It may be obvious that your phone has to be active with a data plan, but you also must have a phone with 64MB of memory with at least 1.3MB available device memory. To get the Facebook application, you must also have version 4.5 of the BlackBerry software or later. Find out your version by opening the “Options,” and then opening “About.”
- Download Facebook to your BlackBerry. You have two choices for downloading Facebook to your BlackBerry. You can download it from the “BlackBerry App World” application you your phone. You can also access the BlackBerry website on any computer and click the “Download it Today” button on the Facebook for BlackBerry page to have a download link sent to your phone via text message.
- Open Facebook on your phone. Wait for the download to finish completely. When you open the application, you will be immediately asked to sign in to your account. Give your account a few minutes to load after logging in before you start using the application.
If you have issues downloading the application one way, try the other way. For example, if you cannot download it from the “BlackBerry App World,” attempt to download it from the text message link. If you have trouble logging into your Facebook account, check your account on a computer to ensure you are entering the correct username or password.
