HTC Droid Eris :: Syncing Facebook For HTC Vs Plain Facebook And Memory

May 22, 2010

Has anyone figured out the difference between syncing Facebook for HTC Sense in the account syncing section vs. plain Facebook? I am trying to figure out if the one I'm using (Facebok for HTC Sense) is using up too much memory.

My phone memory is around 33% whereas my husband's memory is 64%! He has very few contacts and I'm wondering if the syncing with Facebook is taking up all my phone memory (vs SD Card memory which is fine).

Sprint HTC Hero :: Menu - Settings - Social Network - Facebook - Vs Facebook App

Feb 28, 2010

On my phone I have the Facebook app downloaded from the market. I also noticed that the phone comes bookmarked with Facebook.

So here is my question, under Menu>Settings>Social Network> Facebook appears there. I have that set to update every 12 hours.

HOWEVER, my actual Facebook App is set to update every 2 hours.

So... does the settings under Menu>Settings>Social Network>Facebook control my facebook app or just the bookmark that comes pre-installed on the phone?

I am trying to save battery life, and I noticed that the settings under Menu>Settings>Social Network>Facebook were set to update every hour, but I had the settings under the downloaded app to update every two hours. My goal is to have only one facebook medium updating so I don't drain battery life!

HTC EVO 4G : Accounts Sync / Facebook Not Working

Jun 23, 2010

I would love some help with this if anyone can figure out what's going on. I have the FB for Android app installed. I am rooted with Bugless Beast. I was trying to add FB as a sync account through settings-->accounts & sync, but when I click add account-->FB, nothing happens. Then I logged out of the FB app, and my attempt to add a sync account would bring me to the login screen. I can log in, but the account doesn't show up in my list of sync accounts. And I'm back to nothing happening when I do add account-->FB. When I go to a contact, in the sync and gallery screens both say to log in to FB to link. In the sync screen, nothing happens when I tap. In the gallery screen, it pulls up a loading screen that stays up indefinitely. I uninstalled and reinstalled the FB app, and that made no difference. Right now, I'm syncing my pictures using SyncMyPix, but I would like full integration of my contacts and FB friends. I'd appreciate any help getting this to work.

HTC Eris :: Won't Sync Google / Facebook Or Twitter Accounts

Nov 21, 2010

My Eris won't sync my Google, Facebook, or Twitter accounts. It last did so last Monday, 11/15. I have had emails, messages, tweets, etc. sent to me, but they never sync to my phone, I have to go online to get my Gmail (refreshing within the app does nothing), but refreshing manually from the Facebook and Twitter apps does work. Going into Settings > Accounts & Sync > Sync Now does nothing, and all of the settings here are correct.I've tried rebooting and pulling the battery, but it still does it. Haven't installed anything new recently, since my internal storage is full.

General :: Multiple Facebook Accounts With Sync Support

Apr 3, 2013

one can have multiple twitter, email etc. accounts on Android (running 4.1.2 on a Galaxy Note), but only one Facebook account. However, I have two of them and I need *both* their contacts sync'd to the contacts database (one is my "private" profile for close friends, the other is for work colleagues etc). Also, the built-in Facebook authentication has the same problem as the contact sync - I don't want to run games like Real Racing under my "public" FB profile.

Any way to make two FB profiles on one device? Maybe with something like a "virtualization"?

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 :: Online Service Accounts - No Facebook

Sep 28, 2010

i've been on my Xperia X10 for a few weeks now, I feel like i manage the phone and Android pretty well, but there is still one thing that I can't figure out. All the SE online help, the phone manual, phone electronic manual, even my phone carrier, all say that i can link my phone to facebook in my Online Service Accounts....Strange thing is that I do not have facebook listed there.

I have :
Google
Sony Ericsson Sync
Twitter
Picasa

Ironicly i'm interested only in facebook. I've been searching this "bug", if that's what it is, for a while now, and I have not found anywhere mensioning anything of facebook not beeing listed there. Maybe I've done a poor search, but now I'm curious to see if anybody on this SE forum might know why facebook might not be listed in the Online Service Accounts.

