    Hey there,

    Before you ask, I'v searched the forum, but have not found an answer to this problem.

    When I go to Settings -> Accounts & Sync -> Facebook, it required me to log in. I enter THE CORRECT information, and yet it pop up with a little error saying "Login failed. try again"

    I'v tried this over 100 times I swear..
    I have tried turning Wifi on and off,
    Sync on and off,
    removed Facebook app,
    rebooting the phone,
    changing the password of my Facebook account
    and signing in on a desktop PC and deleting "Samsung Mobile" from Application Settings.. Unfortunatly no avail.
    I even tried setting up sync with brothers account. Same problem.

    If anyone has any infomation to help me overcome this problem please share.

    Thanks :)

    FYI: Default UI, Not rooted, Android 2.1.

    have you tried logging in through the facebook app itself or just the accounts and sync?

    Yeah I used the Facebook App which worked flawlessly, aswell as the Widget for the idle screen.

    Login to your facebook account and go to Privacy Settings >> Applications and Websites >> Edit Your Settings, and turn on platform applications, the option is a hyperlink near the top of the page. Good luck!

    Do you have to be using a gmail account for your facebook account?

    Login to your Facebook on a browser on computer, goto Privacy Settings>Application and Websites (in the bottom left corner)> Enable platform applications.

    Worked for me instantly.

    This seems not to be working :(. The Platform Application setting was ON already. But still getting "Login failed, Try Again" message when trying to add my facebook account. Also I noticed in Applications settings -> Mobile there is a new setting under "Which applications can send texts" called facebook for android. This cannot be unchecked as well :eek:. Not sure if it has something to do with this login issue. If anyone can enlighten us on this problem would be much appreciated :)

    Note: This only works if you could initially sync but it stopped working
    Hey mate i have the same issue, when i took out my sim card and put in another when i returned to mine i could no longer sync with facebook. I dont have a solution but i do have a work around. If you have a second email address, go into facebook and in accounts, account-settings add your second e-mail into the the emails that can access facebook. Then go back to accounts and sync on your phone and use this e-mail to access your facebook and hey presto you can sync again. I have no idea why you cant sync with the old one but at least this allows you to sync.
    Hope this helps

    I think I figured out a solution. For the Applications You Use section, if the Platform Applications are turned off, turn them on. If they're already on, turn them off, and then turn them back on. I was in the latter situation and that fixed it for me.

    Hope this helps.

    I had the same problem. Then I noticed that when I tried to login from the desktop, it told me that that email had been removed from my account. Ahh, yes, I remember I had been loging in with an outdated Hotmail account address, and I'd removed it from my account. When the session expired, it wouldn't let me log into the site again apparently (throwing that meaningless try again later error). The fix was to login with the remaining email address that I hadn't deleted. Then everything worked.

    I did this, but now I don't have any apps listed under platform apps. How do I add my phone(listed as Samsung Mobile) back there?

    Generally the solution is to login in to facebook from a computer and check the application permissions/settings.

    Fortunately changing your primary login email address worked for me. Hopefully I can change it back on both my facebook page and my android accounts

    when I try to check my feeds from the social hub they all say "Please login SNS account first" this applies to twitter, facebook and linkedin. In the messages area they are syncing with the exception of gmail which just doesnt update.

    The separate gmail, facebook and twitter apps work ok is is just the feeds into social hub that dont! - I only want the feeds i dont want them updating my contacts :confused:

    remove your sim card and connect via wifi sync to fb without your sim card in. then it should work, even after replacing your card :) everything else i tried failed.

    What worked for me was to remove all the synced accounts and then add them back in - this time around I was careful to read what I was syncing and made sure that contacts were not being synced so it gave me back my sync and stopped all those "unknown accounts" being added to my contacts.

    Had same exact issue happening to me, Removing accounts from synced accounts and readding them back worked fine for me. I'd say try removing all accounts from sync and then readd and see what happens.

    I notice this thread is about a year old, but I am having this issue. I have done everything to get my contacts and my calendar to sync on my Samsung Galaxy S GT-I9000 but nothing works. I've tried using the Integrated contact account option but every single time for the past week it say log in failed please try again later!!! I'm at my wits end!! I'm hoping this is a Facebook software issue as I have noticed that the "Samsung phone app" is not on my list nor can I re add it from facebook it self as it says that page is not available. If anyone has any ideas apart from drop kicking my phone out the door then PLEASE reply....... Thanks.
