Re: Facebook not working on Curve

For starters the most current version of FB does have a connection issue for which RIM did not address to its fullest extent.

To get an older version of there is 2 things you can do, but I don't think they will hold, cause on my phone I was forced to update.
1) if you did a back up on BlackBerry desktop then you might be able to snag the older version of Facebook from there.

2) the other option is to do a search and see if there is a web site that has a independant download of Facebook that will not direct you to BlackBerry world.

Keep in mind that you could download an older version but it might not let you use the older version thru blackberry servers. The servers forced me to update to the most current version. The same may happen with anything older version you download.
