Problem with Facebook app 1.6

I wonder if anyone could help. I have recently (yesterday) upgraded my Blackberry Pearl with version 1.6 of Facebook and now can now longer log into the application on my phone due to the following error:

"Could not connect because a data service is not available. Please try again later. If this continues please contact your service provider for support."


This is a work provided handset, so uses enterprise server, but version 1.5 used to work fine, and things like msn messenger and the myspace application also work. I have re-installed a number of times and followed up with the battery pull. Is there anything else I can do? Or does anyone know where to get version 1.5 so I can rollback to that?!!

OK - this has been fixed!! Contacted Vodafone and they told me that my BlackBerry hadn't been provisioned for internet access. They did something their end, and bingo, application is working like a charm!! Not really sure it was worth all the hassle but there you go.
