Re: cant check in to places on facebook app

The 8520 does not have built-in GPS and therefore Facebook Places will not function.

KB25069The Check in button does not display when using Places in Facebook for BlackBerry smartphones 1.9

Re: cant check in to places on facebook app

Did you read the KB article I linked... it has some suggestions.

 

But I haven't seen an 8520 on which it works. It does work on the 8530 which does have GPS built in... so your friend who says it works, might actually have a 8530 model, and they are virtually alike on the outside.

Re: cant check in to places on facebook app

it doesnt matter if the phone has GPS or not on the curve 8520. On the twitter app the phone is still able to determine your location, its all about the software. update to 5.0 if you haven't already.
