Any way to sync Blackberry Facebook with Inbox on Facebook website?

Hi everyone! I am running Facebook 1.7 on Blackberry Bold 9700, OS 5.0.0.442.
  
I am so frustrated with how blackberry facebook app handles communication via facebook! It completely fails to take advantage of the fact that the facebook website maintains its own copy of all sent and received messages. As a result you can't see any messages that are in your facebook account from before the time the app was installed.
  
Furthermore, when you delete a message from within facebook app,
  a) the corresponding email notification DOES NOT get deleted from your email account
  b) and the corresponding message DOES NOT get deleted from your facebook inbox on the facebook website
 
...which essentially forces you to do double or triple maintenance of all facebook communication! To be fair, there is an option not to "leave email notification messages on mail server", which would probably solve a) above, but b) would have to be done manually still.
 
Furthermore, unchecking the option "Connect your facebook account with Blackberry Message application" doesn't do anything for me! Even with that option unchecked, my facebook app continues to take over any incoming facebook notifications in my email account.
 
Did anyone find any good ways around these issues or maybe a better app alternative altogether??
Best Regards,
Alexey

I don't know any better solutions than what you have suggested.

 

You might try the moble Facebook site, some users really do prefer it over the Facebook for BlackBerry application.
