    I'VE done a search int he forums for this issue which has led to a few possible fixes but none have been successful. ....let me paint a more clear picture because it seems a lot of people have had issues with this and it is really starting to get on my nerves. Also it may be a Facebook thing so im not trying to blame the phone all the way. ..and im sure there may be some user error as well.

    I originally had my gmail acct linked to my blackberry. this is the email acct that would normally get my noti's from facebook, i downloaded the facebook app, everything worked fine..i got the "red star" on my facebook app icon when someone left me a comment and all that jazz and it would all be listed in the "notification" portion of the facebook app...here is where it went bad. I didn't like the way linking gmail to my blackberry would send out an individual email everytime someone would reply all to an email i was on. so i downloaded the gmail app which made my gmail experience on my blackberry more like it was on the net. When doing that i deleted the gmail linked email from my blackberry...and BAM now no noti's on my facebook app. i get them on the gmail app, which is not what i want. i tried adding the gmail link back and it still didn't work. i have no clue what to do, i've heard the following possible fixes of which none have worked, Run the facebook set up wizard again, Pull the battery , ReInstall the facebook app, Go to facebook and uncheck noti's and recheck them then save. ...none of these have worked.

    Would someone please tell me what i am doing to funk all this up? Thank you in advance.

    The Facebook app checks for notifications by monitoring your email inbox on the phone. It cannot check the gmail app for email notifications.

    edit: just saw that you said you readded your mailbox to your BB? (OP is kind of hard to read ... sorry )

    Or just set up a blackberry.net email account and have FB send your notifications there.

    Then set up a separate hotmail account for facebook. Then you can check it on the computer, but at the same time have it associated with your BB to get the FB notifications.
