How to open my cellphone in faebook

What you need to do is contact your local service provider (e.g mine was Mobilicity) and then tell them that you're having trouble receiving a confirmation code from Facebook. They should be able to fix the problem, because I received my confirmation code right after.

(By the way, you can only use your cell phone number once, because you're only supposed to have one account, according to Facebook)

You could also use the calling option, and have Facebook call you to send you the verification code.

DON'T use your home phone number for these options, because if you need to verify your account again, they will automatically text you with the number you gave them and tell you to type in the confirmation code
Step 1Go online to Facebook's Mobile page.
Step 2Type your email address and Facebook password into the corresponding text-fields and click "Login" to sign-in to your Facebook account.
Step 3Scroll down and click "Text a link to my phone." It may take up to five minutes to receive the text message from Facebook.
Step 4Type your Boost Mobile phone number into the text-field and click "Text link to my phone."
Step 5Open the SMS application on your Boost Mobile phone and open the text message sent to you by Facebook. Click the link provided in the text message. This link automatically directs your phone to download the Facebook application. Access the new application by going to your main apps menu and selecting the Facebook icon.
Get Facebook Mobile on Boost Standard Cellular Handset Step 1Go online to Facebook's Mobile download page.
Step 2Type your email address and password into the corresponding text-fields and click "Login" to sign-in to your Facebook account.
Step 3Scroll down and click "Sign Up for Facebook Text Messages."
Step 4Select "Boost Mobile" from the drop-down menu and click "Next."
Step 5Activate your Boost cellular handset, open your SMS application and select the option to create a new SMS.
Step 6Address the SMS to "32665" and type "F" in the message field. Click "Send." Wait a couple of minutes for a reply. The reply contains a confirmation code.
Step 7Type the confirmation code into text-field and click "Confirm."
Step 8Configure your Facebook Mobile settings according to your preferences. For instance, if you want to update your Facebook status with text messages, click the "ON" button bellow "Texts are." If you want to receive text messages of certain friends' status updates, type their name in the text-field beside "Whose status updates should go to my phone." Once you are finished, click "Save Preferences."
Step 9Update your status by typing it into a new text-message and addressing it to "32665."

I have HTC Wildefire, when I receive an sms, I get only phone number in international format but no name of contact. knowing that the contact is saved in my address book.

HI there!
This is a pretty common issue. The trick is to save the numbers in your contact list in the format you receive the texts in, for example here in canada the format would be 1-xxx-xxx-xxxx and this would show up on the phone as +14038486756. Either save the number from your text messages OR change the ones in your contact list and you should be set!

Is there any way to make the persons name appear for a text

It should be as simple as adding their name and number to the address book on the phone.

Make sure to list the number under the Mobile Phone line.

While in the address book, there is usually a line that says "New Entry" or "Add number" etc...(without the type of phone I cant get specific).

Another method is to into the text message itself and do an options click (again without the phone cant be specific) and there should be an option to add the number to the address book.

When i recieve a text message it show the number and not the name of sender

this is because you have a duplicate contact name in your phone book.. if you have different contact name in your phone book with same number.. only the number will show up...

Can't receive/make calls and text on i68/i9

First remark: This phone is not 3G compatible !!! the name is i9+ 3G but it's only the name !!! Second: Go to settings , Dual SIM settings , and check that you're not in 'flight mode' (that's when the 2 X appear top left) and change it to either one of the 3 other options (Dual sim open, only sim1 open, only sim2 open). Third: The name will appear when the person is in your address book.
