I think you need to re-set up Facebook on first set.

Hi. I just seen your question about the triangle and the exclamation mark and your problem authorizing the f button. Inoticed that although you posted this quite a while ago now, so maybe you have got this sorted out by now. I too had this problem this was why I was looking for an answer! I just tried messing about with my phone ( I too have the HTC cha cha) and in the end all I did was hold down the f button and the triangle with the exclamation mark in disappeared and everything works as normal now! You should get a screen after pressing the f button that lets you post to your facebook wall. Hope this helps.

I have managed to get rid of the "authorize HTC chacha to use f button" triangle... B)

It appeared yesterday for no reason...and it wouldn't connect to the fb page / I couldn't clear it...and then it magically disappeared...but my display got all messed up...apps covering eachother and stuff like that...if I wanted to move the unwanted apps, then HTC sense crashed and the phone reset happened...so then I cleared HTC Sense data...I wasn't even aware I had 2 HTC Sense-s (2 different versions)...I cleared data of both of them (Menu - remove app - all apps - HTC Sense - clear data) and managed to fix the display problem, but the annoying triangle was back...
so then i cleared data of the Facebook for HTC Sense (MENU - REMOVE APP - ALL APPS - FACEBOOK FOR HTC SENSE - CLEAR DATA) and the triangle was gone... Now I wonder for how long...

girl...and no...it magically disappeared only the first time...the second time it took me quite a while to remember to clear data of all FB related apps..

or maybe it was the combination of all the things I did (also described in the previous post):
- clear HTC Sense data twice (2 different versions): Menu - remove app - all apps - HTC Sense - clear data
- clear data of the Facebook for HTC Sense: MENU - REMOVE APP - ALL APPS - FACEBOOK FOR HTC SENSE - CLEAR DATA
- and clear data of all other FB apps

did you try all of it? (and memorize the previous desktop settings (wallpaper & apps) because clearing data of htc sense will reset it..)

Ok thk but there are few stuff that went wrong first of all i dont have two htc sense versions so i just cleard the data for the one i have and then did all the steps (ps did it before) the trinagle was gone but what now !!! No more f button ?? After doing this i pressed my f button to find the triangle. Coming back and the mobile asking me to login to my facebook acc so i loggeed in through the screen the mobile provided and then it redirected me to an invalid website again (ps i realyy want to use the main feature of my phone wich is the f button) but thk anyway

Oh...sorry...I thought since it's impossible to use / to get it to work, you just wanted to get rid of the notification triangle...
ok i found a solution for the f button problem thought of sharing it with you ;) simply chek ur facebook app (the one preinstalled on your chacha) if it is the old version simply update it and voilaa here you go the triangle will go and you will be able to use the f button again hope it helps :)

I see I'm not the only one having this problem with the chacha. I have recently changed my fb password and the f button is not working. I've done it several times in the past and it used to work after authorizing it and logging into the fb app. I dont know why this time isnt working. I've cleared all data in both fb apps, I've updated the system and also the fb app and it still isnt working . The page starts loading to authorize the f button but it doesnt work. I've tried everything. Any other suggestion?

I've also realized that the fb chat app isnt working neither, I have also cleared alll data for this app and tried to log in but it doesnt work. I also logged out and in to htc sense but this also didnt help.

Im having the exact problem with my chacha i cant authorize the facebook chacha because it keeps directing me to a web address that is not available anymore so i cant use the f button as well as the fb chat apps. I dont know what to do. If you have configured how to do this pls share info id gladly appreciate it. Pls do thanks.

I resolved this issue just today . Now read thoroughly. . In order for you not to be redirected in that invalid web address. you have to update the facebook android that you have in your htc chacha in order to do that go to play store and try to look for facebook and then itll show the the update button after updating it try to press the f button it will function properly no invalid web adress anymore it will authorize your facebook just fine . :) hope this help.
