    I've been trying to add my Facebook account since I got the Evo on launch day and I continue to get the same error message. I haven't seen any threads mentioning this so I'm assuming it's just me, but I'm hoping others have experienced this and may know a fix.

    I go to Menu>Settings>Accounts & Sync>Add acount>Facebook for HTC Sense, I enter in my e-mail and password and receive the following message:

    "The service is currently unavailable. Do you want to try again?"

    I select Yes but it just keeps popping up and has done so for the last four days. Does anyone know a fix for this? I've tried uninstalling the app and reinstalling. I called Sprint and they suggested I reset the phone which is not something I want to do. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

    RESOLVED: Need to login to facebook (on PC) and go to privacy settings, then applications and websites, then you must turn on Platform Applications. then it works like a champ!

    the only time i have that issue, was when a remote user tried to log on to my acct from an unknown device, and apparently failed to hack the p-word. i had to log on and confirm or deny the device, then reset my password. after that worked lovely.

    This is irritating. I downloaded the syncmypix and then I deleted it before I logged into facebook. I wonder if thats the issue.

    I just added this security feature and I get an email when I tried to login in through HTC Sense. This makes me believe its a facebook problem on their end.

    Same problem with my evo, but I just got it so I thought that it was something that I didnt have set correctly.
