I think I may have your answer. I just looked in my apps drawer and there is a Facebook app there. I clicked on it. You have to agree to the usual terms and sign in there. I didn't go any further as I don't want Facebook syncing with my phone. But if you sign on there with that app I'll bet the me contact card comes alive.
Please post back here if you try that and it works I'd love to know.
I was having the same problem not seeing an edit button when editing my contact card. Pressing HOME > settings > people > my contact card > MENU brought up a menu where I could select edit. All other contacts had the option right on the screen.
Hope that helps you.
Lisa, I'm wondering if this is tied in any way to the use of a custom Rom, or differences in apps installed, or actively running, on the Hero? I have tried many ROMs and apps, and have noticed little differences (from stock), in how different functons of the Hero react with different Roms and in some cases, with different apps installed and in some cases, running or not running. Not that this is such a bad thing, but it could be the explaination for the discrepencies you mention.Same thing. Click on it to open or edit and it spins for ever. Never loads. But at least I'm not alone with this issue. The lucky ones it works fine on and then there are the unlucky ones. It used to work before I went to 2.1 and hasn't worked since........... Oh well.
