Downloading Pictures from Facebook onto my Moment

I've done this before and I don't remember how I did it....How do I download/save pictures from Facebook onto my phone so I can edit/assign them to my contacts?

Open the pic that you want and "long press" on it.  The menu will pop up and save image will be one of them.  It will then be in your download folder.

Ok, I tried it and my only options are 'view' or 'photo details.'  Any suggestions?

Dont use the actual Facebook app.  Use the browser one. (Facebook Touch)

Then you can save the pictures with the long press function.

There are various ways to import contact pics from FB:

MANUAL. If you're at your desktop, you could access your Gmail account Contacts in one browser tab and FB in another. By right-clicking on the FB friend's profile pic you can copy the image URL and paste it into the contact info for the Gmail contact. (Gmail allows you to change the picture by uploading a file, accessing Picasa or providing a URL.)

VIA APP. You could also use SyncMyPix, a free app available at the Market, that automates this process by matching your phone contacts to your FB friends and grabbing the pics for you. For your convenience, I've included the QR Code below:

Is there a way that I can use a facebook picture as my wallpaper on my phone?
