Facebook does have a limited number of RSS feeds. My new mobile phone allows me to subscribe to up to two web feeds for each of my contacts. Here are the steps I had to go through to get an RSS feed for one friend's status update. (Genuine first-hand research/trial and error.)
I've just got a new mobile phone on a cheaper tariff. I have stayed with Orange, since they were (more or less) able to match a cheaper deal I'd seen. However, having just gone through the process of switching sim cards and handsets, I'd like to record three distinct processes that should all be the same (but aren't): what is says in the box, what they say on the phone, and what happens in real life!
