I used to have sense but rooted and went to a senseless ROM. The only thing I liked about sense was Facebook for HTC Sense. Every app I have found to sync facebook profiles only does the pictures.Is there an app that will sync birthdays to the calendar and pictures to my contacts, and allow me to choose which syncs where? I have some friends with Facebook names that I do NOT want to be as my phone contacts.
All the videos i have watched of comparisons and what not, i have loved what i have seen from Sense UI. Even though its still the first day the X's UI seems bland to me. So is there any downloads that might help ?
I'm trying to work for my Mom with her new HTC Desire HD. She likes Sense overall and wants to keep it, but she saw my EVO 3D running MIUI and absolutely loved the calendar app, with the different settings and the overall feel of it.
Is there any app that I could install on her HTC Desire HD (not rooted, S-ON) that would do this? (One of the most important features is the ability to set custom ringtones for appointments in the calendar)
Is it possible to get the black status bar similar to the Sense UI bar without rooting the phone? I don't want to root my phone b/c I love everything else but I want that status bar really bad. Any ideas?
Like everyone who's updated to 2.1, I'm experiencin the same bugs with Facebook (i.e. all my FB contacts show up in my dialer and my txt msgs). Anyways, I was toolin around in Accounts & Sync under Settings. Right now, the accounts I have set up are Google, Weather, and Facebook for HTC Sense. When I click Add an Account, there's something called just "Facebook," in addition to the "Facebook for HTC Sense."I've always known there were two Facebook apps (or whatever you wanna call them) on my phone, cause when I want to share a pic I take, I can do it using either "Facebook" or "Facebook for HTC Sense." I always share the picture using "Facebook" because it allows me to post a comment as well.Anyways, getting back to Accounts & Sync, I was wondering if anyone could shed some light on how these two apps differ. Maybe if I choose to sync the "Facebook" account as opposed to "Facebook for HTC Sense," that could solve some of these issues we're all having? I have no idea, but I'm hesitant to do anything for fear of clogging up my phone's contact list with Facebook friends.
My HTC Desire's Facebook directory lists 205 friends for my Facebook, while in reality I have 207 (and Facebook for Android app of course shows them all, too)I'm not quite sure why or how 2 of them have gone missing, but I think one went when I messed a bit up, merged 2 contacts on my phone and started removing information from that contact, so it in the end had only 1 number and 1 facebook friend linked to it. Ever since I haven't been able to see the friend whose contact/link I removed in Facebook directory.I've tried uninstalling Facebook for Android to access Facebook for HTC Sense, but apparently it can't be completely uninstalled - only the update(s) for it, and the cache/data can be uninstalled for what I can tell.
So I've uninstalled it's updates, I've cleared it data/cache - and I've cleared all the cache/data from Facebook for HTC Sense too.I've removed my phone-linked Facebook account, too, with no luck.No matter how many times I try re-syncing or refreshing, the 2 contacts are still missing.One new contact that I added as my friend today appeared normally, though.Any ideas how to fix this? It's annoying when I can't link 1 contact to her Facebook, when I have pretty much everyone else linked to theirs.
Well, I seem to either A) have a problem or B) it's a problem just in general.I have Facebook installed, and there's obviously Facebook for HTC Sense. I want to sync my Facebook account and only that. I don't personally care to use the Sense inspired widgets because I like my streams separate.Anyway, I go into the Accounts menu in settings and removed the Facebook for Sense account and tried to add a new account, but whenever I click Facebook, it does absolutely nothing.I don't understand what's going on. If anyone has any clue, I'd love to hear it!
I'm a little confused as to how to differentiate between Facebook and Facebook for HTC Sense, which both can be found in Settings>Accounts & Sync.Does anybody know the difference between the two apps? Is the Sense version purely for the Friends Stream, as there's the same situation for Twitter?
I have the EVO and I recently added a new Facebook contact. When I go into people>online directories>facebook he shows up in my friends list (which is great that it synched up). When I select the contact, his details pop up fine (again great). However, when I select the refresh icon at the bottom (which is supposed to pull up his wall) I get the error message "The application Facebook for HTC Sense (process com.htc.socialnetwork.facebook) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again." The only option I have is to select "force close" in the error window. This seems to be the only contact this is happening with, so I'm not sure what the problem is. I have tried logging out and back into Facebook for HTC Sense, but that has not solved the issue.
I have the HTC Droid Eris. Before the 2.1 update, I just had Facebook sync, but afterwards, it was synced with Facebook for HTC Sense. My problem is that it won't let me sync with just Facebook.I still want my contacts to sync with my phone, because I like the facebook pictures on there. Personally, I like Facebook sync better, because I don't like having all my Facebook contacts on my phone, because the numbers show up twice (number that I have on my phone plus the number that my friends have on Facebook).To prevent that from happening, I would rather have my phone connected to Facebook only and not Facebook for HTC Sense.I thought I could do it, but it won't let me even click on Facebook--like, nothing pops up or anything.I wasn't sure if it was my phone, so I took my dad's Eris and tried to do the same, it works fine on his phone, but I can't get mine to do sync with facebook whatsoever. Thank you very much.
