The 8520 doesn't have GPS, so it should use cell triangulation.
However, even models with GPS have problems with the FB Places, so I would say its hit and miss on a blackberry.

No idea. There appears to be no reason why it works on some and not on others.
Perhaps its the network, perhaps its the application, perhaps its facebook.

Are you sure your location is turned on under your phone settings (it can't be set to 911 only)? If it isn't, Facebook Locations won't work.
