Turning on 'Location Services'

I am trying to use Facebook on my mobile and be able to "check in" as they call it.  Basically means when I post it will give my nearest location for instance.  My phone keeps telling me it I can't because......"Location Services is Disabled. Please turn on Location Services under the device Options"  I have investigated this every way I know how and no where have I found anything about Location Services.   Does anyone know what this means and how I turn it on?  Thank you!!

Re: Turning on 'Location Services'

Hey Bina29,

Welcome to the BlackBerry® Support Community Forums.

 

To better assist you, what model BlackBerry smartphone and software version are you using?  If you are using the BlackBerry smartphone 9550 as listed on your profile here is how to enable GPS:

Re: Turning on 'Location Services'

I have another model phone, a Curve 9360, I cannot find location services on my phone and therefore, cannot "check in" with Facebook. I've gone to options in Blackberry and can't find GPS and also in Facebook cannot find Location Services.

I have enabled everything, Nada.

 

Thanks in advance if anyone can help.
