Thanks for the super quick reply, I understand that if its left on in the background it will send me notifications. What troubles me is that short of switching out of the program (alt+esc or switching out through menu) it won't stay on in the background when I hit esc. I guess I'm just lazy when it comes to that since I've never run across a BB app that doesn't stay on in the background when you hit esc.

Exit out by pressing the end call button. It will stay in the back this way

Default FB w/ Rogers on 8700 No Workey?

Ok so I upgraded my os to 4.2 and have an 8700r on Rogers. When I try to
sign in I get this error.

"there was an error contacting Facebook".

A friend is also on Rogers with a Pearl and he too gets the same error?

Thanks!

Hello,

Thank you for contacting the Rogers Business Technical Support Center.
We appreciate the time you have taken to email us regarding your inquiry.

In reference to your email, currently Rogers Wireless Blackberry products are not optimised for the Facebook application. Hence, we are unable to provide a guarantee regarding functionality or performance as Rogers does not have a service agreement in place with Facebook.

While the application is generic in nature, each respective carrier has a specified version build based on carrier needs. Unfortunately the version offered by Facebook does not appear to be directly compatible with Rogers Wireless Blackberry products.

We hope this information proves useful to you.

You can always go into options and select the option that removes email off the server.

Talking This might help anyone who's having issues with installing Facebook for Blackberry

Hey folks,

This is my first pot even though i've been using blackberry forums for ages, I've noticed that on this thread a lot of people have been having difficulty with download and connectivity issues with the new programme.

I work at a T-Mobile store in London, UK, and am always the one everyone goes to if there is an issue with their blackberry ... I've found a couple of things that might help with Facebook for Blackberry issues:

1.) it seems to only work on handhelds which have installed or have been upgraded to the 4.2.xx OS/firmware

2.) although the programme is made by RIM, it still runs of the TCP settings, and if these aren't set, your blackberry won't work ... i.e. T-Mobile UK Blacberrys *ARE NEVER* set up for TCP use, you gotts go to Options/Settings-> Advanced Options -> TCP -> set the APN as general.t-mobile.uk -> save it and then re-start the phone.

Hope this has been useful and not just rubbish!

I'm actually pretty impressed with this. And I like that the app has the same theme as the website.

I think the main feature that I'll be using is the ability to upload and tag pics directly from my phone. I always take pics I want to share, but I get lazy when I get back to my computer to upload them.

I get the same error on an 8310 with the latest firmware. I know my firewall denies access to FB during business hours, so I set the BB browser preferences to use Internet Browser versus the FB-restricted BES/MDS BB Browser.

Didn't really seem to fix anything as I still get the nullpointerexception error.

I wish you could read the news feed in the app rather than going to the mobile site to scroll and load all those pages. But overall, nice app.

Hopefully this is a great resource for the community, we have even included a video walk through which has been uploaded to YouTube.

If you are currently running a BlackBerry themed website, please feel free to embed this video in your site if you feel it will be of value to your visitors.

Cheers,
Cooper
