One of the great new additions to Facebook for BlackBerry smartphones 1.9 is the ability to let your friends know where you are using Facebook Places. But before you get started, there’re a few simple steps you need to take to allow the application to find your location and check you in to your favorite Places.
By default, the option Share my Location with Facebook is disabled (unchecked) and may also appear as a non-editable/grayed checkbox. This option will remain grayed out until the app is able to determine that you’ve allowed Facebook to use Places and you’ve accepted the Places disclaimer.
Note: If Location Services isn’t available, your wireless carrier mayn’t be allowing GPS access. Please contact your wireless provider for more information.
If you see the message “Your location is temporarily not available” when attempting to use Places in Facebook for BlackBerry smartphones, check out KB24970.
