Messaging plus app not showing Contact Pics
Contributor - Level 1

So when I first got the Galaxy s5 on Friday I set it all up; Facebook, Contacts, Messaging + and contact pictures showed up. However coming from the Galaxy s4 I wanted to maximize my battery's potential so I disabled Facebook during my working hours apparently by doing so the Messaging + app couldnt pull the pictures from my Facebook contacts.

But now I want to make Messaging + app as my default and no matter what I do, the Facebook Contacts of mine arent showing up (pictures).

Is there any other way to force sync it up?

Is the Messaging + app using the Verizon Cloud, so if Cloud is down so is Messaging + app.

In theory yes I do have pictures of my Facebook contacts on my phone, so I could go into each of my contacts and set a picture up but come on!!!

The irony is the other Messaging App is currently sync'ing properly.

So whats going on with the Messaging + app??

FAQ's on Messaging + doenst say

Live Chat via a Verizon Agent didnt help

Emailing the Developer didnt help

The Messaging + website didnt help

I'm out of options unless someone else is familiar with this app; brand new to me via s5

I hope you get a solution to this because I have the exact same problem and I love the VM app.  But if the contact pictures aren't fixed, I don't want to use it.

I was able to find a work around to solve the contact pictures issue with the VM app. I downloaded the "Sync.ME" app for facebook and linked in. It was relatively easy. The only thing I had to do for a couple contacts is create new contacts on the phone and link them with facebook. Seems to be working like it should. Hope this helps someone else!!!

Sync. Me fixed the issue for me as well in Message +

Oh look, Verizon is 3/3 of the last posts I read where they offered no help whatsoever.
