I noticed with 4 bars facebook app gives error or take slong to load even with 4G. I also do not see where you can sync contacts like I used to with the OD.
Google is no longer playing nice with Facebook by default. To add Facebook Sync of Contacts, you have to go to My Accounts, and add the Facebook information through the Motorola version of Facebook. It will then sync the contacts.<br><br>
I'm sorry, I probably should have been more clear.
Go into My Accounts
Choose Add Account
You will see an icon for Facebook (If you have the Facebook app installed you will see 2 icons).
Click the icon (if nothing happens, you chose the Facebook app which no longer works, select the other one).
Add your Facebook Login information.
If will ask you if you want to sync ALL Contacts or Just sync to contacts you already have. Choose the appropriate choice and select OK.
It will take several minutes to a couple of hours (depending on selection) to sync everything up. Some will automatically join together (if e-mails match), others you will have to join up manually. But you will have all your Facebook contacts now loaded.
I am having the same problem.... I installed the FB app and my contacts are not synced any longer. I followed the steps you had and yes I have (2) fb icons when i went into "My Account - Add Account" One has a green check mark on it when I tap on it a pop up appears saying "You can only have one active facebook service account at a time" but it is not showing up in "My Account"
I have the same problem and have search many threads including ones on Facebook. I would first get the connection error. The I would get "Your username or password is incorrect. Please check them and try again." The same username and password works using the browser and the Facebook App. It just does not work using the built-in Facebook version. And the built-in version is the one that will sync so I can't sync.
I too am have major issues when attempting to sync FB contacts with my existing (gmail) contacts. Actually, it seems to be nonexistent on the BIONIC. Maybe I am missing something here, but when I am adding my facebook account as described in the above steps it gives me a done message with no option to sync contacts. I access the Social Networking icon in app drawer and there is no option there. I downloaded the FB app via the market, and that's also a no go (not even in the 'Settings' option) I removed my account and started over again following the above steps with the FB app that I downloaded, but still no option. Finally, I removed/deleted my FB account under the 'Social Networking icon; then, cleared the data & cache under 'Manage Apps' and uninstalled the app, and did a battery pull
It's showing I have 3G with 4 signal bars, and WiFi is on & connected with my home network. Re-installed the FB app again via the market, opened, added my account, but it gave no option to sync contacts. It went straight to FB with no option via 'Settings.' I also tried going to my contacts after adding individual's FB emails to their contact info. I selected 'Join" after selecting 'Edit' and there was no option for FB; the only option it gave was to join it with existing contact out of current gmail contact lists. I also, checked the link given to FB about "Known Issues...," that too is a dead end. Does anyone have any ideas or other suggestions that I haven't already done.
