    Why is it that Facebook only syncs "MY CONTACT CARD"?? I've read other forums and threads that other people are getting their contacts but sometimes it stops at D or it stops at M..etcetcetc..........

    Why is it that I don't get no friends?? have 2000+ and even friendstream doesn't show my friends. only contact that is synced is My Contact Card..which is me!! am i my only friend?? LOL..anybody kno why?? :mad::mad::mad:

    this has happened on fresh 2.0d, damage 2.08, damage 2.08.1, and now on aloysius 2.0.8..wha gives??

    with 2000+ friends, I'm sure it'd take a very long time for them all to sync. It also depends on how you want it to sync...if you want your facebook friends in your contacts list (which I found to be a pain in the ass), or if you just want friendstream and the status/photo updates to sync. As I recall, it took me an hour or two to be able to sync my sister's contact card with her facebook account, and she's only an "S", and I've only got about 200 facebook friends. I believe there was also a little bug where it'd only sync on 3G, or maybe it was only on WiFi, one of the two (might have been fixed in 2.08.1, no idea)

    It's also entirely possible that you don't have your facebook account set to sync properly or something along those lines.

    strange enough, before i rooted all of my friends loaded with relative ease. is it just these roms that's preventing the load?? i've synced and synced and synced. still no results. only managed to sync my contact card lol..

    not too worried about friendstream even though when i try to view my friends on it it doesn't load them and it just force closes. i can see status updates however but i want these to be for my contacts.

    i heard about syncing on wifi but that didn't help either. i believe i was on damage 2.08 when i did the sync. perhaps fresh 2.0d..but nevertheless why isn't it syncing when the forums clearly say "facebook sync works!!"?? wha is so different about my process from your process? do u have a setting somewhere in the background perhaps?

    when u say i don't have my facebook set to sync properly, do u mean my actual facebook account, or just a setting within my phone?

    thx for the reply :cool:

    What I mean is if you go into settings>accounts & sync, is "Facebook for HTC Sense" in there, right along with google (and probably weather). If it is, look and see what's selected to sync (mine has live feed and contacts as options), as well as check the update frequency.

    Also, if you go into the friendstream app and check the settings for it, make sure that facebook for HTC Sense is checked under show updates, and that it's also under the accounts.

    all that is checked. i also have noticed that whenever i try to sync my accounts, everything syncs okay, but when it comes to the facebook sync, after about a good 2 minutes a force close window pops up..somethinga bout htc.btc or something like that.

    i think this is it but i'm not sure how to prevent it.

    it's probably choking on the 2000+ friends

    Has there been any resolution to the facebook sync issue? I am also having trouble syncing my contacts with my facebook friends. Any help will be appreciated.

    i'm still trying to find the best solution for this, but facebook sync i hear works really good, but i've downloaded SyncMyPix from the market. really good app as it syncs your photos or u can manually sync them. no status updates however
