Facebook photo uploading error

I've searched the forums but have found no solution to my issue.

Whenever I go to gallery and click on a photo to "Share" and click facebook I immediately receive an error "Upload, An error had occurred while saving the photo" anyone have any suggestions?

I tried rebooting among other things... I love the phone so far though just want to upload pics to facebook now :)

Have you tried uploading images over WiFi to see if you get the same result? :)

Yes, I get the same result if I'm connected to Wifi :(

I figured out one thing...

You have to go to the facebook regular site and click on settings - Mobile - Register for Facebook text. Then you can choose your carrier and get setup!

I'm still having the upload error though :(

Ok, got it!

The pic i was uploading was to large but it never game me any kind of feed back as to what was wrong with the photo. I was able to upload another photo to FB.

why would the official facebook app take pictures which are too large for its own website?

Facebook is flakey, it has nothing to do with registering a carrier or wifi or not, sometimes it just doesn't work. I had it happen last night, tried to upload several times ad it would error out. Then an hour later tried again and the same picture went.
