at 12:03

Go to contacts....Press the left button (the settings button) and then Accounts. Here you can add your facebook account. (Also I guess if you use facebook app, it asks you whether you want to sync contacts or not.)
