Post Facebook and Maps App blocked

Please Login to Remove!

Hi, the stupid telecom authority in my country has suspended Facebook app and Maps app including blackberry maps and google maps thru the relevant service providers. I can access FB thru the web browser and it works fine. Since the telecom authority is a government agency dont know if and when they will unblock it.
Is there any third party app that allows access to FB as an application rather than having to use it through the browser...any guidance will be greatly appreciated...thanks

Nope. You're stuck, and I wouldn't risk messing about with the ISI.

Yeah, but the PTA does pretty much whatever the ISI wants in the name of "security".

For what it's worth, you can be happy you're not in Iran. They don't even have BlackBerry there.
