    Anybody else having issues with Facebook for Sense?

    I just noticed yesterday that my contacts were no longer syncing with Facebook. In an attempt to fix it, I deleted it from accounts and then re-added it, and not only did that not solve the problem, I lost ALL my contact pictures because they were all synced with Facebook. I did some googling and found that this is a widespread issue that started happening 3-4 days ago.

    Anyone else having this issue?

    Have not seen this issue. I did notice once that I added a friend to Facebook and they didn't show up on the phone until I did a manual resync (Menu -> Settings -> Accounts and Sync -> Facebook for HTC Sense -> Sync Now.)

    But then it may have been inside my 2 hour sync setting.
    I gave my iPhone to my 5 year old and got an EVO.

    Rico, I suspect something else going on in your case. This was a known issue with Facebook itself and was fixed over a week ago. Are you sure that you have your phone properly set up? Try removing the FB account from your phone, then update your employer info on actual facebook, then set up the account on your phone again. It's a workaround that worked for me when I was having issues.

    I still am having sync issues. It seems the updates come through, but if someone changes their profile picture, I have to refresh several times before that will update. It's not a big deal, but I also don't see the little green update numbers on my home page widget (Favorites) any more.

    Hmm... then maybe I'm wrong about the problem being cleared up. I'm no longer having any issues with it but I don't use any of the widgets that are tied to FB, I only use the sync for the pictures and they're working fine for me. Try doing what I suggested, deleting the account from your phone, changing your employment info on the actual site and then re-adding the account back into your Evo. That little workaround worked for a lot of people including myself, it basically forces it to sync.
