I just bought this phone for my wife for xmas and everything so far is nice except for one issue we are having with the SNS service that feeds the ticker updates for facebook (I assume).
After adding the facebook account in the ticker settings, we go into Settings->Sync and there are 2 facebook accounts listed, one I assume is for the facebook app and the other for the ticker. When I click the tickers facebook account it shows the usual as options for syncing: Contacts, Calender, etc. At the top, there is an option that says "SNS Service: click to activate". When we click it, it will say "Activating ..." for about 30 minutes and eventually say there was an error and to "Please register manually". We have tried this multiple times and always get the same result. We did a Settings->Privacy->Factory Reset but had no results with that. Would a hard reset through the recovery menu provide a different result then doing it through the settings\privacy menu? Also, could trying to activate the SNS service using wifi instead of 3g help at all? My wife is out now, just trying to get some possible solutions before she gets home.
