you can disable the beep and the red light.

1.)go into profiles.
2.)select Set Ring Tones/Alerts (select the profile you want to change the setting in, you have do each one individually.)
3.)select the "other" branch.
5.(select the facebook app.

when done hit that back arrow and save, then back arrow and save agian for it to take effect.

well either way the icon will. it has to tell you that you have an alert. it wont stop coming up. sometines you can find a custom theme with a glitch in it so it doesent show up. the icon will always appear, and the little star on the icon will too. as long as it doesent ring or blink, it shouldnt betoo much of a pain.

the only way to stop the alerts is deleting the app.....then going on facebook mobile through the browser and looking at notifications there. not to sound sarcastic or rude, but the point of the app is to alert you that you have a notification.

no problem. sorry there is no way to turn that off though. it can be annoying at times, especially if you get constact updates.

Just got my BB yesterday, and was wondering about this. It's v annoying. Thanks for the advice. What I have done to stop the alerts altogether, is to log out of FB on the app.

Actually, turning off notifications on Facebook from the computer used to stop the icon from appearing in the Blackberry app. But with the new version of the app that just replaced the old one, the icon will always appear. Thanks to that, I refuse to "Like" anything anymore because I don't want a flashing light every time someone else comments or Likes the same thing. Way to make me NOT make the best use of Facebook and therefore defeat the entire purpose Facebook for BlackBerry.

Same problem as mkeho86 above. I'm not getting any alerts at all for any notifications. Any fix to get those activated again? I haven't changed any settings, just that my phone ran outta juice and turned off completely yesterday. The problem started when I turned it on again.

Thanks. This does what I needed. Do I need to repeat for every profile?
