Cannot reinstall Facebook

My facebook app quit sending me notifications, so I uninstalled it with the intent of reinstalling it so that all the settings would go back.  I have done this before with no problem.

 

Today, I went to reinstall, and I don't even have the option to.  Any other app in my 'uninstalled' file gives me the option to reinstall, but not Facebook.

 

Thoughts?  What to do?

Re: Cannot reinstall Facebook

Go to your applications list and delete the app.  From your homescreen, go to Options>Device>Application Management and look for it in the list.  Highlight it, press the menu key and select Delete.  Next, from your phone's browser type www.blackberry.com/facebook to download it again.

Re: Cannot reinstall Facebook

Well, Facebook doesn't show up under Application Mgmt. Very strange. It is showing up in my App World as 'uninstalled', and is the lone 'uninstalled' app that won't give me the option to reinstall. Hmmm.....

Re: Cannot reinstall Facebook

my son was having the same problem a month ago,  and it worked for him, but I was too lazy to delete/re-install until today.

Okay, so it's not in your Application list.  That means that it truly is gone from your phone.

 

Did you try re-installing it from your browser, as I suggested?  Smiley Happy

Re: Cannot reinstall Facebook

When I click the link to reinstall, I am taken back to My App World, where I'm told that Facebook is 'uninstalled'. And again with the no option to reinstall.

Very strange!

Re: Cannot reinstall Facebook

That is what mine did. I even cleared the browser history in case it was holding something. It still doesn't give the re-install option. Since there are two of us, I am sure it is not operator error!
