    It looks like this is not a very common issue, and I couldn't find it metioned in TiPb forums, but Facebook for iPhone is not working for me properly.

    Hopefully when Facebook for iPhone 3.0 comes out these will no longer be an issue.

    1.) My wall loads the first time, but after I sleep my iPhone or close out the app and go back in, my wall is empty and load older posts. It also doesn't show any photos, which are on Facebook. I can access my wall from the notification tab, and everything loads, but when I go to my tab it gives me the same problem. I'll post a screen shot. If I logout then login, my wall will load again and work until the app is closed or the iPhone sleep button is pressed.

    2.) This issue is present with some friends as well. I cannot access their wall from the friends tab, but I am able to access them through the notifications tab.

    3.) I also have never been able to use the chat feature. I will post the screen shot that I get. I have also logged out of chat on FireFox, then when I go to chat in the iPhone app it says offline, I select go online and it gives me the error message again.

    4.) After I login the first time and close out the app or sleep the iPhone, I don't get my notifications refreshed. I have to logout and login to see the new notifications.

    5.) I have never been able to comment on a photo from the Facebook for iPhone app.

    I have deleted the app from my iPhone and reloaded it with a sync with iTunes, as well as, deleting the app and reloading it with the iPhone many times.

    I have deleted all my updates and posts I made with my iPhone, and it still all the above problems still exist.

    I also had a friend login, on my iPhone, with her account and everything worked properly for her so I know it's not a hardware issue with my iPhone.

    Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Jon

    It sounds as if the problem is on your face book. Have logged on through a computer to see if the issue still exists?

    I've tried downloading from the AppStore, syncing with iTunes, and from the link in Facebook; all had the same problems. Thanks though.

    The web page works fine, I've been looking for the mystery setting or post that's possibly causing the conflict between the two.

    I have found a great work around for the chat issue: BeeJive!!! Facebook chat with push.

    I'm not sure I'm going to figure it out, I've tried pretty much everything I can think off.

    I was thinking maybe it was an incompatibility issue with creating a Facebook app after the new Facebook, I just created my page on Saturday. I imagine if this was the case though, there would be a lot more people with the same issues.

    Facebook seems to work very well for my phone? Are you jailbroken? There has to be a reason it isn't working on your phone.

    I too believe the FB app is buggy. Sometimes it works fine, sometimes it doesn't load information from a specific page.

    So far 4 out of 5 respondents in this thread say the FB app is buggy for them... I do not think it's a coincidence.

    Anyone know why Facebook.com is not working? Anyone know of any site maintenance? Not connecting to server...

    The Facebook app is buggy for me as well. Although I sometimes see screens not load properly or completely, the biggest nuisance for me is the endless amount of double posts on the News tab. I'll read a post or two, scroll down to read more, and the first posts I read start to repeat themselves.

    I don't have any issues with the Facebook site; only the Facebook app on the iPhone.

    Yeah I'm having trouble with my inbox, when I try to send a message it says it's 'down'. I'm experiencing this on the website. Haven't tried to send message in the inbox through the app yet.

    Jailbreaking has nothing to do with whether or not the facebook ap works. It has been buggy since day one. The 3.0 update should remedy these issues and make for a better experience.

    Facebook and Twitter are both currently battling DOS attacks according to cnet. Twitter is getting hit the hardest. Facebook is just slow for me.

    I have tried it both with and without jailbreak. I thought that might be a problem too, but it didn't work either way. The really weird thing is that I had my friend login with my iPhone and it worked for her. I'm still searching posts and forums for answers but I'm through playing with Facebook trying to find the conflict.

    Just curious ~ of all the people who are having problems, when did you setup your Facebook page? I set mine up a week ago, I'm wondering if that has something to do with it.

    THe next version is coming soon, hopefully it fixes these issues. I hate this version as well and 3.0 seems to have made it worse for me.

    ^^^^^don't go all "protective parent" on me. It was a simple and valid question. Your precious jailbaby is safe!

    @ the OP. I put facebook app on my ( nonjailbroken) phone over a month and a half ago. I hope you find your solution.

    I don't think it's the app because my app worked for my friend's account, it just doesn't like mine for some reason. I just wish Facebook would acknowledge the issue and at least say there isn't anything they can do about it.

    It was a simple question but not valid. You are not jailbroken. You don't know, so don't make an uneducated comment.
