    Question Facebook 1.5 with VZW Storm™ 9530

    Advertisement



    Is anyone else having this problem: Whenever I install FaceBook v1.5 on my Storm, it drains my battery like crazy. I even tried turning off the cell connection to see if maybe it was just my bad signal, but my phone still drained really quickly. I even tried wiping and doing a fresh install. I discovered it was this application because I slowly added on an application, one-by-one and I noticed the drain after I added on FaceBook. My battery seems to get really hot. I have my phone in a holster with a magnet in it, to shut off the screen, and I tried just putting the phone in my pocket, but had the same problem.

    Am I the only one with this dillema?

    I can't say I have that exact problem but if I may, I recommend just using Facebook's mobile site as opposed to their App. For me, it's just easier and more friendly to navigate. I know that doesn't answer your question but thats what i'm thinkin.

    I dont' mind doing that at all, but I like how it links the calendar events on my phone and I can link up my contacts and keep everything up to date. That's why I really want 1.5, otherwise, I'd just stick to 1.3.

    I dumped FaceBook on my Storm.
    A literal "drag" on the BB.

    how often were you using it, or you talking about it just running in the background was draining your battery? I haven't seen any issues with it on mine. What OS are you using?

    I checked also, no luck on my searching. All sites link you to the blackberry.com/facebook site. Which only downloads the newest version. What is your facebook app doing that is causing you problem?
