    For some reason, facebook chat in messages won't work for me at all. It doesn't show anybody as being online, and i don't get any chat messages delivered to the phone. Any ideas?

    Sometimes it's easy to overlook your status littlesteelo16, have you turned yourself to be available online ?

    Messaging / Online / Status / Available ?

    A bit obvious I know so apologies if it's not that.

    Also check facebook chat is turned on. (Messaging / Online /... / Settings / Facebook Chat / On)

    Only other thing I can think of now littlesteelo16 is...

    Settings / email & accounts / Long Hold Facebook / Syncronise

    Not sure what else to suggest.

    Is everthing linked in your contacts section with Facebook at windowsphone.com ?

    Make sure battery saver is OFF. Chat features won't work if your battery saver is on.

    I find it difficult to sign in to fb chat. Once signed it it works great, but signing in is such an issue I've reinstalled im+.

    Everything is linked fine, synchronized Facebook, rebooted, still nothing. It just says 'Checking who's online', with 'Connecting...' and the loading squares going along at the top, and then it jumps to 'No one is online', when there are when I look on the site. I'll try again in the morning.

    Did you link your live and fb? This is done via LIVE.COM

    Maybe remove your connection to FB on your Live account (live.com) and then re-add it, making sure it gets proper authorization to FB in the process? Then go back and link it on your phone again.

    I know fb chat is integrated into the messaging app. What I'm saying is signing into chat via the messaging app is very inconsistent so I use im+ as a backup for those times the integrated chat doesn't work for me.

    Thats funny, actually I find it opposite. I got IM+ for backup just incase my friends on iPhone or Androids cant stay connect on facebook because once they closed the app on their phone, FB chat disapeared on my end.

    Im suffering the same issue!

    I dont know whats happening. My facebook chat was working great for like 3 months until yesterday at like 8 pm, it was weird but i think it has some relation with the end of MSN and the union with Skype because the tile "ME" dissapeared.

    Then the chat has been unstable cuz i can see on my phone people of FB chat just for 3 seconds and then they dissapear. I even have received some messages from facebook chat but just 1 comment of like 5 for example.

    I see it tries to fix but it doesnt. I tried deleting my FB account from my phone, then i deleted "microsoft" and "facebook for WP" on the app store on facebook, then i re-added them and i thought it was fixed but no, still the same, contacts are there for like 4 seconds and then they are gone.

    I got nokia lumia 800. If some1 know how to fix i would appreciate...

    Dear all, I tried connect Facebook account to my windows phone with no luck, then tried connecting Facebook to my outlook chat directly through HTTP and it didn't work also, then i realized that the problem isn't belong to windows phone.
    After that I tried to create another Facebook account and connect it to outlook chat through HTTP and it did succeeded and it worked normally through window phone as well without any issue.
    So after all that I think the problem belong to our Facebook account, it's really hard to deactivate it and create another Facebook account, so i decided to wait until some one find a solution :(
