They both suck

Obviously AT&T sucks for having such a wacky network.

But Facebook has absolutely no respect for users, and this isn't the only case. Give us your email password! Allow this "application" to access all of your data without knowing what it does! We're sharing all of your info by default, unless you figure out our weird multi-level privacy settings! And to hell with encryption!
TMO, VZW, Spint all has had network errors as well, and the point is?? Crap happens, get over it. And it goes for all the carriers, stuff like this happens.

at&t still screwing up at every turn.

a company of this size and with this much clout in ip/internet should not have these types of problems. i guess it just goes to show what type of company it is under ralph de la vega. ignorant. randall needs to get rid of him and get a real ceo in there.

Facebook should be using HTTPS, not HTTP + cookies .. bad

AT&T's screw up shows weak security used in Facebooks applet. Using basic cookies as a tracking means, and no SSL is a recipe for security breach.
Whats funny tho is that a few months ago this problem wasnt carrier specific. People on other providers were also experiencing this issue. I dont think its fair to lay blame solely on AT&T. AT&T just provides the network to access facebook.

now that is simply awesome

id have so much fun with that
You still can! Facebook uses direct link with cached log in information. Basically get a link to Facebook sent to an email that you have access too, click the link and bam your now logged in.
