Default FB Places will not locate on BB

Please Login to Remove!

I have a BB Bold 9650 and I recently uploaded the new version of Facebook with Places. However, Places keeps saying "Your location is temporarily not available", My GPS is on and this comes up no matter where I am.

Anybody experiencing the same problem or has a solution for it?

Thanks!

Really? Because I had no problem with Foursquare locating me or Google Maps.

In the GPS options, do you have "location aiding" checked? Needs to be checked for FB Places.

Hiya, I can see a few threads made on facebook place so I wont make another one but all I want to know is, does it work on the BB curve 8520 and the BB bold 9700? 'cos neither my fella or me can get it to work!

Mines the curve and I'm on Virgin and he's is the Bold and he's on Orange!!!

Help us please, its doin our heads in, all we keep getting is 'your location is unavailable'?? we have been in the 'options' on BB facebook but the place where you tick to allow places is greyed out and wont let you tick it, also my main facebook profile is enabled too, but nothing is working?

ANYBODY PLEASE HELP....MUCH APPRECIATED!!