Samsung Vibrant : Double Facebook Accounts In Contacts Driving Me Insane

Aug 11, 2010

Facebook syncing to contacts was working great until tonight and it is driving me insane.I have two of the same facebook accounts synced.I'm sorry if this is confusing but basically, in Settings>>Accounts and sync: I have two facebook accounts synced but they are the same account.However, I do notice that the two icons are ever so slightly different.I am wondering if this is somehow syncing my facebook account through the app as well as through android.The reason why this is driving me nuts is because the accounts link to the contacts and for several contacts I have two facebook profiles synced, in addition to the phone contact, and gmail contact.This is really bugging the OCD-ness in me. Also when I search a contact to call or text for example, it might show one of their home numbers as "mobile" since it doesn't really know what type of number their facebook number(s) are.This problem started today when I shared my first picture through my phone onto facebook. I found it weird that it asked me to sign in again since I thought I had already done so through the app 'm sorry for such a long post, but I am wondering what I should do.Does this mean I should get rid of the facebook app?

HTC Hero :: Syncing People With Facebook

Oct 27, 2009

I've had my HTC Hero for a couple of months and finally think I've got to grips with the majority of its features. One of the things I really liked when I originally set it up was the fact that my contacts in People would sync up with anyone it recognised as having a facebook account and therefore provided their profile picture and birthday info etc. However, a couple of weeks ago all these pictures suddenly disappeared and I've no idea why - I can still get onto facebook fine and my contacts all seem as they were except they're all pictureless and it's really starting to annoy me. Has anyone else experienced this or is there any setting I'm missing or something I've done wrong??

On a completely unrelated note (although I may well post this seperately), I've recenly downloaded Handcent SMS from the market as I'd read that this was a good alternative to the original messaging application, but I don't know how to set this as my default SMS app and to get rid of the original off my home screen.

HTC EVO 4G :: Linking Facebook To Contacts - Not Syncing At All

Jul 26, 2010

I had to get a new EVO because my charging port failed on my first one. When I got the new EVO, I entered my gmail account & all my contacts came back down to the phone. I have re-installed all my programs and Facebook is working. I CAN NOT get my facebook to sync up with my contacts. I go into people, select the link icon, click Link to Facebook and it does nothing. I also went into Menu-Settings-Accounts & Sync and clicked Sync All (my facebook and gmail address are in there)--it runs the sync and I still get nothing. I pulled the battery, I updated my PRL & profile but it won't work. I even uninstalled Facebook, reinstalled it and it still won't work. Does anyone here have any ideas on how I get my FB contacts to sync up with my contacts?

HTC : Desire Facebook Syncing Not Working

Jul 22, 2010

ok so my contacts WERE synced to my facebook and it gave me their number name birthday etc etc etc..

I wanted to update the contact image as i know a few have changed and to do this was told remove the account and then re add it after a short break and it will sync..

well i did that and it has now left me with "facebook friends (0)" which is complete balls... if i use the facebook phonebook folder on the home screen it shows everyone that was on my contacts..

when i hit people and online directory and menu refresh it does nothing.. and sometimes comes back with connection error.. or nothing at all.

i thought it was a problem with phone so i backed everything up and decided factory reset to see if this would fix (plus i needed to free all the crap apps off) still nothing.

is this a problem with sync today or something ? anyone else having similar problems?

HTC EVO 4G :: Turn Off Alarm - Syncing Facebook Contacts?

Jun 4, 2010

Does the phone lag while trying to make a call? Does the standard alarm work (I used Alarmed & my regular alarm when I'm really tired and I stagger the alarms so that at least 1 will wake me up with stock alarm, i can't turn it off without shutting off the phone). Is Facebook contacts synced with contacts again, or is like the 1.5 Hero. Does it sync ALL your google contacts (2.1 Hero) or does it allow you to choose which group to sync (1.5 Hero). Those are my issues with the Hero since the upgrade, if these problems are not on the EVO, then to the EVO I go.

HTC Hero :: Selected Contacts Not Syncing With Facebook / Fix It?

Sep 6, 2009

I recently purchased an HTC Hero on Orange in the UK, and I'm loving it. Eagerly awaiting the firmware upgrade to smooth out the slight lag.

I was wondering if anyone had the following issue though. I've done a search and couldn't find anything quite the same.

