Find friends from the Facebook® for BlackBerry® smartphones Application

I cannot seem to get this to show up on my FB Page although my wife with a 8330 had no issues and we downloaded and installed same time same way.   Anyone have any clue as it should be on the FB Page and I know it is linked

Re: Find friends from the Facebook® for BlackBerry® smartphones Application

Hi,

I do not mingle my BB and Facebook contacts, here is my Facebook PC screen.

What do you see, or what do you think you should be seeing?

 

If I read correctly, merging you FM and BB contacts would result in one main list, without an identifier.

Let me know

Thanks,

Re: Find friends from the Facebook® for BlackBerry® smartphones Application

HI,

 

The link contains not only the setup articles but links to the error conditions and resolutions.

One question, have you upgraded the TOUR or did you load your application data from the previous phone to it.

Check the following. At the home screen, select options, advanced options, applications, check that only one version of

Facebook is loaded, and that it is version 1.6.0.21

Thanks,
