Default Anyone's Facebook Contacts not syncing?

Please Login to Remove!

I've got Facebook 1.5 installed, and for the most part, it works great. But it's not syncing with my contacts like it's supposed to. It'll let me link the contacts manually, but it won't do it automatically! It was doing it a long time ago, but with a fresh OS install, it's not doing it correctly.

Any idea on why? I've toggled the options to do it and not do it, and that hasn't worked.

Well I know that much, but there was a problem like this before too. The friend finder has only worked properly like once.

I did another wipe. I'ma see if 1.6 comes out today as I've heard it would, and if it does, I'ma download that and start anew. Otherwise, I'ma just go with the 1.5 one more time :-\

That's the thing, it isn't just the ones without a phone number for me. I have to manually sync like all of em. It worked correctly for like a few weeks, and when I reinstalled the OS, it started messing up again :-\

Just thought I would bump this to see if anyone else had this going on...they seem to work decently when I manually connect them, but they don't automatically sync at all :-\

EDIT: Is there any way to manually sync them? Sort of the way the "Reconcile Now" function works for messages?

Sometimes when I sync a contact, it won't store their profile picture. Such a pain. When my friends change their picture, it also doesn't automatically change, and I have to sync it manually.

This fixed it for me...

Unchecked the Sync contacts box under options.
Cleared Cache.
Logged out.
Logged in.
Run Setup Wizard.
Checked the Contacts Box.
Save.

It added all my contacts/updated.

Did you save after unchecking the contacts and clearing the cache the first time? Or did you do it *exactly* as you described here?

Actually, just found something out: on FB, you can go to the suggested friends, and click on the Facebook for Blackberry. And that actually finds friends based on your phone book too, though I think you have to link them manually anyway

I'm having exactly the same problem as Ketchums: No automatic update of contacts, though Manual update is easy. Just go to Friends on the Facebook App (I have V1.7), then left click on Menu and click on either "Refresh Blackberry Contact" or "Connect to Blackberry Contact" and select the matching contact. CAUTION: Don't check the sync button if content protection is switched on as it will eliminate all your Blackberry contact email addresses that are common to Facebook.
