    I've read some threads about this and haven't found one for the moment.

    Everyone I see who has the Motorola Droid has there Contacts linked to Facebook by default it seems. On the my Moment it doesn't do this. I figured it was because I was running 1.5 and the droid had 2.0.

    I've updated to 2.1 and still Facebook doesn't sync at all for the Moment. Does the Moment not do this for some reason? Only Verizon network? Kinda confusing that the Facebook app doesn't do the same thing. I have tried going to Accounts and Sync and tried adding Facebook as new account but nothing happens. Once you click on Facebook it kicks you back to the previous screen.

    I also installed SyncMyPix but not really what I wanted and Synced a lot of them incorrectly.

    Anyone know a way to sync this?

    Seems to not work for the Moment. SyncMyPix is your best bet. If you don't like it, try Facebook Sync.

    It isn't apparently built into 2.1 for the moment and there are several other threads about this. Please search before duplicating threads.

    Considering all the security problems I've been reading about lately with Facebook, you may want to consider yourself lucky.

    What is weird is 2.1 does provide an option to sync to facebook. When I click on it nothing happens. I just used SyncMyPix. It worked great.

    is this the only phone that this is an issue on? the apk syncs photos and phones but it adds like 5 slots for contact info and it takes yiu to your own profile. i seem to get that it works fine on other phones so what gives?

    what rom are you using? stock? i just tried it on noobnl's and it will match contacts to profiles but won't sync anything. plus, every time it syncs, it adds another "view profile" link to each contact... so through a day it gets like 2 or 3 more links to the bottom lol
