It says it doesn't work with Blackberry., I get the same error.

if you want facebook plugins to share your location, try blackberrytracker.com. I used it, I liked it, I'm sticking with it.

when you click the "get it now" it lists blackberry specifically as not working.
or from the FAQ

You will need to have:

The right phone. You need a Java (J2ME) enabled phone or a BlackBerry device with a trackball. BREW, Windows Mobile, Palm, Symbian, and iPhone devices are NOT supported at this time.
A data plan. Please note that some wireless carriers may restrict data usage by application. We recommend contacting your wireless carrier to confirm the details of your data plan.

you mean, as working?

"BREW, Windows Mobile, Palm, Symbian, and iPhone devices are NOT supported at this time. "

Yeah, it doesn't say a BB is NOT supported. It says you need a BB with a trackball.

I set mine to only my friends see my location. But then again, my friends could be a stalker. I installed this device on my AT&T Tilt onto the built-in MIDlet Java application. Works great.

I also got this installed on my Nokia N82 with built-in GPS, and Nokia N82 is a Symbian, but it has a MIDlet Java apps built-in to load Java application onto the device.

It doesn't work on my 8800 or my wifes Red 8310 Curve. :( It doesn't even work on my 8310 Curve either. But at least I tried on all of them, just to let you guys know.
