    Facebook App Picture conundrum

    Hello GN users!

    I'm having an issue with the Facebook app and any help is greatly appreciated.

    I try to select an image a friend posted on my profile and I continually get the error message that states "cannot retrieve photo, try again later"

    any tips on correcting this issue?


    Ps, not a problem with wifi or 3G

    Welcome to the Forums!

    I've had this issue in the past as well. I believe it's an issue with the App and like you said, not an issue with wifi or 3g. I uninstalled, then re-installed, then rebooted and it fixed it, however I believe I was one of the lucky ones. I searched around a bit for an answer and this method is hit or miss.

    I know if you go to the Facebook App site on Facebook there are a lot of people from many different phone with this issue as well.

    Good luck and let us know how it goes, or if you find another way to fix it.

    I use the app daily and that has occurred once. Hopefully this isn't happening often for you but it's just the app acting up.

    I've given up on the Facebook for Android and use 'Friendcaster' much better.

    So, the resolution i found to this issue was to simply make a bookmark for the facebook mobile site on my homescreen. This isn't too much of an inconvenience at the moment so i'm fine with it!

    Thanks for your help everyone, sorry for the super delayed response.
