Default Facebook Slows Phone..

Please Login to Remove!

I don't know if this is just me but when I use the Facebook app (regularly), it works great until I need to write on a friends wall or view a friends profile. Even connect a friend with a contact. Basically anything pertaining to friends slows down the Facebook app and my phone it self comes to a crawl.

Once I press "F" to load my friends list. It's at 99% and it's just there... Updating.. Updating.. Updating... Eventually it will finish and the phone will return to normal functionality. But, say as soon as it's finish updating, I press "W" to write on a friends wall, it needs to update again. Wtf?

Is this normal? Why does the friends list have to update this much. I don't add that many friends on a minutely basis. Is it something with the app? Is it just me?

Is Facebook and RIM working on this?

Same problem here. I believe it has something to do with our build of OS5 because I use the same one on my 9000...

I wanted to downgrade fb to version 1.6 because that worked flawlessly but i cannot find the OTA.

Hi everyone, I am new here, thought of starting a new thread but don't know how yet. So for the time being, the topic here is the closest. Ok, i would say I am very please with my Blackberry Bold at the beginning. Everything works well till recently when I started downloading applications from Blackberry App World. And then the phone started becoming really really laggy. Its as good as the phone Hang. I contacted a lot of Blackberry agent and finally referred to an agent from RIM and he suggested I set the phone back to factory setting and see if the 'file free' memory dropped even without any third party applications. I did. And within hours, the memory dropped to half. According to that RIM agent, if the memory dropped by 1 MB within a short time without applications in the phone, it means the phone is having problem.

Something I realised now about Blackberry phone is, it is only good for pushmail and reading emails. Nothing else. If you want to install lots of applications, go for Iphone. The phone itself is of low quality. Not only for myself. Too many problem with the quality of the handset. A friend of mine bought the Bold for a day, and the trackball failed. Another friend bought the Bold too and for 1 day, the camera don't work. She have to sell it. Come on Blackberry, what's going on with your Quality control? Even China made phone is better and people are paying lots of money for your product.

I have done a comparison with Iphone and I think I made a mistake buying Blackberry. I do like the way Blackberry's phone works. Just that what so smart about a phone that allow people to download applications but cannot use it (the blackberry agent told me that Blackberry's phones are not meant for a lot of applications. People like it bcos of the faster pushmail and email features. I was like, what the F@*k is he talking about? If it does not support applications, why was this crap phone up in the market and selling as an high end product? Guys, do you get what I mean?)?

Anyway, my personal view of this Blackberry phone is, its a sucky phone. Before, I supported it, now I hated it. Blackberry, if this go on, I am sure you will lose a lot of customers. Thanks for reading, people.

Don't hijack a thread with a new post.
Just start a new post.
And, on topic, I think the newer versions of Facebook run very slow. The only reason I keep it on mine is that it allows me to select albums when uploading pictures.
