True enough...but all services depend on your data plan. And it certainly wouldn't be the first time that a carrier made an error, now would it? Call them. Don't let them fob you off. After all, you are paying them for services that they are not delivering.

as you may know, when a user connects to facebook, he connects to a facebook server.
Sice there are so many users across the planet, all users do not connect to the same server.
There is a replication mecanism, that is provided by Akamai. That is the reason why your facebook client is trying to connect to the FB...cdn....AkamaiHD server.
You can now understand why, using the same Facebook installation, one account can connect, and not another one.
Tha being said, your BlackBerry device has noticed that the server uses a X.509 security certificate that it should not (a X.509 certificate can only be used by the servers it is designed for, in this case a24.e.akamai. ).
This is in my opinion not a pirate or hack action, but rather a misconfiguration on Akamai servers.
You will have to wait a few more days for the Akamai IT people to notice the configuration is incorrect... and fix it

i had the same problem. It started when I changed my facebook account security settings by doing "Account - Account Settings - Account Security - click Change. Check box (secure browsing)"
I have moved back to the previous account security profile, and no longer face this problem while accessing facebook from blackberry. I don't know what impact this will have on the security though!

"You are attempting to open a secure connection to fbcdn-photos-a.akamaihd.net but the server’s certificate contains a different domain name a248.e.akamai.net"
Apparently there is nothing wrong with the BB Facebook application. It seems to be that Facebook moved a number of the profiles and pictures to a different address eg. from photos-a.ak.facebook.com to fbcdn-photos-a.akamaihd.net but did not update the certificates correctly.
The good news is that your BB will not ask for the certificate if you are not accessing through a secure (https) connection. So log into your Facebook account through the web and navigate to Account/Account Settings/Account Security and make sure that "Secure Browsing (https)" is unchecked. With normal http access the annoying certificate alerts should stop popping up on your BB fb application.

When I'm trying to log in on my Facebook account with my Facebook application on my Blackberry appears something: You are attempting to open a secure connection to fbcdn-photos-a.akamaihd.net but the server’s certificate contains a different domain name. And after that I have some options to choose: Continue, Close connection & View Certificate. Any option I choose it's the same thing. I want to say that I can't see any photo on my phone on Facebook and this is very embarassing. I tried to uninstall and reinstall the FB application on my phone but it's the same thing. I'd like to say that I tried even the Security option and disabled secure browsing. Please, answer me as soon as it possible. Thank you!
I'm not the only one with this problem. I must say that when I log in on my computer, I can see the photos, only on my Blackberry I can't and only on Facebook. Please fix this problem. Thank you.

hello maican_dana, the explanation is easy but sad, and the fix is easy.
here is the explanation (long but each line is simple). The message means that:
So in the end, it is Facebook's fault, who is not using the correct SSL certificate to make the pictures secure.
and now the resolution.
That being said, for item 1 above :
Again I would like to point out that the Facebook app for BlackBerry behaves the way it is expected to, in fact everyone would blame it if it allowed to use that wrong certificate.
On the other hand, I fail to understand how such a big company as facebook can make such security mistakes, especially the fact that this issue has been going on for several semesters already.
