    A friend of mine has a 8330 and convinced me to get one. I love it, and might be on it entirely too much, Crackberry thing is making sense now. He gets immediate alerts when people poke, message, write on his wall, etc. How do I set that up, I downloaded the Facebook app and I have a similar screen to his, but I get no notifications and I keep having to put my email and password in. What do I do to get immediate alerts?

    PS - Sorry if this was covered in another thread, I couldn't find one.

    The Facebook app you're using is full of bugs, wait for version 1.5 to be released...

    To get immediate notifications (when it works right) try using your blackberry's email address. If this does not work then like the prior response...its a little buggy and doesnt always send notifications immediately but I tend to get them later on

    edit - I use the newest verision which is 1.2.0

    It was leaked for os 4.6 so you would think it is right around the corner but you never know.

    So I should set up my email for facebook to be my blackberry email address? By notifications, we're not talking about email or texts right?

    You would think, i'm leaning towards it going to 2.0 like they said was going to be released later this year...

    correct - I use my @sprint.blackberry.com email and I get notifications when I get a friend req or msg etc etc faster than the notification from the app itself

    I just downloaded it and installed it. I get facebook notifications whenever someone sends me a message or poke or whatever.

    will facebook just leap to 2.0? I thought 1.5 would have been released with the appstore... poor move by RIM

    I currently use my college email. Is there any way I can keep that for facebook and still get alerts?

    you might be able to set up a filter though your college email to send anything facebook related to your blackberry email.
