Hello all. I am trying to get my facebook application to work. It has not been receiving notifications. I went to facebook site and several are experiencing this with the blackberry. Below is a post I read but I can't figure out what she is talking about on what I can do.
I was having the exact same problem and I went to my list of applications and went to "Email Settings" which is the picture of the letter with that cog on it and it let me change which PIN number my account was programmed to in my phone. So maybe try that?
Solved! Go to Solution.

Try this first:
1) GO TO OPTIONS/ADVANCED OPTIONS/HOUST ROUTING TABLES/menu key/REGISTER NOW.
You will get an email registration verification it will not go to your email account.
As soon as you get the email:
2) Send service books either from the BIS site or from your device. You will get an email verification
on your email address. Do the standard the battery pull and retest.

I had this problem, also. Facebook Support never responded to my inquiry. Shame on them.
Make sure the email you have associated is an email you have connected with your Blackberry.
Then, check all the boxes that you want to receive notifications AS EMAILS on the Facebook Account Notification Settings page. If you're like me, you have all those unchecked, because you don't want to receive an email everytime someone comments on a photo, etc.
Facebook emails your email account the notifications (wall posts, messages, events, etc), your email account sends it to your Blackberry. Once the emailed notifications hit your Blackberry, the Facebook application steals them and you don't have to read them in your Messages list. Instead, you'll receive a Facebook notification for everything you told Facebook to send you.
Because you still get the notification in your online email account, I created a separate email account for all my Facebook notifications. This way my main email isn't cluttered by Facebook and I still get Facebook notifications to my Blackberry.
If you do create an invididual Facebook account for notifications, remember to tell Facebook your new address in Acount Settings. Also, add your new email address as an additional email account on your Blackberry.
Strangely complicated and frustrating, huh?

Thank you so much! That is what happened. Somehow my notifications were changed to OFF. My friend had the same problem, and she checked her settins and she was on off. Once I reset like suggested, I now get Facebook notifications!
Thank you so much! have a wonderful day!!

I really like the new facebook. If you checked your notifications on the facebook settings, and they are all set to on - try removing the battery and allowing your phone to reboot!
Let us know
