    Is there any app I can use facebook with, via wifi? I hate mobile web, I tried snaptu but I think it doesn't work. I do have a data plan but it is bbm+email only.

    We have it, it's a LOT cheaper.

    We have Pre-Paid BIS too.

    Rogers here in Canada also offers BlackBerry e-mail plans. They allow for unlimited e-mail and IM (supposedly all of the IM clients, not just BBM, although I've not tested it).

    My wife is on the e-mail plan, and she CANNOT use any of the RIM apps. They all work through BIS, and since our provider has only provisioned her account for e-mail and IM, that's all that works. Plus the HotSpot web browser, of course.

    There are a few 3rd party WiFi apps you can check out though:

    The one thing I wish my wife could do is Google Sync, but alas, no...

    Or Canadian carriers. But then again anyone other American is foreign.

    Hi, i would like to use facebook app over wifi too, i have downloaded wifix to give it a try, but facebook isn't working and it shouldn't since there is no settings for it.
    How can i know where are the apps trying to connect to?
    This way i can setup some others that are not available in wifix's setup and can work. TIA

    i think the newest version of facebook is not wifi compatible. You must need a data plan.

    However I know older versions do not require a data plan.

    I think Facebook 1.5 does not require a data plan. If you can find that on the internet I suggest you give that a try
