I'm on Android and Syncing my contacts with Gmail/Google contacts. I don't have a Facebook account.

And lot of my phone contacts are on Facebook where they have a profile ipcture.

Is there any way to sync my contacts and match them against those photos on Facebook based on their phone number?

Your down vote isn't fair. I have already tried that software, If you read my question I have clearly mentioned that I don't have a Facebook account and that software need one. What I'm looking for is a public search and match. –  D_Guy13 Jun 7 '13 at 14:34
You are right of course. If you don't have a Facebook account there isn't a way to use information contained within a Facebook profile. You didn't mention you already tried that software, update your question to reflect that fact, and I will remove the downvote. –  Ramhound Jun 7 '13 at 14:39
If you don't have a Facebook account how do you have contacts on Facebook? –  slybloty Jun 7 '13 at 17:42
@slybloty, I Think there is a workround, just needs a coder. 1. Find user id & name: graph.facebook.com/nytimes 2. A search on this page with the Name/Username will return their image, publicaly: facebook.com/search.php?q=jack&init=ffs 3. Parse it and append it to Google Contact. I'm not aware if Google Contacts API can allow such thing or not, just an idea. –  D_Guy13 Jun 7 '13 at 18:46
Are referring to facebook app or facebook account? –  slybloty Jun 7 '13 at 19:03
