    Hello, whenever I try to sign in on the facebook app it says unable to connect to server, I pulled the battery out, deleted and reinstalled facebook, have the newest version of faceboook and have the email set up

    I don't have the problem. Are you running the beta?

    Just got my Bold from Verizon a couple days ago and the Facebook app is almost unusable. Horrific lag on everything in the app.

    I couldn't do it either, and I'm on Sprint. If I put in a bad password, it would tell me the password/username combo was bad. Good username and PW, resulted in an "unable to connect to server error". Me thinks it's a FB or BB/BIS problem, and likely not carrier specific.

    Here's a workaround.

    Edit: internal links on CB are funky today -- delete the h t t p://forums.crackberry.com/!m500923! from the beginning of the above link if you get a "page not found."

    How is this a FaceBook workaround when it takes you to a hybrid/beta for a 9000?

    Facebook is a piece of turd.

    Not only could I not connect (on regular occasion), but it brought my brand-new Bold 9650 to a grinding halt on multiple occasions.

    The new beta (v1.8.0.31) is much better. Look around here for the instructions on how to update 1.7 > 1.8 without a key.

    Mine only works when I turn WiFi off....same with the Blackberry App World; neither work if I'm connected to my WiFi. A bug, I'd imagine!
