    You might want to try and do a factory reset. If you do that it will reset all you accounts. You will have to set up all of you accounts again, but it might fix your problems. One thing, when it askes you to reset/re-format, make sure you have you sd card (NOT) check off, just your internal storage. After that is done you will have to activate you phone again, like brand new. I've had 1 time when it wouldn't let me activate my phone after a reset. I fixed it my doing the factory reset again...

Once you get that open and go to account storage then serviceaccounts.db them click on accounts. Then scroll to the right until u find "account_pretty_name" and the line that has Facebook in it click on that and delete record, then exit out and go to accounts and re-add ur facebook account! Hope this helps!! It worked for me!! Oh and of course u gotta be rooted.

    If you didn't check the box that said internal storage, then you didn't do a full reset. Not sure what else you could try. Sorry

    Same Issue

    I am having the exact same issue. I have a stock Verizon Droid 3. I have no intention of rooting it. I received it yesterday, so it is brand new.

    I would like to have my Facebook contacts appear in my contacts list. It would be even better if they synced and updated regularly the contact information and pictures.

    On older phones there appears to be options I do not have. And I have tried about ever forum post suggestion out there.

    If I go into Settings ---> Accounts ---> Facebook : the only option is to put in my user name and password. The menu button does nothing. There is no option to sync.

    In the market's Facebook app, as well as the stock "social networking" app, neither of which appear to have a sync. I have tried uninstalling and un-linking these in various orders, and nothing has worked thus far.

    In my Contacts ---> Menu ---> Display Options ---> Facebook ---> All Contacts : is checked. Unchecking, and rechecking appears to do nothing.

    In each individual contact there is no reference to FB. On my old phone there was a facebook user name if they were on FB.

    And lastly, when I click on a contact's image in my email/text/etc, there is no option to contact that person via FB.

    ANY thoughts would be appreciated.

    Leave the SQL lite stuff for the last-ditch attempt and try removing the app and settings first. Sometimes just setting it up again fixes problems.

    Try going to "accounts" and try adding there. My daughters was syncing and I removed the account there to stop it.

    Try that

    Thats correct. If I remove my facebook account the sync stops.
