Re: how can I get back an older version of Facebook on my blackberry.

How did you resolve the zip files?  I am having the same problem.  Any help appreciated.

Re: how can I get back an older version of Facebook on my blackberry.

The files you guys want to download are the OTA ones. Go to the link on your phone, then select the appropriate OTA link depending on your OS version.

@ bldejardins, if you're on OS version 5.0.0.1015, that's the most up to date official OS for the Verizon Storm2. Another carrier has released 5.0.0.1082, but it can be a tricky installation (its the first OS I had big troubles loading). But realistically, it doesn't make a huge difference.

All of this said, the new Facebook 2.0 is a big change and does take some learning on how to use it, but it is nice when you do get used to it. And for those who like to use Facebook Chat, you can with the latest version.

Anyhow, best of luck!

Re: how can I get back an older version of Facebook on my blackberry.

It works!  Thank you.  For us old timers you have to load the software directly from your phone ...duh! I was trying thru my laptop but it worked like a charm when I figured it out.  adaahu ROCKS!

Re: how can I get back an older version of Facebook on my blackberry.

My problem about Faceboo is solved after installing the new version of Blackberry Messenger. I don't know the connection between them but maybe it's the reboot which was useful. Thank you for your attention.

A reboot will solve 95% of the problems encountered with your phone, so yes it probably was the reboot that helped.  Never be afraid to yank that battery out whenever your phone starts acting up.  :smileyhappy:

Re: how can I get back an older version of Facebook on my blackberry.

Im using Bold 9650 with 5.0.0.732 OS. I update Facebook - I see it (Facebook 2.0.0.37) in my applications/add-ons listing under Options. I don't see it anywhere on the device - no on the home page, not in any folder,not in Downloads, not hidden. If I go to Application Center I see that I have the option to downgrade to prior version but no icon anywhere. Suggestions anyone? Thanks!
