My three kids each have an 8120 and none can upload photos to facebook. Has anyone found a fix? I see the suggestion of reducing the size of the file - that seems like a weak choice after the $$ invested in these gadgets.

Thanks!

pinkerton, have they upgraded the devices to the latest FB 1.8 upgrade?

On their device, use the browser to go to w w w.blackberry.com/facebook or find the upgrade in AppWorld.

This is what I have found through some testing.

Taking pictures with the camera set to Large/Superfine would hardly work at all.
Taking pictures with the camera set to Medium/Superfine would hardly work at all
Taking pictures with the camera set to Medium/Fine worked about 75% of the time
Taking pictures with the camera set to Medium/Normal worked 100% of the time.

While this isn't a solution, these are my findings in regards to uploading pictures that I've taken with the BB to Facebook.

8330/4.5.0.186
FB 1.7

I haven't been able to upgrade a photo to FB from my BB for several days now. Doesn't matter if it was 1.7 on my Bold or 1.8 on my Torch. Neither would work.

jsconyers - I will try out the same testing you did and see if lowering the picture size helps.

I just changed size to medium and fine and it worked.

This is sooo frustrating :(
