Unhappy Facebook Calendar and Contacts Issue

Please Login to Remove!

Hello Everyone,

I recently had to reinstall Facebook v1.6 on my Bold and after doing so, I no longer have the option for connecting my Facebook account with my "BlackBerry Calendar Application" or "BlackBerry Contacts Application". Both items are listed there, but they are faded in the background and won't allow me to select the option. I used to be able to select these items though. Anyone else having this problem or know of a possible solution? Any help is greatly appreciated!

Looks like people just don't care. Although, it looks like its only affecting people on a BES.

If you do a little search on this site you'll find a couple of posts about this.

It's a policy on the BES that disallows the Facebook application to interact with your contacts and calander.

You need to get in touch with your BES admin.

Default Not Just BES

I'm not able to get my FB Calendar to sync up either but I'm not on a BES. A coworker of mine who is also not on our BES is having no issues with FB calendar or contacts.. go figure..

Default Facebook

Same problem here. The calendar and contacts sync used to work on FB 1.5, stoped working on 1.6. Search the entire IT Policy didn't found any mention of the FB application. Using bes 4.1.6.23

I can confirm the above post. Through a little hunting, I imported the correct Policy ruleset, and can now select those options.
