hopefully this thread will be short and sweet. I'm sure most/some of us are experiencing connectivity issues with big red, coincidentally since that last update. but the facebook app has been a downright pain with the infamous "no connection, tap to retry" screen. even when I'm staring at a big "4Glte" with 3-4 bars, I will get this screen. is anyone else having this issue, and how can it be fixed. the market isn't stating that there's an update available, so what to do???
Yes, seems to happen all the time with various apps, but I notice it the most with Facebook and Foursquare. It doesn't seem like VZW is acknowledging that this is a nation-wide network issue. I just hope a new update is coming soon to fix it.
calling tech support is a joke, because they're oblivious. funny thing is, I can leave facebook, go right to youtube, and load up a video lickety split. so it's got to be an app issue, but who knows???
I've noticed this with Facebook as well. It typically happens to me if I'm using Facebook and the phone hands off to WiFi from 4G (or 3G) and vice versa. My easy fix (if you call it that) is to task kill the Facebook app and then restart the app.
My son has a Moto RAZR.....I asked if he was having 4G connection issues......he confirmed he was and wasn't happy!. Up to that point I thought "It must be my custom ROM...maybe I will unroot"....but since he confirmed it on his phone that ISN'T ROOTED...100% stock. I figured it was Big Red!.
According to my youngest son......we are experiencing solar flares the last couple of weeks....who knows if that is effecting it.
Facebook will do it as well as my GeoCache program.
Yep, this has been going on with my tbolt for about two solid months now. 4G blinking in and out like a flickering light bulb. we are paying the highest prices around, they need to get this crap fixed, and fast. however, even when I'm on WiFi, facebook does the same thing. either its the software, or my phone.
Here's what keeps happening to me. I go to FB, doesn't want to load and says there's no connection, even though I'm watching the data arrows blink on and off for 4G as other programs are using it in the back ground. Then I'll go to Flipboard, no problems. Then the browser, refuses to use the data connection. Then I'll get an update from Google Play, I go to DL the update, one app DL's fine, another refuses to use the data connection at all. During all of this I never lose 4G signal, and other apps can connect to the data stream with out any problems. TBH, I think the is some sort of permission bug in the soft ware from all the different versions of Android. Sometimes it works, sometimes it refuses. I noticed it after more and more of the apps started updating for ICS...
yea, the FB app is having all sorts of issues with being able to connect to FB. I've also noticed issues with foursquare and even google search as well. I thought about going into a vzw store and asking for a new sim card or flashing back to stock.
I dont know about anyone else but i`ve been having issues both with the app and the browser for facebook ever since the first update the tbolt got. I just force close it and restart it and use it till it acts up again. But i`ve gotten so tired of that routine that i turned off notifications for FB and only use my Desk top for FB now.
this morning the mobile app is crap, but going in via the browser works fine. for now. maybe facebook has TOO many people on it at once? somehow, I anticipate them using this as ONE of the excuses to charge us for facebook...."we can improve your experience, but it will take a minimal financial contribution to fix several connection issues". #waitforit
I havent updated FB in a very long time. Im on v 1.7.2 Every version reviews worse than the last. I stuck at the last one that still works. I have about 25 apps i havent updated. It seems when people try to take their apps up to the ICS level they cant keep them happy with the older unless they are very talented if at all. I occasionally get a connection issue but not often.
over the last week or so, I'm finding that the browser option, on 3G, is the lesser of 2 or 3 evils. it's a bit slower, but at least I can update and post things that way. of all the apps out there, I would think that Facebook would have their crap together, since it's used probably more than any 10 apps put together. I guess it is what it is.
