Opera Mini + Facebook | Login is still the best solution, IMHO.

I'm on Verizon, haven't been able to download yet. When I first went to Facebook on my bb, I had the link to download, I clicked, nothing happened. Now when I go to Facebook, I no longer have the download link, even after loggign out/in and clearing cache & cookies. I've read elsewhere that users have this working with Verizon bb's. Does anyone have the direct download link?

EDIT: still can't get back to OTA download, but found this to install via desktop:
BlackBerry - BlackBerry | Wireless Handheld Devices, Software & Services from Research In Motion (RIM)

I just noticed this as well -- it seems that your Blackberry main screen is only updated when you receive email notifications from Facebook.

I had two picture comment notifications get caught in my email providerís spam filter.

When I later went in and released the emails and they were delivered to my Blackberry (the next day) - suddenly two Facebook notification icons appeared on my Blackberry and the notification screen showed that two people made comments -- at the time the emails were received on my Blackberry (not the actual time they made the comment the night before).

On the main notification screen, the time of the comments was the exact same time as the time I received the two delayed emails (NOT the time the comments were made) from Facebook.

Quite possibly at least part of this application is not as real time as it might seem. Clicking on the notifications DOES bring you to the Facebook information with proper date and times.

If you have the email account that your notification are sent to on your blackberry, you will not receive an email(on your blackberry) notifying you of the event. Instead, the facebook notifier pops up.

Interestingly enough, if i log onto gmail, i have an email notification.

All of my other email was pushed to my blackberry. So my interpretation of this app, is that it 'intercepts' either on the blackberry, or on RIMs servers and blocks the email and makes a notification for it.


The more i use the app, the more useless it seems to me. Along witht he quirks mentioned above(no view/edit profile, the application icon when its running) i feel like this app may have been rushed.... anyone else feel the same way?

Unhappy Won't install on 8100

I've installed this twice and in my Advanced Options/Apps it shows it installed but I see no icon anywhere. Could it be conflicting with my theme perhaps?

Any ideas?

I think you might be right. I didn't watch the incoming notification email that closely to see whether it ever made it onto my BB. I'm testing it again but I'm betting you're right.

I know for sure that the notification screen on the FB app only shows the time that the email was received -- NOT the time the event happened. So if the email is delayed going to your BB, you don't get a real time notification from FB. In essence you are getting a notification via email which is triggering the icon.

It's probably a power saver as well -- I didn't see any manual for the FB app, did you?

I uninstalled the application then reinstalled it. No more issues, it's working fine.

I have text notifications enabled in Facebook and those come through still, in addition to alerts from the Facebook app. The texts come in a lot earlier than the Facebook alert, though. At least it seems that way.

Default Facebook for T-Mobile only

I got this announcement at work like a month ago. At T-Mobile we signed exclusive rights to have this software pair with our network. So if you have anything but TMO it wont work properly (at least I have been told so). We also signed exclusive rights for MySpace program similar to the facebook one to work on our Sidekick 3 and Sidekick LX which just came out.. There are talkes to open it up to the Blackberry as well.. we will see.. Just FYI. Sorry I didnt get this announcement up a month ago :( lol

Works fine on my device. SunCom isn't yet part of the TMO network, but it works without any issues.

ota install was quick and easy and it seems to be working great still. Seems like alerts get to my fine pretty quickly. So, i don't think success is limited to t-mo...

I'm on wap so what's the verdict on this app? I'd scroll thru all 72 posts in this thread but that will take to long via wapbbf

Hmm, not according to SunCom and T-Mobile. Network switch over won't happen until 2008. According to both companies, SunCom is still SunCom on all fronts. Anyway, it doesn't matter. The main thing is that the Facebook app works.

Default I feel

like this app leaves a lot to be desired. Its fun to play around with and all that, but seriously, there could have been so many more features. Oh well, it was free!

Has anyone gotten this app to work with BES? I've downloaded the app but when I try to sign in I get a msg saying that There was an error contacting Facebook. Anyone else have this problem?

Does this need your facebook email to be going directly to your BB?

I love this new app except for 2 things:

1. I want the program to stay on. Virtually no other app fully closes when you hit the esc key? Why does this app? Hopefully the facebook msg icon still shows up even when not running in the background. Haven't had it long enough to test this.
2. The photos aren't full resolution. I would give my left arm for this so that I wouldnt have to pay for flicker. That would give me unlimited storage + easy uploading on the go.

Can't expect anything for the 1st release but hopefully they add more in the future. Does anyone know how often RIM updates their apps?

The alerts that are sent to your facebook app are the email notifications that are set on your account. Now if your bb email and fb email match. You can go to the facebook app options and uncheck leave message on server and instead of getting email alerts like you always have. The bb facebook app will habdle it all and alert you if its running in the backround. I have found that this process IS instantaeous.
