A wierd problem with Facebook for BB (v1.8.0.49)

[ Edited ]


The pictures of my facebook friends is no longer shown in in my BB contact since I have downloaded facebook's latest software for blackberry. Everything else seems to work fine.


I have already done the following


(1) Went to facebook > pressed the menu key > went to options


Within options, I have checked all three options -- (a) Blackberry Calendar application (checked), (b) Blackberry Message Application (checked) and (c) Blackberry contacts application (checked)


There is another option towards the end of the page: Update existing photos in your blackberry contact list with facebook friend profile photos. I have checked this too.


(2) I have tried uninstalling and installing the software three times. It didn't work.


(3) Tried to link people manually. The photos still not appeared.


(4) Restarted the devise after removing the battery but in vain.


(5) Cleared Cache, the option available in facebook but it didn't help.


(6) uninstalled Google Sync thinking there could be a conflict and things are still the same.


Everything worked well when I had facebook v1.6 and v1.7. Can someone suggest what can be possibly Wrong?


Here are device details

Country: India

Service Provider: Vodafone
