Thumbs down New facebook on Blackberry Curve

Please Login to Remove!

Hi, I've just downloaded the new Facebook onto my BlackBerry curve, this is the one with 'Places' on it, every time I go on there it just says 'Your location is temporarily not available' I don't want to ring up services or whatever because I really can't be bothered with it. Please help x

That's because the 8520 doesn't have GPS.

Probably that's why my facebook has a hard time working correctly. My 8520 doesn't have GPS i just heard. I'll probably switch to the 3G curve then. Thank you.

Even without GPS you should get some cell tower triangulation. I can't remember what options there are under Options >Advanced Options >GPS but if there is any "location aiding" in there you want that enabled.

I have a Curve 8530 thru Verizon and Places does not work for me either. I have GPS enabled. I've done battery pulls. I have checked my PC and fixed all settings. Still, all it read is "your location is temporarily not available". It's been like for 3 days now.

Anyone know the fix?
