    Through a program at work, I am now using the Trophy! I picked this out of multiple choices. Now, how do I simply download a Facebook application? I have Facebook on People, but I want the actual application? Thanks, and happy to be part of the group!

    Hi there! Just go to Marketplace on your phone and search for the app.

    I have done what you both are saying and nothing comes up. One of my coworkers said I may have to sync it with Zune?

    After downloading, did you check your apps on your list? You will not see the Facebook tile on your home screen until you move it there.

    go into the marketplace on the phone. Click on the magnifying glass at the bottom of the screen. In the box and type Facebook. It will probably be the first option that drops down. Touch Facebook, then touch install. It will begin downloading. You may have to back all the way out and then look in your app list. You will see a bar showing the install process at some point. Once it downloads and installs, simply open the app and log in.

    Aren't you the same wireless vet that was so helpful with Verizon info a few months ago? Now you have the Trophy and don't know much about downloading apps. I think this is really odd. No wonder no one at Verizon knows much about WP7.

    If I'm wrong about this, my apologies.

    I just checked Marketplace on my phone and Facebook pops up immediately when I type in the search. Strange.

    When I do the search, I enter Facebook, the first choice that comes up is a "Market Place Search", I downloaded that application, and entered Facebook in that, it does take me to a Facebook app, but there is no install choice

    Ok, click on that Facebook app and on the bottom of that page you will see 'install'.

    You are doing it through Zune correct? If so, make Zune full screen.

    I just did a search, and that Marketplace Search app does come up in the list, but the Facebook app is above it. It's the first app in the list.

    This is so frustrating...im tapping the Facebook app on the Facebook symbol and every where in between and nothing happens.

    You're tapping it where? Meaning, are you still in the marketplace, or have you downloaded it?

    Ok, from the way you describe "tapping the Facebook logo and nothing's happening", I am picturing you on the Details page for the app in the Marketplace. Says "details" and "reviews" at the top. Big Facebook logo with the star ratings right under it?

    If that's where you are, you should see a big rectangle at the bottom of the screen with the word "install" in it. Tap it. :)

    There is no install button underneath. The star ratings are to the side, the reviews are underneath, but absolutely positively no install. I have seen the install on other apps I have downloaded. Not on this

    And again, I am able to view the Facebook app in the Market Search app, but it in no way shows up under the general search option under the market.

    Here we go:
    1 (Home.jpg): open Marketplace
    2 (Marketplace.jpg): tap search button
    3 (MP Search.jpg): type 'facebook' in the box and tap it on the list that pops up
    4 (Select.jpg): tap on the facebook app
    5 (Install.jpg): tap install button

    You may be taken to another screen with a button that says buy or something like that. Don't worry, Facebook is free.

    You're done! You'll get taken to the app list and you can watch it install.

    Enjoy.

    Edit: I posted this before I saw your last 2 posts. Does it still have the share button? If so, then you might already have it installed.
