    When I go to sync accounts and then add an account, I can not add my Facebook account to sync. Every other account will work, but when I click on Facebook it does nothing. Is there any other way that I can get my Facebook to sync with my contacts on my phone?

    There are issues syncing with the Facebook app. You have to use something like Friend Caster or some other apps from the market.

    As JSM said, you need an app like friend caster, syncmypix, hax sync....

    I believe some ROMs have fb sync built in.

    Yeah all the 4.0.3 ROMs I have tried work as far as syncing goes. Not sure if it is because of the devs or a fix in the newer version though.

    Devs have added it in. Google won't allow Facebook to sync contacts anymore because of the way they were using the data. Its a big fight going on between the two right now.

    To be or not to be........................wait what was the question? This signature has been Tapatalk approved.

    No problem. Friend Caster works pretty well in the mean time, I haven't tried the others though.

    Thanks again. And I agree it does seem petty.

    I couldn't figure this out either and posted a thread almost identical to this @
    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/showthread.php?t=190329

    Summery is:
    - Use haxsyc for a paid options (light weight and only for facebook syncing)
    - Use friendcaster for a free option (more of a facebook app replacement though)
    - Or root your phone and find a ROM with a facebook sync built in.

    i just bumped into this issue. apparently facebook and google dont like eachother on this topic ....

    i dont like the idea of handing off my facebook account info to a 3rd party for syncing contacts .... but then again is that any better than facebook itself ? ... probably not

    in the meantime i was looking around for a script for stock rooted 4.0.4 that i can add to the phone to get the contacts to sync.

    i used this solution for my dX running cm9 4.0.4, but im not sure if it works on the stock rooted nexus running 4.0.4 since its not an AOKP rom ...

    anyone try it out ?
