Same problem with the facebook app I downloaded, but the version that came with the phone works over the 3g network.
Is there a way to change this or am I SOL.
Welcome to the forums! If you have gone over the 1 GB data limit, you are being throttled, and the 3G connection will be too slow to play videos without freezing up every few seconds. I'm not sure about Facebook, I don't use it, but it could possibly be timing out if the connection is too slow. If you are being throttled, normal speeds will return after your next bill is due. If that's not the problem, i'm not sure. Do you have a very weak signal where you are? YouTube works fine for me until I hit the data cap.
