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

I upgraded fb to the new 2.0 version. At the start fb chat was perfectly working.. From recently it doesn't work although I tried rea-installing it a couple of times. It doesn't indicate any error msg but just keeps loading for awhile and stops without showing any online contacts. :smileysad: let me know if this could be fixed??

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

I just wanted to let you know that I just registered on this forum today as I was searching for a solution for this problem to get back the old facebook.  The new one, 2.0, did not update contact pictures automatically in facebook and I had to go in and do it myself individually by refreshing the BB contact.  The previous version, 1.9., did that and I am happy to have it back.  I followed your instructions and downloaded it and it removed the new version at the reboot.  Thank you so much and I greatly appreciate it.

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

Me too and the posts were very helpful.  I appreciate your help and Adaahu's.  BTW just to confirm it was okay to dowloand it like I did without uninstalling the 2.0 version correct?  It seems like it uninstalled that in the process and put the older one in its place.  I wasn't sure though as I read somewhere in this forum that someone also did it but that uninstalled 2.0 first.  Just checking if the way I did, as did many I believe, was okay and would cause no future problems.  Thanks again!

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

Yes it is okay. I didn't uninstall my 2.0 either and it uninstalled itself and my old facebook was reinstalled during the process and I have no problem up to now and I haven't heard of anyone having any problems either.I think it's safe to say it's all good thanks to Adaahu.

Thank you so much nicois.  Also, in regards to contacts and facebook pictures, is it better to have facebook do them automatically or to connect manually with a blackberry contact?  Some contacts for some reason don't match up with facebook even though they have the same facebook and contact name so I guess you could do it manually by connecting to a BB contact.  I found two articles on it but not sure of the difference other than automatic or manual.  I guess its easier to just leave them alone and let facebook do its thing automatically.

For some reason not all of mine FB contacts sync with facebook when I checked it off.  Not sure why, but I guess I could go in and connect them manually.

Yes, try connecting them manually and see how that works out. Let me know if it worked.