I have no idea how I managed this, but Facebook for HTC Sense isn't showing up anywhere and I wanted to sync my contacts and photos.I've been using the regular Facebook app and not the Sense version because I lost it somewhere along the way.I don't know if I can reinstall or if it's hiding somewhere.It does show up in "all applications", but it's not there in the "accounts and sync" menu.It also doesn't show up in my Fb Applications account when I log on through a computer.It only shows "Facebook for Android."I can't access an icon, I can't seem to access it at all.I don't think this is Froyo specific because I've had this issue since I got this phone (the week it came out).Anyone have any idea, short of factory reset, how to fix this?
I saw a thread about this but couldn't find it to reply in.I love facebook and uploading photos and yes there is a facebook for Android application but i was wanting to know is there other things i have yet to discover about it?
Back when my friend first got her Droid, she showed me that she synched her Facebook account to her phone and all of her contacts were from Facebook. Does this still work the same way for HTC's Sense UI?I know that you can synch your Facebook account to the Incredible but does it actually make all of your contacts your Facebook friends? This is a feature I would like alot because all of my friends that I am close with are my FB friends and I really like having all of my contacts have pictures and their full names.
I am pretty big on privacy and have my FB privacy settings customized to my likes. When I first activated the Evo, I was able to connect using HTC Sense into my FB account. I reset the phone back to "Factory Settings" this morning, and since then, I'm unable to connect and am getting the same warning message:
Last week I cleared the data on Facebook for HTC Sense, Facebook app and Instagram app on my Wildfire S. After that I couldn't get Instagram to connect to Facebook and thought I'd done something wrong.. Last night I got a new phone (2nd hand - Incredible S) and I still can't get Instagram to connect with Facebook. I keep getting "authorize htc sense for facebook" in a triangle at the top when I try and it seems to go part the way (logging in, choosing to allow Instagram to share things on my behalf) then it goes to a "page cannot be displayed" type page and won't go any further.
I'm signed into HTC Sense (same email) and tried to sync Facebook but the only part that won't sync is "sync live feed" which I'm guessing is linked in with why Instagram isn't connecting.
I know there's a way to update your status through HTC sense Facebook app, as I've seen it "via HTC Sense" on facebook and I know they have an android phone..I've searched and searched but found nothing.
I tried sync-ing my contact book for my facebook contact updates but it showed no updates even after a few days, but my contacts do have updates on actual Facebook.So I thought I'd try to delete off my account from Accounts&Sync and re-add my account again after a few minutes.After re-adding the account, my friend stream works fine, sync-ed as per normal but when I click on my contacts book/people and tried to link my contacts to their facebook, it showed a blank list and words in the middle showing "No matches found", in other words, I don't have friends?I waited for a hours and tried to re-add and sync again but still can't link my contacts to their facebook because it doesn't show up any facebook link for me to link to my contacts no matter how I try.I resetted my phone back to factory defaults and tried again but it's still the same.
I'm trying to connect my Hero (2.1) to Facebook, I can log in to the Facebook app (latest version) with no problems, but when I try and log into Facebook for HTC Sense (in settings->accounts) I get an error telling me that the service is currently unavailable. Several people posting online have fixed this issue by changing Facebook privacy settings; but as far as I can see my settings permit the application. I have removed FB for HTC Sense from the Facebook Applications page and when I attempt to login it reappears there with permissions allowed but the phone repeats the unavailable message. I have tried logging out of the Facebook app first but this makes no difference. I have just rooted my phone and installed VillainROM 12, but I don't think this issue directly relates to the rooting. Feel free to redirect me to the rooting subforum if I'm wrong.
ALright, so I just went from the original samsung galaxy to the htc desire and one of the first things I tried was to sync contacts with facebook. I only want existing contacts to be synced so I chose not to use the facebook for htc sense app as it will sync all facebook users and add them to my contact list (correct me if I'm wrong). So I tried to sync with facebook for android but nothing happens when I chose the account. I get prompted to sign into the app, which I do, I get into the app like normal, but no contacts are synced. Returning to the accounts settings page I cant even select the facebook. It is there to add but when I hit it nothing happens. I did sync with the official twitter app with no problem which I noticed with the samsung galaxy (running froyo) should be the same procedure. Kinda strange issue if you ask me... anyone else encountering this problem?
I had to clear my contact data the other day from settings/applications/manage applications/contacts storage to cure a google mail account sync problem. It worked and the phone now syncs fine. But, I now have duplicates of all facebook events in all my calendars. Can I safely delete the data in settings/applications/manage applications/Facebook for HTC Sense? do you think if I did that that it would sort the problem? Would this cause issues with my contacts, as some are linked to Facebook friends, or would this sort its self out when it re-synced?
I seem to be having an issue with my "People" and Facebook for HTC Sense... The basics are that I have 260 friends on Facebook and HTC Sense has imported over 27000 records!!! So now whenever I try to send a text message it takes about 10 minutes for the contacts to load up!
I've tried removing the account but that just stops my "People" app from working at all.
I've gone in to People > view and then unselected the Facebook for HTC Sense which removes them in the "People" app but they still show when I use the "Search People" app or try to select a contact to send a text message!
I am at the end of my tether with this and if I can't find a solution I'm getting rid of the phone.
