Re: How to get Facebook Places working on your blackberry

Really? That's all I had to do? I had only enabled places, but not "have friends see you checked in same place as you" and once I checked that it worked! Thanks!

 go to Options, Advanced Options, GPS, then under GPS Services I had to change mine from "E911 only" to "Location On" Also the first time you use maps, make sure you are in a clear location where it can locate a satellite...... THIS STEP WORKED FOR ME..  I TYPED IN MY ADDRESS SO THAT IT WOULD START THE SATELLITE.... THEN I WENT BACK TO FACEBOOK AND SURE ENOUGH IT FINALLY WAS ABLE TO "LOCATE ME".....   HOPE IT WORKS!!!

Re: How to get Facebook Places working on your blackberry

Chelsie, if you have a model 8520, there is no GPS support and therefore the Places will not work, except MAYBE through the cell tower triangulation to find your general location (within several hundred or thousand meters).
