    So in early May, I got the Android update thing for my Droid Eris. I started it, and it took f o r e v e r. Ever since then, I can't link my Facebook account to my phone. I've seen a lot of similar situations but nothing exactly the same.

    I can't link any of my phone contacts to my Facebook contacts. I have the Facebook for HTC Sense and the Facebook app. I can log on and view my Facebook accout, etc but when I go to People my contacts don't have pictures. I've tried to go to menu > settings > account & sync and remove my Facebook for HTC Sense account and manually sync or whatever. Still didn't work. A "force close" message appears every time I try to sync, yet my Google accounts will sync.

    I've tried going to each contact and manually link them to their Facebook profile but nothing even loads, as in it will say I have no friends to choose from (whomp whomp).

    I finally gave in and installed that Sync My Pix app but I'm not satisfied. Mainly, because that app saves all the contacts pictures in my photo albums and it doesn't do their status updates, etc. Really, I just don't want an app to make my phone do something it's already suppose to do.

    I am having the same problem.

    This forum must be dying, used to, you would ask a question and people would be all over it like white on rice.

    Eh, i think it may be more that the people who used to be so active on here have since upgraded their phones and moved on to a different forum.

    But when i had my eris i had the same problem. Not much you can do besides maybe a factory reset. Or root the phone and pray that you pick a rom that fixes it.

    Root it and try out some of the froyo roms over on the xda forums. You won't be disappointed.
