Blackberry Facebook App

To run Blackberry Facebook App through WiFi follow the steps below:

  1. Go to BlackBerry Beta Zone by clicking here.
  2. If you are already registered, simply Log In. Otherwise click on Register Now.
  3. While registering yourself, you should know your BB’s PIN. You can check this out from Options->Status ->PIN.
  4. Once you have registered, a confirmation email will be sent on your email address. Confirm your registration by clicking on ‘Click here to activate your account’.
  5. Now you have been successfully registered on Blackberry Beta Zone. If you are using your PC for the registration you need to Log in via your BB to BlackBerry Beta Zone to download the Facebook 2.0. (use WiFi). Remember use the Blackberry’s default browser, not a third party browser.
  6. Once the app has been downloaded, it won’t work as it is. You need a few more things to make it work. Open your Beta Zone profile, go to My Account and click on Keycodes.
  7. Click on ‘Get latest keycode‘. A key code will be emailed to you. Make sure that you are using your BB to get key code from your email, because the key code is large enough (actually very large to remember). Copy the key code.
  8. Open the Facebook App, scroll down and paste the key code and click agree.
  9. If your Facebook app is not working at this stage, restart your phone.
  10. Congrats! you can now run Facebook 2.0 App via WiFi.
