    Hey everyone!

    I was just wondering if anyone else was having any trouble with their Facebook application lately? I'm using a 8330 Curve with Sprint and it seems to be "fetching" any updates or posts indefinitely lately.

    I'm wondering if this has anything to do with Facebook recently updating their website... what are your thoughts?

    I kind of figured that it was an issue with the app, so I uninstalled it. When I went to the Blackberry website, got the link again and when I went to download it on my phone it was a newer version that I had previously downloaded. It seems to be working fine now...maybe try that?

    Should I uninstall first or can I just dl the new version as an upgrade?

    I am also having the same problem. I have tried reloading the app from both the bb and facebook sites but still no help. I am on the Rogers network in Canada. Would that have anything to do with it?

    The new version 1.2 just allows you to remove the "is". I'm not having any issues at one point I was not receiving notifications properly but it corrected itself and has bn working as it should.

    Hopefully yall issue will be resolved.

    I have the 8330 as well and to be honest, I think the facebook application that they have is weak...I always end up just using my phones browser to go to the website =/ L0L

    I didn't have a chance yesterday, but when I get time today I'll go through the steps of uninstalling and reinstalling the newer version of the app. Not sure if this will help, but I'll post back on here and let you all know how it goes...

    Thanks for all the great information!

    I removed the facebook app from my phone after installing OS 4.5, found it annoying and hate my screen cluttered with stuff. Having said that, Microsoft don't seem to up with the play - I can't view my hotmail account because the 4.5 browser is not supported! Just gave them the boot and signed up for googlemail and messages get sent direct to my phone woo hoo!