I have a problem with selected contacts in People not syncing with facebook. The profile picture does not appear. Under Updates and events it either says "No updates or events" or "Updating". For the person's Albums tab it also says "No albums" under Facebook.

It is always the same contacts - I think just 4 out of about 30. It's been the same for a few days now. Obviously these are people I know have profile pictures and photo albums!

I have tried:
Turning the phone off and on.
Disconnecting and reconnecting to facebook in the settings.
De-linking and then re-linking the contact to their facebook profile.
Deleting and then re-adding the contact and then linking the new contact entry with the facebook profile.

HTC Droid Eris :: Facebook Contacts Auto-syncing

May 2, 2010

I can't stand the fact that the Facebook app automatically adds my Facebook friends to my contact list, but they don't show up when I open the People icon, only when I'm choosing the contacts to send or forward a text to.I want to be able to sync the contacts I have with their Facebook profile, but I don't want Facebook automatically adding contacts to my phone.And I can't just diasble auto-sync because there are programs that apparently need it running. The only other option I can think of is to completely remove Facebook from my phone and that's bullsh*t.I know it sounds confusing, but does anyone have any ideas on how to get around this? It woulddn't be such a problem, but now when I go to pick my contacts to forwards to, I have hundreds of contacts instead of the 95 or so I had before.

HTC Desire :: Data Usage For Syncing (Google / Facebook)

Jun 25, 2010

I've used the search and read all thread that include "data" in the post's title. Lots of it was helpful, yet I have a few questions. This morning as a test to see how much data my phone uses just for syncing and any kind of background data, I turned on the network data and syncing.
after 20 mins it was up to 1.5mb (according to my data counter widget). I downloaded the Spare Parts app which shows me what instances use how much data; very useful. The 1.5mb I'm stating here already exclude RSS updates and a few web pages I loaded this morning. This 1.5mb is ONLY the syncing stuff. So my question is: Why and how can it be so much data? I use gmail and google calendar and contacts, and have some 400+ friends of Facebook (FB). Calendar and FB were already synced yesterday before I went to bed. How can another sync use so much data? It wasn't my email (Gmail) as there weren't many this morning.

The calendar sync apprently took up 468kb, and a process called "UID 10027" which i presume is FB? used 555kb. I'm really puzzled by these numbers. as google sync happens frequently throughout the day unless I activate it, usually i get up to 15mb a day without actually doing much (i.e. no browsing, no RSS feeds updates, no streaming). Why is the FB and Google sync taking up so much data? I downloaded FB for android, which replaced the FB for HTC application (so now I have inbox, and not the stupid "Take a Picture" in the app thank god) which doesn't even use the sync from the account settings but has its own update cycle which I had turned to 'manual'. Ialready switched off the "use WiFi for location" because I heard google maps otherwise constantly searches in the background

HTC Wildfire :: Contacts Number Changed When Syncing With Facebook

Sep 21, 2010

This is one of the first problems I encountered when I used HTC Sense to Sync my contacts with facebook. This is what it was like before I synced with facebook.

E.g.
Georgia Bowman
Call mobile.
07xxxxxxxxx
Send message.
07xxxxxxxxx
After Syncing, there DP is up, aswell as email address etc. It also changed the number to
44xxxxxxxxxx

I've found a solution. Go to a contact with the 44xxxxxxxxxx number. Ensure the contact is still linked to facebook
Menu > Edit
This brings up the Edit screen
Scroll down, Then add.
On the Drop down, select Phone > Work
Now, providing you only had one number for that person, you should have two fields. One called Mobile with their number this format 07xxxxxxxxx. (If its in the +44xxxxxxxxx format, then change it to the 07xxxxxxxxx format)
Press on the top field (the original one), then copy all.
Select the field called work, then press on the field, hold, and paste.
Now press Menu > Save.
Now press and HOLD the field called Call work, and set this as your primary number.
Once primary number is on the field called call work, you can now go to Menu > Edit.
Now delete the Field labeled Mobile
Go to the field called work, then change the label to Mobile.
Menu > Save.

This will now stay as your contacts primary number.
E.g.
Georgia Bowman
Call mobile.
07xxxxxxxxx
Send message.
07xxxxxxxxx
Instead of having 44xxxxxxxxx
