    I have a 3G non jail broken or unlocked. Facebook was acting up so I uninstalled it in hopes that would help. When I try to reinstall it it says, 'installed', and I can't click the button. I do not currently have a computer, so I can't hook it up to one. I've searched this forum for about an hour, and found one thread similar to this one but his was a JB phone so the tips were a little different.
    What I have done already:
    Let the phone sit off for about 30 minutes, turned it back on and nothing.
    Went to settings and enabled then disabled restrictions.
    Searched for Facebook, and nothing.
    Emailed the app to myself to download, but was taked to the same 'installed' screen.
    In settings it shows FB but no symbol for it.
    This started yesterday morning so it doesn't seem like a wait a few hours type of thing.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance

    Reset all settings and maybe try a hard restore by holding home and power for
    10 secs.

    No worries it all sounds the same to me lol. No go with the hard reset tho. Thanks tho I do appreciate it. I'm going to see if I can email FB and get their help. Maybe try Apple as well.

    If there are any other suggestions out there please post up.

    I have a suggestion. Plug it into iTunes, and sync the FaceBook app back on.

    Yes, if you're not careful.

    Before explaining how to sync properly, logout of the app store on your phone. Then login to the app store and try to DL FB.
