Phoneface came about a while back and I loved it on my 8330.  It allows you to easily manage and locate contacts by simply scrolling through pictures on your device.  You can call, email and send SMS with a few quick clicks.  Setting the application to launch from a convenience key made it a real time saver for me. The new version allows you to sync to Facebook and/or Twitter to display your friends profile images. This means when they update their profile pictures, Phoneface will do the same on your device.  You can also pick custom images from your device, or a stock image straight from the application. If you find yourself constantly fumbling through the address book, maybe Phoneface can help you out.  Phoneface is available for all devices including Storm specific version. A free trial is also available.

Does it have this new feature of connecting to facebook?

It has the facebook feature. I downloaded the trial version. Seems sweet, im going to wait for a few more comments before i go ahead and make the purchase.

Is this a new upgrade that I can get if I bought the program previously or do I have to buy the whole thing again?

I want a decent program for incoming calls, i.e. seeing a nice full screen photo of the person calling me.

I tried a few, but they have been, well, let's say crap, for lack of a better word.

Any ideas, anyone?

I get this message "The application phoneface has attempted to open a connection to a location inside the firewall and outside the firewall which is not allowed by your IT policy."

What does this mean? It locks my phone.

I'm sorry, but this costs $9.95?

Jonneh

Lol I know!! What the heck...10 bucks for something as simple as this. I'm sorry, but that is crazy pricing right there. This is something I would pay for, but nowhere near 10 or more dollars...I can easily do without it.

If u have OS 4.6 u can get facebook 1.5 that adds profile pics to your blackberry contacts. So unless you can't read and need to dial by pics I see no need for this app or at least pay for it

Try this on the Storm

It dont even work with it, yes I got the Storm version

anyways, I rmb trying this on my old Curve and just let me say that it drains the battery while I use it, no good

I used the Storm version several weeks ago and it worked fine. If it wasn't $10 I definitely would have bought it. That's just too much for what you get (IMHO).

What kind of problems are you having?

I downloaded a free trial, and it is clunky and very slow when finding pics to add to a contact.
I would never pay $10.00 for this app.

shelland

I really like the functionality, but not for $10. If it also provided full-screen caller ID pics, I might pay that price...

YOU WANT TO SEE YOUR FRIENDS FACES WHEN THEY CALL DOWNLOAD VRINGO FACEBOOK- IT DOES THE SAME THING AND ITS FREE- THERE I JUST SAVED YOU TEN BUCKS! ALL HAIL ME

A few days back I installed the face phone and I love it.

This thing looks unfinished, and it would take forever to go thru contacts, even if there's only 10 or so on the list since you have to go one by one.

shelland

I had never heard of this app so downloaded it. After calling my phone once, I'm deleting it. I like the concept, but the picture is about the size of the top of my pinky finger.

And it is completely different functionality than Phone Face - Phone Face is a graphical way to make phone calls while Vringo is just picture ID (without displaying any call information).

Everyones last name was an adjective of some sort?
