A blackberry requires a specific BLACKBERRY data plan. They generic one won't cut it.

You'll have to call up 3 and ask for the blackberry specific plan

As said above, Facebook is one of the apps that require RIM specific data services and the only way to get that is to add the BB dataplan to the account. Not sure of the cost but here in the US it is about $30 a month over and above the voice services.
