    Not sure what needs fixed. It shouldn't take 4 days, but it does normally work.

    Mine, syncs as long as I am logged into my facebook account. if you aren't logged in you won't see them in your contacts. I have lost all my contact before, so now I save them to my Sim card and a full copy on my sd card. Just saying

    Sent from my DROID3

    I had the droid 3 and just got a replacement droid3. I logged into the faceook app that was on the homescreen and it automatically put it into the My Account section. It wouldnt sync for me either. None of the forums give an answer besides using a 3rd party sync app. I went to Accounts, then removed the Facebook account, then Add Account and added the facebook one back in, logged in and hit Next. And then it took a while, but it synced all my contact. (Also not sure why, but both of my Droid3s had 2 Facebook Symbols under Add Account. I chose the smaller FB Square logo. The larger square wouldnt even go to the login screen.) Try that.

    Hmm, interesting.

    I borked something about 2 weeks ago, and none of my contacts were syncing. Tried everything I could think of - deleting my Facebook account off the phone, deleting the Facebook app, re-adding everything, combinations thereof - nothing worked. When I viewed the phone's built-in Facebook connection account (smaller blue square in the Accounts menu), the username was blank and greyed out. Weird. The phone would then complain about having a blank username, but I could not type in my username to fix the problem. Catch-22. I finally resorted to the ol' factory reset (after backing up everything with Titanium)... and success! Facebook contacts synced perfectly, along with all the photos, and have been doing so ever since.

    It used to be that doing a factory reset was an atomic pain in the neck, but with Titanium to restore all my apps/settings (launcher config, which takes forever and a day to set up), the whole process was done in under an hour. Annoying, but now my phone is working great. Strangely, doing a factory reset seems to have extended my battery life dramatically; granted I have the extended battery installed, but with heavy usage the best I've been able to do is run it down to around 40%. I watched several videos, took pictures, tons of text messages, calls, the works.
