Facebook® for BlackBerry® smartphones is designed to allow BlackBerry® smartphone users to automatically save Facebook® events to the Calendar application on the BlackBerry smartphone when the response to the event is Yes or Maybe.

To turn on the Facebook event invitation option, complete the following steps:

  1. Open the Facebook for BlackBerry smartphones application.
  2. Press the Menu key.
  3. Click Options.
  4. Select the BlackBerry Calendar application check box.
  5. Press the Escape key.
  6. When prompted to save changes, click Yes.

Note: If the Facebook event is updated after it has been added to the Calendar application on the BlackBerry smartphone, the event in the Calendar is automatically updated as well.

CollapseAdditional Information

If the the Facebook event option is turned on, on the first login, all existing and pending events from that day forward are added to the Calendar application on the BlackBerry smartphone. This only happens on the first login or after all data has been deleted from the BlackBerry smartphone.
