Facebook Application - cannot connect

I downloaded the Facebook application from the Blackberry site.  Whenever I try to connect I get an error message that says "A connection cannot be established to the Facebook server".  I checked with my company and they told me they don't block the use of any applications on Blackberries.  Any suggestions?

Re: Facebook Application - cannot connect

Yeah you need to muck around with it a bit to get it working.

1. Enable your service for blackberry web, thatll send down that IPPP for 5 click.

2. Delete your desktop IPPP service book, leaving just that other IPPP book.

3. Hard reset. (making sure the device is turned ON when you take the battery out)

Thank you. This is a dumb question, but can you expand on what exactly I have to do? I'm not that swift.

Re: Facebook Application - cannot connect

I have an IPPP for 5 Click already. Is it the IPPP for BIBS that I need to delete and then reset?

Sorry for the late reply, yes delete the ippp for bibs and then pull out battery whilst phone is still turned on..

Re: Facebook Application - cannot connect

I have the same problem too. Could you explain it in more detail - Where do I "enable the service for blackberry web"? Do I open web browser? What's IPPP?

 

Sorry for the dumb quesion Smiley Tongue

 

BTW I'm using Curve 8530.

 

Thanks!

Re: Facebook Application - cannot connect

I have done the above twice and still get the error message when I try to post a picture to FB.  I am able to get messages though!  This is totally frustrating, can you help?

Re: Facebook Application - cannot connect

I have had this problem for a long time, have searched for answers and tried everything. Nothing has worked. smaller pictures sometimes go thru. today I got it to upload a bigger picture by going to the mobile site (not through the facebook app) and uploaded a photo there and it worked. Not easy like it would be if the app worked, but atleast i could finally upload a pic to facebook!

 

Hope this works for you.

Re: Facebook Application - cannot connect

Try downgrading the OS. I have OS5 on Storm 2 and had a similar problem and tried everything untill I downgrade the OS and things went back to normal.

 

I hope this helps.
