This answer was rated:

Wheni try to get on fb thru safari on my iphone 3 it logs in but then blinks off. I can get on the internet but not fb. i cant download fb app because iphone 3 does not support ios 4.3 so safari is the only way i know how t go.

CompExpert :

if you have ios 4.3, do into app store and download chrome browser then used it to go to facebook.

let me know if that doesn't work by reply in here. thank you

Customer: When I tried to download fb app on my iPhone 3 it said I needed iOS 4.3 which I think I have 4.1. I did some research and it seems you can't do the upgrade on this phone. A friend suggested I search facely hd by g-whizz! Apps. I am also tech challenged lol so alot of this is blah blah blah
