Facebook 1.5 - connecting contact initiates phone number request

Hi there

 

Just installed Facebook 1.5 on my Curve 8900 and am trying to manually link some FB friends to BB contacts.  Every time I do this it sends a phone number request to the FaceBook friend when it connects them.  Does anyone know of a way I can turn this off?  I just want to connect, not request a phone number, otherwise I would have selected the "Request phone" option!

 

Thanks

Dom

Dom, many people have noticed that same issue... And I don't know (yet) of a way to turn it off.

 

Perhaps another here does, so let's stay tuned.

Was this addressed with the .32 release?

Oh. I can't SSH into Blackberry devices? CYA!!!!

Yes, the 1.5.0.32 release of FB fixes that issue.

Re: Facebook 1.5 - connecting contact initiates phone number request

JSanders is right - I have tested and 1.5.0.32 does indeed fix this issue.  It now asks if you want to request the phone number or not rather than doing it automatically.
