Re: blackberry 9780 facebook/GPRS issue

Hi,

I bought a new Blackberry 9780. After reading the previous posts I came to know that this requires a data plan from carrier to have access to facebook, twitter, google talk etc apps as this requires BlackBerry push technology. But I cannot able to access BlackBerry apps world from wifi also. My doubt is can I able to access BlackBerry apps world to download necessary apps from wifi network or this also requires BlackBerry data plan from carrier. Reply is really required. Thank you.
Thanks and Regards,
Arka Mitra

Problem Solved for me 

i had the same issue , all i did was update the facebook app , the old app did not support connecting without having a certain service from the provider , however i navigated to facebook page using the browser , and found a download link for "facebook for blackberry" on the facebook login page , downloaded it and now its working fine
