From pattern locks to the controversial face unlock, there are a number of different ways you can secure your Android phone's lockscreen. Some methods are clearly more secure than others, but it comes down to user preference at the end of the day. So, which lockscreen security type do you prefer and why?
HTC Sense Not Playing Nice with Facebook
If you’re an Android device owner and run HTC Sense on your device, then you may have been experiencing issues over the last 4-5 days with HTC Sense Facebook Sync where you get the message “This service is currently unavailable. Do you want to try again?” However, you’ll probably have no problem logging into Facebook for Android.
There have been multiple threads and posts regarding this issue and according to members, HTC is aware of this issue and is currently tracking it. As of right now, theres no solution, although the general consensus is that HTC hopes to have a fix out by the end of this coming weekend.
Many members have tried to find a solution to this themselves, and some have resorted to flashing to a non-Sense ROM! One suggested fix, which appears to work for a few select members is the one posted by XDA member vecc. The dev suggests entering a city under your profile data using your web account. Whether this appears to be a coincidence or not, you can find out for yourselves!
To read about the fix for yourselves, take a look at the original post or take a look around your Android device forum to join in the discussions.
Thanks for the tip, Noonski.
