    Hi, I have a normal facebook account online with all of my friends on it. The other day I typed in 'facebook mobile' - to set up a way of using it on the go -and it said to enter my phone number and password - so I entered my mobile number and then the password for my FB account. Then I verified my mobile account by text.

    Anyway, I logged in on my laptop (because my phone wouldn't let me access facebook), to FB mobile and it asked me for a profile pic and to start adding friends - there is no info on my mobile account that is on my normal account. Have I gone and set up a brand new account?!

    Also, I can't even actually access FB mobile through my phone (it's not a smart phone) which I didn't realize when I set it up online.

    So basically: have I set up a new FB account by accident?
    If my phone isn't a smart phone or run java can I not access FB at all?

    Thanks

    Sounds like you created a new account, especially as it wants a profile picture etc. Without a smart phone, I think all you can do is use Facebook Texts.
