    Installed...everything looks and smells ok at the moment. I'm happy to report that uploading pics now results in a far less grainy picture on Facebook. 1.2 would seriously degrade the quality from the uploaded pics, and 1.5 is far better.

    Works fine on my Bold. The application does link your address book contacts to your FB friends, or at least most of them based on some matching method. There may be some FB friends that don't get matched to your phone book contacts for some reason, but you can manually link them. This creates a new field for your contacts with their "Facebook name." You can now send them a FB message or write on their wall from the address book menu.

    Now few things I find annoying:

    1. When you manually link an address book contact to a FB friend, for some reason it sends them a Phone Number Request systems notification. They will receive a notification that you want their phone number. It looks like something that you just type in as if you're sending it to them, but you're actually updating your profile with your phone number. In most cases, if you're linking address book contacts to FB friends, I'm sure you already have their phone numbers, but they may not have it in their FB profile. As you can see, this could be utterly embarassing.

    2. When you link an address book contact to a FB friend, it updated the company field in the address book according to the current company in their profile. I haven't checked thoroughly, but this raises a concern that the imported FB data could overwrite information I've already stored about that contact. So far, it looks like it didn't do that.

    That request is really annoying.
    I don't know why it would send a request to friends that already have a number stored on my phone already.

    Here's another mystery: When you refresh your address book contact based on FB, why do some friends' profile pictures not sync to your address books picture?

    And we have to remember, this is just a bridge to FB 2.0 later this year.

    yet again: When you choose to add a new contact to your address book from your FB friends, it only copies their name and FB name field. It doesn't transfer over the phone number even if they have it on their profile. It also won't let me copy and paste their phone number when I view it with the application, but it lets me highlight it.

    Works fine on my Bold but that auto phone number request is annoying. There are people I haven't talked to in years and now it looks like I want their phone number. On the bright side, maybe it'll induce more people to include their phone numbers on their profiles.

    Also annoying: From the app, you can call people who have their numbers on FB but there's no option to text message them. It'd also be nice if FB had a PIN field.

    Everyone's too excited for this....it still has the same crappy icons / interface as 1.2 had...with the exception of the "integration" it's the same old, email based software...

    Socialscope ftw once they add internal commenting like FB 1.5 added

    Hey
    i know've people have asked this question multiple times but its never been answered.

    I've downloaded it onto my 8900 and deleted the 1.2 version but the icon doesn't appear at all. i've tried multiple times of reinstalling and deleting but it stays gone. the only thing that appears is the facebook link which lets you download version 1.2.
    Anyone know what to do?

    Thx in advance

    The annoyance of sending friends a phone number request implies that you can do this from the regular website. Does anybody know if that is actually possible?

    Nice!!! It works perfectly. The reboot did take about 5-7 mins after installation. This is also on a bold .247.

    Seems to work for some and not for others. Maybe it depends on other apps that are running and not compatible. No one has answered my question so I'm guessing it's just a mistery.

    I've tried everything I can think off. I've checked permissions, deleted 1.2, re-installed 1.5, rebooted, pulled battery, nothing has worked.

    If I delete 1.2 I get no Facebook icon anywhere. If I don't delete 1.2 the Bold always runs version 1.2.

    It's stupid because it keeps requesting phone numbers when I already have the person's phone number... So redundant.
