Re: Facebook 1.6

If one has to get FB 1.6 by upgrading the BB OS, I would still like to know how to upgrade to 4.5 on a Mac. Is there a solution out there??

Please note that, due to my firm's archaic IT policies, I am unable to upgrade my OS to 4.5. Surely a solution can be found for myself (and the countless others like me) to be able to use the facebook app on our blackberries with OS 4.2.

 

It should also be noted that, not only am I unable to use the latest version (1.6), but I am currently unable to use any past version (as I cannot locate an OTA download link for any previous versions).

 

Please help!

Unfortunately, T-Mobile does not offer the v4.5 software upgrade for the Blackberry 8800.  What are we supposed to do? Also, the website for the Blackberry facebook app says that it is supported for the 4.2 software.  Why are we being told we have to update our OS?

Re: Facebook 1.6

Here's a link to the old facebook version 1.5.0.32, just make sure you delete the facebook app, then open up DM.  It worked for me.

Re: Facebook 1.6

Thank you for the link. However, I am only able to install programs through an OTA link. Does anyone have this for v1.5?

Re: Facebook 1.6

If you uninstall 1.5 and reinstall 1.6, its the same as a new install right? still doen't work.  very frustrating..
