Default Unable to connect to Facebook 1.6

Please Login to Remove!

I just downloaded version 1.6 of Facebook on my Blackberry Curve 8320. When I try to logon, it gives me this error message, "Could not connect because a data service is not available. Please try again later. If this continues, contact your service provider for support." I have the basic Rogers data plan, and I have a Wifi connection and can get online (and on Facebook) through the regular browser.

You need the BlackBerry data plan to use the Facebook application.
