    So Mom who has shunned FB for years finally wants Messenger. Downloaded and began setup, put in her phone number as required and name and it began to give a code after I agreed to Terms of Service stopped, and threw up what I assume is an error as I can go no further. (#100) The parameter family_device_id is required. She's never had Facebook, though that shouldn't be a problem. Not sure what to do? Any suggestions? 928db298-9bb3-44c3-9897-8fa8b3c67c71.png

    Same result, I'm afraid. Good suggestion though, thanks. Didn't think of it since it's a brand new install.

    I really thought that was the ticket too. And honestly the first time I reinstalled it started to generate the code but then gave the error. The first time it didn't even try to give me a code, just gave the error after setup.

    Yes I did. Always worked for me even when I had crappy phones. I've never had a phone I couldn't easily download Messenger to. Honestly didn't think such a thing existed.

    its not a news bot....lol

    the op for this actually posted in another thread where that op was having issues. this op wanted to alert people having this same issue that there is a fix.

    its not actual news like i said. i have alerted the local authorities who hopefully will move this to the appropriate section.

    :) Merged into the thread he posted in. I should have had some coffee first as that merge took way too long :)

    For those who are a tad confused, I moved posts 8, 11 and 12 into this thread :)

    Carry on!

    Thanks! This worked like a charm! I used the April 2019 version and had no trouble at all.

    The issue is still there (I guess fb team is wishing more facebook accounts). Which version of the messenger should I download?
