Default Facebook, places and GPS

Please Login to Remove!

Hi there, would be most grateful for any help with the following very minor problem.

I am using the latest facebook app on Blackberry Curve on the Orange network based in the UK.

When I try to access "nearby places" on the facebook app I get the message:

"No GS support"

"Your device does not support location services. To use Facebook places, a device with built-in location serives is required"

Is there something I can download for this or do I have to contact my provider? I have the Google Mas app which shows my current location.

Many thanks again.

The 8520 does not have an internal GPS receiver chip. You cannot use this feature.
