Hi, I've been looking through the forum and haven't found any solutions that quite work for me.
I've got a Verizon BB Pearl 8130 using OS 4.3 App World 1.0. This phone is for personal use.
I used to have the original version of Facebook which had no problems, but was pretty rudimentary. I tried downloading it through App World and "Run" it with no success--no menu icon. I then tried a hard battery pull with no success.
Then I tried downloading it from the website: http://www.blackberry.com/facebook/mobiledownload which prompted me for a reboot, which I did, without success--no icon.
Can anyone help me out?

Uninstall the application.
Go to Options - Advanced Options - Applications
Find the application name, hit menu button on device and select "Delete"
After that reboot device and install the application again.

Thank you for the suggestion.
I tried all those things in that order without success. I'm still in the same position as before with the Facebook application in the Applications list, but no icon on the main menu. Any other ideas? Am I doing something wrong?

Just installed facebook on 8130 with device software 188.8.131.52 and get the same problem.
Facebook icon does not show up.
I opened the device log
and have seen this error message:
I checked the developer documentation and there is stated that you need device software version 4.6.0 or newer to run this application.
Try to update your device software.
Connect your device via USB-cable to the computer.
Launch Internet Explorer
Open this address: http://na.blackberry.com/eng/services/devices/
Click on "Update Now" button
When update process completed open Options - About on your device.
If your device software version is less than 4.6 then facebook application (version 1.5) won't run on your device.

Do the following:
On your device launch Browser and navigate the address: http://www.blackberry.com/facebook
It will install Facebook 1.6
It works on my device with device software 4.5

I'm having the same problem.
I'm running OS4.3 so the 1.5 version won't even work. I originally had facebook 0.5 (downloaded it 1.5 years ago never upgraded) and it worked fine. I can't upgrade my OS though. I don't have a PC and I have Verizon who doesn't have the over the air upgrades.
I've searched and searched but can't find any old versions of the facebook app. Do you know where any are? Or do I have some other hope of upgrading my OS without access to a PC.
