    A question about Facebook and the RAZR

    I just picked up my RAZR today because my Droid was no longer usable. I spent a few minutes searching for this topic but haven't found anything, so sorry if this was already talked about. I have the feeling I'll probably swap it out for the Nexus when it comes out, but I'm gonna give this one a shot. I'm kind of confused about a couple of differences involving Facebook.

    On the Droid, from the Facebook app I would hit settings and then choose the contacts I would sync. On the RAZR, there is no sync option. I then tried to go into the phone settings and there was no "Account and Sync" option like there was on the Droid. Am I missing something here?

    Thanks

    Also, what happened to the News and Weather widget? The new News widget is not at all similar to it.

    ??? In my settings menu there is an Accounts submenu. I don't sync my facebook contacts but that submenu is where you add accounts and do syncing for things like gmail and yahoo contacts.

    Yeah, and I added my Facebook account to that. In the Droid, you press the menu button and it gives you the option to sync that particular account right then. However, my phone hasn't synced with Facebook even though the account has been added all day.

    I wonder if you need to enable some sort of permission for Android or Droid Razr on your Facebook account settings. Go to Facebook on a web browser using the full version of Facebook and look at your account settings.

    Also, do you have your sync for the phone turned off?

    Another thought. Do you have your contacts filtered? Might it be hiding your Facebook contacts because it is only showing Google contacts or only contacts with phone numbers?

    Contacts are filtered, but it was fine like that on my Droid. It automatically synced Facebook contacts with Gmail contacts with the same name. My phone's sync is on, but unlike the Droid, there's no "Accounts and Sync" menu. Just "Accounts." There's nothing in the Facebook full page settings that look off.

    I was having a similar issue and was perplexed by the absence of the Accounts and Sync. This is either a Motorola skin thing or a change in this version of Android (probably the former). There is a Background Data option under the Data Manager menu item; be sure that is enabled. The original Sync setting still exists because I use Tasker and I was able to manually toggle it through Tasker. I had a Lo Batt Tasker profile configured to disable Sync and then when I charged I couldn't re-enable sync through the normal Android settings menus. Also the widget with stock Android that allowed to toggle the setting is blocked by Motorola too.

    I really wish the handset makers would stop putting these customizations on here, or at least allow us to remove them. Because of this I will probably return it for a Nexus, unless HTC crippled it with a skin too.

    The Nexus is made by Samsung at the direction of Google. There will be no skin on it.
