    hey,

    this is pretty odd, the facebook download doesnt seem to work... neither on my computer nor my 8800 (AT&T). i get to the page and accept the terms then it takes me to what im guessing is the download page...

    Facebook


    Note

    Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2) users: if you encounter an error, look at the top of this page for a yellow bar that reads "This site might require the following ActiveX control: 'AxLoader.cab' from 'Research In Motion'. Click here to install..." Click the yellow bar and choose "Install ActiveX Control..." to allow installation to proceed.

    first of all, i have a Mac, second of all this also pops on my bberry? what's the deal?

    Well, the problem with the website is that, well, your using a MAC as the error indicates, it's only supported by Windows, and the problem you may be getting this error while on your device is that you have your device set to emulate Microsoft IE, rather then acting as a WAP browser, you can change this by going into your browser, press menu key, go to options, browser configutation and change the "emulation mode"..in this case, choose blackberry as it will be the most compatible

    Hi folks,

    I'm a Blackberry newbie so I've probably done something very silly but if anyone can help I'd greatly appreciate it.

    Followed the link to download the app on the PC, it found the Pearl connected to it and said installation was complete. If I look under Advanced Options > Applications on the handheld it lists the Facebook app but I can't find it from the home page of application list (I've tried restarting and 'show all' on the homepage but nothing.

    What am I doing so very wrong?!

    Thanks in advance.
    I'm having the EXACT same issue, and slowly going insane...

    HELP!!!
    And the same problem here ... anybody have idea why an application would claim to be installed but would not show up as an icon anywhere on the device?

    Is it free or? Is this going to cost me text messages or does it just use the data plan? How's it work?

    I go to the site, on both my computer and bb, agree to the terms and conditions, and get a page reading:

    "Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2) users: if you encounter an error, look at the top of this page for a yellow bar that reads "This site might require the following ActiveX control: 'AxLoader.cab' from 'Research In Motion'. Click here to install..." Click the yellow bar and choose "Install ActiveX Control..." to allow installation to proceed."

    There is no option to install ActiveX... and I get the same page on my Pearl

    I have the same issue as many people where I get "an error occured while contacting facebook"

    I'm on ATT with Enterprise -> I think this has something to do with it, yet I've not found out the solution yet.

    Approximate average data usage per most commonly used features

    Friend list download: 60 KB (for 200 friends)

    photo upload: 21 KB

    Wall post: 1 KB

    Poke: 1 KB

    Message: 1-2 KB



    Estimated average usage per day (according to RIM, not the Real World

    2 Messages a day (60 Messages a month) = 100 KB

    1 Wall post a day (30 Wall posts a week) = 30 KB

    2 Pokes per week (8 Pokes per month) = 8 KB

    6 Photo uploads a month (6 Photos per month) = 120 KB

    200 User Friend list = 120 KB (say we download it twice)

    Total = 378 KB per month

    I'm not sure if this is happening to other people or not...

    the facebook app lets me know of wall posts and messages and such, which i can see no problem. however, whenever i receive anything that would appear as a 'Notification' on my homepage, it wont let me follow the link and view it (ie SuperWall posts, comments on posted items, etc). is there something wrong with my app... ?

    I've turned off notification of SuperWall posts in Facebook now. They're mostly things like, "I just found a video on YouTube" and I'm like, "YouTube has videos? You're kidding!" I can do without notifications of SuperWall posts.

    Of course SuperWall probably doesn't work on BlackBerry because it needs Flash or something.

    I can send messages from my BB on Facebook, but when the person responds, I don't receive a notification. Can someone walk me through how to get notifications on my BB?

    The notifications I want are activated under "Account", and the email address is up to date. Is there anything I may be missing?

    Today I noticed the Facebook icon on my phone, even though I never downloaded it. I've never even used Facebook ever. Did T-Mobile automatically put it on my phone somehow?
