I re-added my Facebook app account to "Accounts and Sync" (in System Settings) but it won't activate sync. The button stays grey. Sync of overall phone is on. This is after a delete and reinstall of the App.

I have Huawei m931 running Android 4.0.4. Here is what I did:

  1. Reinstalled app on phone, after clearing cache+ data, signing out of chrome. (not sure correct procedure).
  2. New username/Email of my Facebook account is same as my primary Gmail/Chrome email address. screen shot of Accounts Sync in my phone

Of note is I have 2 gmail, and 1 Yahoo accounts on phone. Also, the phone's number is used in both gmail accounts for security alerts (don't know if is relevant)

Help!, am new at this

  • Please provide more details of the error. Did you remove the old account? Are you adding the new via email address or username? – Matthew Read Mar 24 '15 at 13:36
