Facebook icon problem

I just activated my pearl after having it off for 6 months and so I updated facebook and now the ico doesn't appear.  I've deleted it and reinstalled it 5 times and still no icon.  How do I get the icon to re-appear?  I'm going crazy trying to figure this out.

Re: Facebook icon problem

I'm having the same problem. The app was working fine (I had version 0.5) and now there is 1.6 so I decided to upgrade.


Icon is not there even when I hit show all. I've taken the battery out, uninstalled, re-installed. Nothing. It comes up in the application list, but there is no way to launch it. 


I think I need a newer OS, but Verizon doesn't offer an Os upgrade over the air and I have a mac.


I'm looking for an older link now, but am having a tough finding it.

Re: Facebook icon problem

I had the same problem upgrading my Facebook app. After several attempts I finally went to the Facebook mobile site and clicked the link to download the new version from there. The only thing I did different on my last attempt was I didn't uninstall the version I wanted to replace first. During the installation process it prompted me to replace the current version. Even though the versions were the same, I clicked "yes" to replace the "old" version with the "new" one and when finished I had my Facebook icon back.


Hope this hepls!
