I am trying to download the facebook application on to my BB 8700 r and it says that my phone doesnt have the system requirments to do so.

i have enabled javascript and html as well as using a "microsoft IE" browser.

How come it doesnt work?

That means you have version 4.1.0.284 for your device. Check the sticky threads at the top of the 8700 forum for the latest version.

That's what I would do.

And start out with a full backup of your device before starting the upgrade.

You need to first download and install BlackBerry Desktop Manager on your PC.

You can find the latest one here:

Applications: 4.5.0.174
Software Platform: 2.7.0.105
File name: 8700M_PBr4.5.0_rel294_PL2.7.0.105_A4.5.0.174_AVEA. exe
