It might help to know exactly what the or something is...

 

But, do you have the BlackBerry Data Plan from your carrier?

Re: Facebook Application doesn't work

You need to be subscribed to a data plan in order to use online services like Facebook or MSN or even just getting email and surfing.

If you don't have that...no Facebook for you....sorry.

Which is why I asked the question. 

 

Call your carrier to inquire. Ask about THE BlackBerry Data Plan.
