I am on cm7 & HTC Desire. Old HTC Sence was linking my contacts with Facebook, Gmail etc. It gave me good suggestions what could be linked or an easy way how to link a contact item with some other kind of account. The current contact manager has a 'join' feature which I am not sure if I can use for Facebook.

Are there any advanced contact managers?

You have to go to Edit contact, then press the Menu key, then select Join. This gives you the list of suggested contacts to join. Works for me between Google contacts and Facebook on Galaxy S + CyanogenMod 7.1.

If you're only looking to have your contacts' display images synced with their Facebook avatars, I recommend you take a look at the freeware SyncMyPix - it's a little unwieldy but tends to do the job.

You can use the Join feature to merge Facebook contacts as well.

how? :-) If I select join I would expect facebook, gmail etc accounts from the same person to be in some kind of list so I can select. And that's it. Like it was in Sence. I really do not know how to do it now... –  Radek Mar 10 '11 at 23:43
    
They should be suggested, but only if your phone has a clear way of matching them (exact same name, same email, etc). You should be able to click a contact, choose Join, then find and click the contact you want to join (even when it doesn't provide the short list of possibilities). –  Matthew Read Mar 11 '11 at 3:29
    
it doesn't tell you what kind of contact it is. It might be an old already non existing email address. Or how can I link the contact with facebook? –  Radek Mar 11 '11 at 3:59
    
Hmm, mine has a little icon beside each contact's name that indicates where it's from. But I'm not on CM7, so maybe it doesn't have that. –  Matthew Read Mar 11 '11 at 15:41
