    Is it just me? Or are the status updates no longer working? I mean when I hit ‘refresh’ it loads status updates that say ’19 hours ago.’ When I click ‘view highlights’ – the same thing… kind of outdated my many many hours.

    All the application permissions are allowed, I’ve cleared the cache, logged out, logged back in, and even did a device reset.

    I did not have this issue with previous versions.

    It should defeniately provide you updates in reasonable time.
    Kindly check following things.
    -On your BlackBerry – Go to Options- Advanced Options – Default Services and try changing the Calender(CICAL) and CMIME
    – Go to Facebook.com settings on your PC and enable blackberry notifications (It’s in Settings – Notifications- and look at the bottom of the page)
    – After that – on your BlackBerry – Go to Options-Advanced Options-Host Routing Table-Press “MENU” button-click on Register Now and test
    – If above fails – then you need to uninstall Facebook on your BlackBerry (Options – Advanced Options – Appllications) and install again
    – I am sure you have the latest OS on your BlackBerry
    Let me know how it goes. If the problem persist – Let me know your BlackBerry Model- OS and Carrier

    In your directions:

    “On your BlackBerry – Go to Options- Advanced Options – Default Services and try changing the Calender(CICAL) and CMIME”

    What do I change it to? I have my email addresses to choose from, and Facebook.

    It was already defaulted to Facebook.

    If you already have Facebook as default then leave it as is. Also make sure your default browser is set to “Internet Browser”. Try reinstalling the Facebook again and see what happens. Other then above there aren’t any other options/settings on the device for Facebook. Let me know how it goes.

    I can not “like” a status with this upgrade, or a photo actually. And can not view when someone likes a pic or status of mine. Also doesn’t show Mr updates other than just status. What is the deal?

    Hi would yyou mind stating which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m going to stwrt my own blog in the near future but I’m having a tough time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask iss because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking
    for something completely unique. P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I
    had to ask!

    Set up a calendar next to your computer screen, if possible, so you can keep track of
    dates and deadlines. Sites like flippa offer a good
    way to make some money doing this. If users have a dedicated workers at your
    location, they can often replace the part in only a few minutes and grab the
    equipment up and running again.
