    I cannot seem to get my facebook contacts to sync. When i setup the account it sucessfully syncs the calendar but has an error while trying to sync contacts. It says "Sync is currently experiencing problems. It will be back shortly." It has been saying this for 3 days. I have reinstalled Facebook, Reset the phone, everything. Any input?

    I have the same issue and have done everything you have to resolve it with no success.

    I successfully synced my Facebook stuff yesterday and today I'm getting the error you are. I think it's just a network interruption thing, but I could be wrong.

    I never had this issue on my Captivate, mine synced the first time I tried. However, my wife was having this issue last night when she tried to sync her contacts, but she tried again today and was able to get them to sync.

    I posted a somewhat lengthy way of getting this done a couple days ago, so it's a few pages back now. The simple "sync contacts" would be so much easier than this, but at least it has the same result until the sync issue is fixed. Here's the link:
