The new 2.1 upgrade for ERIS seems great. A problem I am having with it is I can't get my contacts to link with my facebook. When I go to edit my contacts it doesn't give me an option anymore to link the contact with facebook. Anyone else having this problem? If so have u solved it. Thanks
I'm having the same issue. I'm logged into facebook with the android widget. I went back to settings and tried to sync with facebook again. Going one by one through contacts, I click on the icon, facebook to link to "facebook" contact, type name in select contact field and no matches come up.
I am logged in to the Facebook app and having the same problem. I've tried restarting the phone, tried the Market Facebook App, and tried Facebook.com through the browser. No dice.
I had a similar problem, but my phone actually synced half of my facebook contacts--everyone whose first name started with Mau or earlier in the alphabet. Sigh. I also get a random force close message every now and then: "com.htc.bg." From nosing around the internet, it appears that it is some sort of network error, either with twitter, facebook, or weather syncing. Either way, it's irritating, especially since I just wanted my facebook contacts' photos to appear in my favorites list.
I ended up downloading Facebook Sync from the market. There's something there that says the new Eris ROM prohibits it from working, but I didn't have a problem. However, I did disable Facebook for HTC Sense from syncing contacts before I used Facebook Sync (Settings > Accounts & Sync > Facebook for HTC Sense > uncheck Sync Contacts). It works just fine now, so maybe that will help you?
At first FB wasnt syncing to my contacts either. What I did:
1. Removed Facebook (for HTC Sense) account in your sync settings.
2. Turned phone off and pulled battery
3. Turned phone back on and added Facebook (for HTC Sense)
4. Sync Now
This took an hour so to sync all my contacts to FB again but it worked!
I'm also having problems getting my facebook to sync with my contacts. I've done everything from deleting Facebook & pulling my battery to just being patient & waiting. I got my update yesterday morning & as of now I can only sync the first 100 Facebook friends to my contacts in my phonebook. I'm very frustrated with this. Any other ideas?
I just got an LG Ally and am having the Problem
Here is exactly what I did.
went to add account
enter my info
then it just went to the Facebook App
it didn't add my contacts to my list, it doesnt pop up the icon to be about to sync them to existing contacts, and facebook doesn't show up under the accounts.
