hi guys just got my first blackberry and just downloaded the facebook app, just wanted to know if it is constantly connected to the internet or only when you actually open the application? I dont have unlimited mobile internet so dont want to waste my free MBs on facebook when am not even connected to it.

thanks Danny

AS long as the app is not running in the background, even if you are logged in, it will not use data.
It only uses data when open.

If you're that concerned don't bother with the app. Just use the mobile site For notifications and status updates you can use the SMS feature. Now Facebook has reply by email feature going as well, so you can reply to comments etc via emailw ithout even going to the site.
