    But if it's not possible to use the app w/o it automatically syncing all of my Facebook contacts, I don't want to go near it...
    Every Facebook thread has people with this same problem (myself included). So far no one has been able to offer any solutions that work If I figure anything out I'll make a thread about it. Still tinkering. My wife's phone worked no problems. I don't have any patches or anything.

    Try going to the preferences of the Facebook app and update your username and password.

    just wondering why everybody hates the fb contact sync? With universal search why do you ever need to even open the contacts app? Just wondering.

    I know you're trying to help but this is the major issue here. This doesn't work.

    I dont want my facebook contacts on my phone. If I have one "Anthony" in my Palm contacts and I have 300 facebook friends, of which I have 7 Anthony's, now I do a universal search and have 8 results. Just an annoyance. I dont need the extra 200 contacts that facebook is trying to sync, I am happy with the one's I want from gmail.

    Yes...I did a partial reset and this solved the problem for me. A little time consuming but it works.

    it's kinda funny that my name just so happens to be anthony...lol. But you can do a search by last name or initials to limit results...i just thinks the pros of having the pictures, getting info like bdays and emails for people I don't already have and having them link to existing google contacts for easy transfer is worth the extra contacts that I will never see because I will never actually scroll through the contacts list. The contacts icon is actually tucked away at the bottom of my last launcher page so I never have to see it =)

    Nice update to the app! Had the original, deleted it, removed all the synced contacts when it did. Reinstalled the new one, I was already signed in (weird!), and my contacts were NOT re-synced! Perfect! Hate most the people I'm friends with on Facebook anyway.

    Phone gets better every day. G/F's iPhone still wins in some categories, but we're getting there...if the apps would just load faster...

    I definitely see your point, I guess it is just a matter of preference. I never actually knew you could search by initials though, thanks for that one.

    I enjoy the update and its additions. I t must be me getting older but the font size in the update now looks even smaller. A nice addition would to be able to increase the font size.

    NEW FB APP QUESTION: Went into a friends profile pic and as long as they had a profile pic folder I could see the photos. I wanted to take that for my contact list and when I opened the photo..there are Pre Icons on the bottom for messaging and such. It seems they are grayed out and I cannot take the profile pic. Upload is there but the email account is grayed out too. Is this normal that you can't "borrow profile pics"? Any solutions?

    Comments sent using the app now have a small, orange Palm logo next to the "via Facebook for Palm" instead of a generic phone image. Nice. Take that iPhone.

    update: i'm still disappointed. no notifications, no video support whatsoever, can't delete items in the inbox, can't undo posts. Its better than nothing i suppose...
    you can get facebook chat running PERFECT thru the current messaging app with a patch here on the forums. I personally run FB thru Jabber, and had to simply link the numbers that show up as a persons name with their palm profile account. Synergy is simply whats holding Palm so high in my book.

    Attention to all those who can't sign in:
    I called palm today and after a long conversation I learned two things:
    * First, when you call, ask to speak with a technical specialist first thing.
    * Second, you have to reset your apps to get the facebook app to work if you can't sign in. They suggest reset, then reinstall the app, then erase and reinstall apps. It took an hour, then I had to reinstall all of my homebrew apps, but it worked. Hope this helps.

    Can you explain this further? How do you reset your apps? And what's the difference between resetting apps and deleting them? It sounds like you're saying you have to do both?
