    Thats not your droid's fault, that is the app's creator's fault. Just use the browser and go to facebook that way. Its more reliable.

    Are you still within your first thirty days of owning it? I saw what you posted about the texting, and it's the first I've heard of such behavior. If you are within that limit, you can go back to VZW and have then swap it out fors new one. That MAY solve your Droid problems.

    Sorry, forgot to mention that doing that won't fix a problem on FB's end.

    1. calm down a bit dude. i dont think you're the only one. i know mine is doing it too and its not fun. also, as others have said, its not the droid's fault - its the people who made the app. i think everyone agrees that the fb app for the droid is the worlds worst. just gonna have to deal with it or use the web based fb version or another app - which is the beauty of android (if you dont like it or it doesnt work, use another one or make it yourself).

    2. just curious to know if you knew what you were buying before you bought it. android = open source mobile os = bound to have some issues. especially when its only at 2.1. look how long bb, apple, ms, palm, have had to try and work things out and they still have problems. if you want something thats gonna give less problems, get an htc with sense. also, dont put so many random apps on it that might not actually work properly, this could be causing some issues.

    sorry, not trying to be a jerk but i hear this from tons of friends who wanted to get something cool after i touted the droid around. some ditched iphones and now everyone is complaining. you're part of a movement and its about the openness of the os and how carriers could possibly begin to lose control. either work thru some issues or go buy an iphone.

    use m.facebook.com, or touch.facebook.com or even facebook.com.. there are more than enough ways to access your pokes. ;)
    I'm in the same boat as you, the app is completely inconsistent in connecting and posting.

    Screw the app, just use the actual website! That's the true beauty of the droid, I use the full version of facebook in the browser without a problem.

    Mines crap 75% of the time also. I love the touch version of the site in the browser, much better IMO.

    And I did know what I was getting into when I bought the phone and I found that comment offensive I don't want an iPhone I like Verizon too much and I hate people that act like their OS is a religon
