Hi there!

 

I don't believe that the mobile FB app includes the chat feature. You can write on their wall or send a message, but I am not finding the chat feature to be included. It also is not on the FB mobile website -- so I believe it is limited to the full website only.

 


If you need more assistance, then please return to these forums (http://supportforums.blackberry.com/rim/) and register an account so that we can provide you with direct assistance.

Cheers!

the "Facebook for BlackBerry" application does not support facebook chat.
but other applications like IM+ do support facebook chat.

Hi Xandrex,

 

How would I download IM+ (or any other application that supports FB Chat) on to my BB?

I have looked into eBuddy, but it seems they don't have a Blackberry app.

I downloaded the trial version of BeejiveIM and even though they say it has the FB Chat component, it does not seem to be included/supported.

Hi and Welcome to the Forums!

 

What part of that message is unclear? You contract, from your wireless service provider, for all of your services. The message is saying that the level of those services you have is not adequate for Facebook. So contact your carrier, as it says, to upgrade your plan (at whatever fees they will charge, btw).

 

Good luck!
