This is really sad for me. I work with BB platfrorm since 2007, i am tired to discuss with other platform devs/fanboys the last 2 years, but with this I think I give up.

Facebook has deprecated their old like methods and created a new method.
See this article:
"Starting today we will no longer approve custom like actions. Apps that currently use a custom like action must migrate to use the built-in like action in the next 90 days. We have updated the Platform Roadmap to reflect this change."
Is that what you are dealing with?

Please take a look to url in FB issue here:
You will find that we are using "display=touch" already. Even if we use "wap" it is redirected to "touch" now.
Fill free to reproduce issue and flag it on FB page.

I actually meant to direct my last comment to lakshman9687, because I was wondering if he was using the depricated like method in the article. I am aware of the OAuth non-clickable problem mentioned in the link you sent.

I do not recommend changing the user agent string to iPhone in BrowserField as a solution. Although the login page delivered may work and is actually loaded much faster, it seems not to work on all BB devices and if they change the iPhone login page in the future it may not work at all. I have found that while one user agent string fixes the problem on say the 9900, it wouldn't work on let's say a 9780.

I mentioned this to Product owner as well:
- Some devices/OS don't work yet
- This is weird to see iphone login page on the blackberry
But he is in the point of that we fix at least for some users.
Also the ticket is not assigned yet for resolving. And this is after almost two weeks.

I had luck with Safari desktop user agents strings. I like using safari desktop over Safari iphone because facebook doesn't show "get facebook for your iphone."
If you eager enough to get OAuth working while FB is fixing the issue, I think you will find that you can find a working Safari user agent string for most, if not all, devices. The problem is that I couldn't find one Safari user agent string won't work on all devices, so you would need logic to pick the right user agent string for the device being used. This is a very horrible task, but I think it would work.

Yippee.. Facebook noticed!!!
Now let's hope they come to their senses and bump this up to "high" priority!
