Cant Login Samsung Gear VR

Level 3

Looked at a bunch of other posts and cant solve this issue. My headset was working fine until today where i was forced to get a using a meta account. Since then all i get is a "Facebook Session Expired" error. I've uninstalled Facebook and Oculus apps and reinstalled, no change. I created a new FB account and Linked it but again when i open the Oculus Gear VR app i get that error, rebooted the device, no change, removed all FB accounts from my device (S9+) and added only the new account, no change. My old Oculus account doesn't work as i get a "No network Connection" error there. WTF is up with Meta forcing users into this crap that is rife with issues. And I cant raise a ticket because there is no support option for Gear VR. And I refuse to buy a $400 headset just on principle...My existing one worked just fine until today.

Hello All 

Have you been able to make it work ? still have the same issue. It is crazy that we can't even log in the app anymore. I m having the "Facebook session expired, your Facebook session has expired or is invalid. Please log in to Facebook again." tried everything without success. Really not a good way to get end user adoption. 


this is the only way to login to the app after migrating...thank u

VALVE! If i get enough money - I will definitely bring em to VALVE. Those guys at least an artists. HL2 is still in my heart. And these meta bastards are all about money and power! Digital fascists!

When you buy a used car that someone never had a chance to drive - you just fill the fuel and drive an 30 years old classic in a good condition. When I bought a secondhand brand new never used Gear VR, I expected the same. You idiots trying to force me to buy some of your new **bleep**? First of all if a had money maybe I would. But not now anymore, since you left me with lost money and no VR experience at all. All my experience - "never trust that mothe**bleep**ers".
