    Is anyone else still having trouble with this? When I first brought the phone home I synced my contacts and it worked. All the pics and info transferred. I removed the account for some reason the other day and then decided to add it again. But it will not sync now. My FB contacts will not transfer over. Is anyone else still having this problem?

    Have you tried "Get Friends"? Go to Contacts -> Menu -> Get Friends and then the fb account you want to sync with.

    I am wondering if I should take this phone back and swap it for another if this function had already broken.... I would for certain if I hadn't already spent a bunch of money on apps. So now I have a decision to make. Deal without the facebook pics and hope no other problems show up, or exchange it and loose my money on the apps.
     
  6. You will not lose your money on any apps they are attached to the gmail you used so they will still be there as "paid" if you swap phones as long as you use the same email... As for the facebook sync I don't have an answer but you could always try another facebook app and see if its local to your phone... and you could also try a factory reset....

    Thanks so much! I was getting worried. I tried again tonight and still no deal. I am not going to worry about it if it is just the app thing and not a prob with my phone. I am SO happy to hear my apps are linked with my contacts b/c I bought some apps on my previous phone that I returned. How do I get them?

    ***Never mind! Figured it out! Thanks!!

    Robinelli,

    This thread is about a week old, but I am now having this same problem. I exchanged my phone today because my previous one kept randomly rebooting and turning off. Not sure if it was something I installed, but TMobile replaced it for me with no hassle.

    So yeah, it's just telling me that Sync is down at the moment. Did you ever do anything to fix this or is it just a matter of waiting on Facebook to fix it?

    Thanks!

    Having the same problem phone was looping through the start up screen would not boot. So i went into Sprint and they did a hard reset anyway after that i have logged in multiple different ways into facebook sync and all i get is a connection error message. All other data is syncing and all app updating excpet anything to do with FB. So your not alone hopefully its a BookFace problem

    Cool, good to know. Apparently this is just a Facebook problem. Hopefully they get it worked out soon. I liked having everyone's profiles synced into my contacts.
