    Whenever I connect to my home WiFi (don't have a data plan) and try to connect to Facebook chat using the Messaging app 90% of the time, it gives me a notification of "Can't connect". This used to work just fine usually, but recently its been lacking successful connections. Does anybody have this issue as well? I absolutely love this method of Facebook chat, but it's no use if it doesn't work.

    Do you have it in Airplane mode with WiFi enabled? I do not think it likes that...

    Same with Battery Saver.

    Flipping the data switch on and off seemed to dl the trick. Do you keep your data connection on during the whole day?

    Yes, I keep it on. I can not get regular texts from others if I turn it off...and periodically when walking around the office I'll occasionally get a signal. Basically it isn't worth the hassle of flipping it back and forth. Maybe if I could do it with NFC tags but WP8 has that tied down waaayyy too much to make it practical currently.

    I assumed you had your data flipped off since you didn't have a SIM, that was why I asked about the Airplane mode.

    Oh no, I have a SIM card, but I just don't have a data plan. Like I can text and call, but not use the internet using 4G/3G. But I can use WiFi.

    The last update pretty much coincides with my chat issue starting up. Never had a problem before, now suddenly only get the initial incoming message, but once I reply...that's it. No new messages come through.

    My chats are all off since a few hours ago (no messenger, whatsapp, facebook). Internet and all data apps work just fine, except chat. :(

    Hit the "status" button to see are you online, invisible, etc. Looks like a person once you're in the messaging app.

    Has anyone report the bug regarding the messaging FB chat.
    When the friend is on mobile device you can't see his/her messages inside for some reason. You have to open FB application.
