    From that same page (Palm Pre FAQ: Synchronizing Contacts):

    One-way synchronization is available with Facebook. You can set up your Facebook account on your phone, and your Facebook contacts will be synchronized from the online account to your phone. Any changes you make to contacts in the online account will be synchronized to the account on your phone. However, you cannot make changes to contacts in this account on your phone, and information cannot be synchronized from the Contacts app on your phone to the online account.

    Almost forgot, inputting my password and selecting "sync now" did not pull in my recently added Facebook contacts.

    Looks like Palm found the bug. The following is from their FAQs and even sounds stupid.

    How does contact sync work with Facebook?
    Syncing DOES NOT update a Facebook.com online account with changes made to Facebook contacts on the Pre phone.
    Syncing DOES NOT update a Pre phone with changes made to contacts at Facebook.com. See the following procedure for a workaround for this.
    To update your phone with new information on Facebook.com:

    Delete the Facebook account from the phone. See Using Contacts, "Deleting an online account".
    Create a new Facebook account on the phone. See Using Contacts, "Adding an online account".
    Tap Sync Now. When the new Facebook account is finished syncing, all current Facebook contact information is added to Contacts. This may take a few minutes. Wait for the Facebook sync complete message at the bottom of the screen.
    Repeat this procedure whenever it is necessary to update Facebook contacts on your phone.

    thyat is disappointing, but the thing, it worked once for me. i added friends to facebook after the initial sync, and they came down.

    i hope this if fixed, cause it would be lame to have to do this all the time. not that i would.

    Strange. I added a friend today and it's on my phone already. Are you guys using wifi? Maybe that helps. Seems random at best after reading these comments....

    I'm really hoping they fix this within the 30 days trial period, I just think they're being short sighted in not aggressively addressing this. Facebook is becoming more and more viral and will soon become more and more a PIM for people as well as a place to social network, Palm has an opportunity to really capitalize on this but I think they're gonna drop the ball....what do you all think?

    You're not kidding about it sounding stupid.. That is the most ridiculous "solution" I've seen.. Especially since you cant delete Facebook contacts that have been imported in (as well as AIM). Also, deleting the account and adding it again requires that you re-link the accounts which is a royal pain.

    And while they say one thing in the top part of the FAQ, they contradict that statement later in the FAQ:

    One-way synchronization is available with Facebook. You can set up your Facebook account on your phone, and your Facebook contacts will be synchronized from the online account to your phone. Any changes you make to contacts in the online account will be synchronized to the account on your phone.

    I am also having this problem...It will update the new contacts if you delete your facebook account on your Pre and then re-input the account information. The big problem here is that when you do this, all of your linked contacts are lost...any help would be appreciated...

    It's a "FEATURE". Actually, all this means is they haven't worked out the bugs yet. Facebook will sync when they can make it work consistently with appropriate security.
