Nice indeed!

EclipseGSohsix 10-24-2007 04:14 PM

yeah this would be awesome if US Cellular supported it :(

I'm not receiving notifications from wall posts etc. Is anybody else having this problem? Isn't that main screen supposed to be your mini feed/notification list?

serpico007 10-24-2007 04:25 PM

Has anyone tried this on their 8700 on Fido / Rogers?

I went to the site link on my PC and got the weird error messages like no device connected and your provider doesn't allow this connection.

Then I went to the website link through my device browser and didn't see any link to download the app just links to get started and home.

I'm running OS 4.1.0.284 on my 8700.

Nevermind I just answered my own question but in case somebody needs to know how...go to your facebook and click account and check all the notifications you want to recieve. Save Changes and Bam... mini feed away baby!

However, this does not seem to work for Nextel :-(

I was excited to see this reported on Gizmodo, but alas... I'm another one of the abused Nextel users. :-(

ldub 10-24-2007 05:17 PM

Google Talk 2.0.x.x was also released.

BryanHarig 10-24-2007 05:48 PM

I can't get the OTA download to work for me at all. I always end up at this download screen that is giving tips about xp sp 2 users and a percentage bar that is at 0 percent. What am I doing wrong?

I had issues installing the facebook app but once I was able to get it installed it wouldn't show me my new messages and it even though I refreshed my friend list some of the contacts wouldn't show up. On the rimarkable website it says it's for T-Mobile customers, is this why it's not functioning properly on my BlackBerry?

One thing I noticed is that you cannot upload photos from the MicroSD card -- they can only be uploaded from phone memory.

More screen shots and a brief review - Facebook for Blackberry Available Now at Gear Diary

Edit 10-25-07: Corrected my review to reflect that you can indeed upload from MicroSD. Added post further down this thread to explain my mistake.

psyct1 10-24-2007 09:07 PM

i've got mine working with no problem

EDIT: i just installed it and logged right in

My major issues with the application is your cannot view/edit profiles INSIDE of the application. It launches the Browser.

You pretty much hit the nail on the head.

Also, it's weird that it doesn't have an icon in the application switcher (just a block command prompt icon), not a big deal, just a nitpick.

mine works from my microsd

mas90guru 10-25-2007 05:11 AM

Sorry - you're absolutely right - I just went back and looked after reading that people were able to access photos from the MicroSD card. I have been able to do that as well.

What I found is that if I go to "Device Memory" to view pictures that are in my phone memory (and not the MicroSD card), that it is difficult to navigate back to MicroSD (thus giving me the initial impression that it was not possible).

In order to navigate back to MicroSD I found that I had to use the left soft key and select "Up" to navigate up the menu. There isn't any ".." icon which most commonly would be used to allow you to go back.

mas90guru 10-25-2007 05:36 AM

I found that the problem I had was that Mass Storage Mode was enabled and my device was cabled so I could use BBSCREEN to capture images.

In that configuration, the MicroSD card was not accessible.

When I dis-connected the cable, I was able to upload from the MicroSD.

Also, when I turned off the Mass Storage Mode, I was able to upload from the MicroSD.

FYI in case anyone makes the same mistake as me in the future.
