Facebook 2.9.1

Facebook has released a new version of the official Facebook Java app.  Facebook didn't bother to post a changlog so I have no Idea what new features, if any, are included.

Facebook bills this app as "Facebook for Every Phone" .  In spite of the name it doesn't work on many phones including my Motorola Rambler and Motorola i776. It installs and starts on both but the submit button on the log in form doesn't work. so there is no way to log in  The previous 2.3,  2.5.1 and 2.8.1  versions didn't work on my phones but they did on the Incognito, Juno, Factor, Rant and Seek, so I suspect this one will too.

Type: Freeware
Vendor:  Facebook
Data Connection Required: Yes
Minimum Java ME profile: MIDP 2.0
Screen Size: All
Reported working on: Nokia C1-01, LG Rumor Reflex (one person says it doesn't work, one says it does but is unstable), samsung corby gts3653, Samsung gtc3530
Reported NOT working on:  LG-A290, LG c105, LG ke990, Motorola Rambler, Motorola Theory, Motorola i776, Motorola i465, Nokia x2-02, Sanyo Innuendo, Nokia X2-01

  1. I need help to download facebook to my samsungGTC3300K,I try all version but still dont work and ask connection network is required

    • There are several possibilities;
      1: If you can't download the facebook app from this site or https://d.facebook.com/install then your operator is blocking app downloads.

      2. If you can download the app file to your phone but it gives a connection error when it's installing or when you try run it then either your operator or government is blocking Facebook or some settings on your phone are wrong. See Solving Opera Mini and UC Browser Connection Problems for help researching and solving the settings issue. The information in that article applies to all apps that use the network not just Opera Mini and UC Browser.

  2. does its work on galaxy S3????..if so then how I can download it but it doesn't work??? please quick reply

    • Facebook for Android phones including the Galaxy S III is available in the Play Store.

      The apps on BoostApps are for basic non-smartphones, they do not work on Android phones

  14. During launch it keeps on asking for network access til it loops out

    • When it asks for network access choose "allow always", "allow this session' or similar. If it doesn't give those options try downloading the app from Facebook at http://d.fb.me/3ux using your phone browser.

    • Go to http://m.facebook.com/download.php?_rdr with you phone browser and install the app from there if it's available.

      If that doesn't work try un-insralling the old version of Facebook before trying to install this one

  27. Like

  28. i downloaded the app on my rumor reflex but it dosent have an upload photo tab, and when i tried to upgrade it said error 906 missing midlet?

    • The Rumor Reflex is not a phone that's officially supported by Facebook. That's why you can't upgrade and also probably why you can't upload photos either. Do other features work?

    • i downloaded the opera mini so i can upload pics. the phone works fine its just the user interface is so bland. it would be nice if i could install themes on it or add some color to it.

  29. I already downloaded this app on my Nokia 500, but i dont have the icon or menu for uploading photos unlike the facebook 2.9.1 which is installed in nokia 6630 old model of my brother.

  30. Does not work on Motorola Theory.

    • my phone is Nokia c1-01

    • 1. Highlight the application in the list of apps.
      2. Press "options".
      3. Click "App. Access".

  39. Plz sir help me my handset nokia x2-02 facebook new 2.9.1 not supoort plz working yours apps.

  40. Facebook tells another lie.
    After five minutes of waiting for this app to load on my Sanyo Innuendo, I promptly removed it.
    Btw. Clicking Facebook's install now link .jad link just takes me to a page that says that they do not have a working version for my phone.

  41. i get this error message on the LG rumor reflex at just the 100% mark. Download failed. Issue has been reported. Please try again later. 905 Attribute mismatch (midlet-permissions-opt)

    • I might have a fix for that error. Can you try re-installing Facebook by clicking the link below in your mobile browser:
      Test A: http://boostapps.com/files/FB291a.jad

      If that one doesn't work, try this one
      Test B: http://boostapps.com/files/FB291b.jad

      Please let me know if either one works. That will help me to serve apps that work on the Rumor Reflex in the future
