    Pretty sure it's something with the phone, I have the same exact problem. It's really annoying having to unsync and resync my account every once in a while, but you gotta do what you gotta do, I guess. =\

    It may be an issue with Facebook. My Updates work fine, my calendar works fine, but I can't get my Facebook contacts to sync at all. BUT that was't always the case.

    I had this problem too... but was able to figure it out. I think it's a shortcoming of the facebook app syncing feature.

    Try this:
    From your contacts, hit the menu button and choose "Get Friends". Then choose your facebook account. It will show the people that were recently friended, or not yet synced.
