    I've had the phone going on two weeks this Sunday and I still can't get Facebook to sync the contacts. It always says:

    "Sync is currently experiencing problems. It will be back shortly."

    I was wondering if anyone else had this problem but was finally able to get a sync to occur by doing some tricky steps or something?

    Exactly. It just won't sync for me. Google has no problem. It is a really frustrating thing because it seems to work for some and not others.

    I can only get my calendar to sync, contacts gives me the same error day after day. I wonder if it has to do with the number of contacts on facebook.

    I had to turn on wifi to get sync to work (I had it off by default). Once I turned it on, the sync was immidiate. It would not sync via 3g to FB for me (for contacts).

    Hope this helps.

    i downloaded some app on the market called FB Sync and it sync'd pretty easily. i dont know if its the same as if i were to sync with the installed sync on the phone, but i now have facebook profile images for my all my contacts.

    It worked for me when I turned Wifi on to sync contacts the day after it launched. Spent that whole first day trying to figure it out =/

    someone from another thread suggested to remove the FB a/c from settings and add it back again. It worked for me.

    Before that, I used the app SyncMyPix to download and associate FB pictures to my contacts, and it works great too.

    Like others have mentioned here mine synced with wifi but not 3g. Seems like that may be the key to get it to sync properly.
