    I'm not getting wall post or comment notifications on my Droid X. I get notifications for private messages and friend requests only. I have tried deleting fb and reinstalling it, rebooting my phone, updating it to the newest version, etc. I'm so frustrated because my mom has the same exact phone I do and she gets all fb notifications. Both of our settings are exactly the same. Verizons tech support was no help and suggested a hard reset, which I don't want to do. Any suggestions?

    Are you using the built in blur messenger app or the official FB app? Ensure sync is turned on in settings/my accounts and in the FB app, go to the menu page, push menu hard key, settings, and ensure all notifications you want are checked.

    I have the same issue with the official App. All sync and settings are correct. I just chalked it up to an issue with the app.

    This.

    The Facebook app is very spotty as far as when push notifications are sent. Sometimes I get them all, and right away. Other times I'll only get 1/10th of my notifications and it could be an hour later. Or a combination of each scenario. Its not your phone, its the Facebook app itself.
    Also check to see if your settings are set up properly on Facebook itself. Meaning you have it checked/unchecked to receive notifications while you are logged into the main site.
    Being on 3G or wifi seems to matter a little too. Usually while on wifi, I get nearly all my notifications. On 3G is when it seems to be spotty.

    But rest assured, its an issue with the FB app :)
    Its come along way, but still needs some major improvements.

    Thanks for the help. What settings on the site are you talking about? Under notifications I have it set to notify via email. Sms and email are my only options. Am I missing something?

    There is an option somewhere, and for the life of me I can't find it now.
    Lets say you are logged into Facebook on an actual desktop computer. This setting would turn off your mobile notifications while you are logged in to the computer. Then once you sign off/log out from the computer, the alerts would again be sent to your phone. I guess its to stop redundant alerts. Since you're logged in online, there's no need to have them sent to your phone also. I swear it was in the "notifications" section, but since I can't activate mobile alerts (a whole other issues...grrr) that option may not be available.
    But I'm not sure. Facebook may have removed that setting.

    do you get notification through texts or the app? i dont think I've ever gotten consistent notifications through the app, and texts come through about 60% of the time...

    dont know if it matters, but i just checked my settings, and the notification ringtone was set to "silent", which seems weird to me. not sure if it'll make any difference, but i changed it to something that will actually make noise...

    I think it might just be the app.

    well, nothing changed for me yesterday after changing the notification tone setting yesterday. thinking about it, i don't know if I have ever gotten notifications when i wasn't directly using the app. I get sms notifications, but sometimes those are hit and miss. I know that doesn't help OP much, just sayin'.
