    yeah, i'm still looking for a 1.6.0.22 download that actually works. The bbhybrids link results with the 907 error when downloading from the BB browser.

    EDIT: Looks like it may be an issue with me not having BIS. Is there any way someone could get the COD/ALX files for Facebook 1.6.0.22 and post them? Thanks!
    Try this:
    Download facebook.rar from Sendspace.com - send big files the easy way
    Just installed it, working great on my 9700 OS 5.0, w/o BIS data plan

    I think you can download from the BB site. Look at the link at the bottom for fb 1.6

    See the error message I pasted in a few posts prior. You cannot download it from the mobile site, at least not if you have 5.0.

    Haha thanks, I found out somewhere else, took a while though as it was on a foreign language website...

    Now I just gotta find an Opera Mini browser that will install and work....

    How did you install facebook? At my BB it doesn't automatically install, so I have to open it. But my stupid BB 9700 shows me always the following text:
    "Unable to display file/Media Card/facebook rar."
    What do I have to do to get Facebook working?

    Some information that might help you:
    1. I am a new user to BB without any experience.
    2. I am using the BB Bold 9700 without an contract or any BB services.
    3. I'd just like to use Facebook. As I don't have BB services, I cannot use the newest version of Fb, so I think it should work with the old one.
    4. I tried to download the 1.6 at the BB website, but it says, my device does not support this version.

    Any1 got an idea? Thanks!

    You need to download it to your desktop then unzip it. Once you do that, you can load Facebook via Apploader in Desktop Manager.

    Well, when I download the file, I get a .rar file, so I cannot unzip it.

    Utilize the power of google. There are a number of free programs that will unzip a .rar file. I use IZArc, another I used in the past was WinRar.

    I installed it and I got the Facebook icon in the Applications folder. But when I try to log in, it says, like v1.7 that it could not connect, because a data service is not available.
    When I go to Settings/Applications/Addons, it shows me that the Facebook Version is 1.6.0.22 ALXmake.
    I thought, v1.6.0.22 will work without data plans.
    Is Facebook working on your device without data plans, just with Wifi?
    Btw, what firmware are you using, because I am currently using the v5.0.0.423

    Or is it possible that it is not working, because my device is branded by T-Mobile?

    It shouldn't matter which carrier you have. I have a data plan so I'm not sure if that makes a difference or not. I know you cannot get the ota download version from RIM's site via wifi.

    Here you go! There are 4 versions in this .ZIP file:

    - FB 1.6.0.17 for OS 4.5
    - FB 1.5 for OS 4.6 if you wanna save battery and ram
    - FB 1.6.0.22 for OS 5.0
    - FB 1.6.0.21 for 4.6

    Remember to delete all the previous installed version before you try the new one. If you can't see the icon after the installation, try another one.

    Good luck.

    Thankyou to link posted by r1ce earlier. FB 1.6.0.22 works on my bold.

    1.6.0.21 did not work
    1.7 did not work b/c it requires BIS

    I am running os 5.0.0.411

    You will need to download the cod/alx and install through the loader b/c eventhough there is a OTA link for FB 1.6, you need BIS to download it
