Default Help! Need 'Facebook Mobile' app, NOT 'Facebook' app

Please Login to Remove!

I had to wipe my Blackberry, and thus lost all my apps. I had a 'Facebook' app, which is the common Facebook application for Blackberry, as well as an app that was called 'Facebook Mobile'. The 'Facebook Mobile' app was essentially an icon on my home page (same as the Facebook app icon), that was a bookmark to the mobile Facebook web page.

I can't seem to find the 'Facebook Mobile' app ANYWHERE for download! Please help.

I think when I first got my phone, before Facebook knew what model it was, at the bottom of Facebook (on my phone), it would say DOWNLOAD FACEBOOK FOR YOUR MOBILE DEVICE. Now it says DOWNLOAD FACEBOOK FOR YOUR TOUR. Maybe this has something to do with it.

I hate the Facebook app, and just want the app that is a bookmark linking to the mobile Facebook webpage.

PLEASE ADVISE! THANKS SO MUCH, THIS IS DRIVING ME CRAZY!!!

You could search for BlackBerry program launchers that will help you to create an icon on your home screen to the web address that was suggested by devnull.

I thought there was either the Facebook app, or the mobile Facebook web page.

if the ICON that takes you to the mobile facebook web page, is missing; then it sounds like it was a service book push from your carrier.
Try resending service books.
