By Techwalla Contributor

You can use Facebook Mobile to send text messages to your phone, receive notifications for friend requests, messages, wall posts, and other updates from your Facebook friends. You can also update your status, search for phone numbers, or upload photos and videos from your phone. Here's how to set it up.

Things You'll Need

  • Facebook Account
  • Cell Phone

Step 1

Log in to your Facebook account. From your Facebook home page click settings.

Step 2

From the settings menu, click the "Mobile" tab. Enter your mobile phone number, your Carrier, and click "Activate." Your activation code will immediately be sent to your cell phone.

Step 3

You will receive a text message from Facebook. The message will show, "Facebook Mobile Confirmation" along with your confirmation code. Enter confirmation code and here's what you will see: "Confirmed! Facebook Mobile is now activated. Text FBOOK (32665) to update your status. You can also receive texts when people poke, message, wall post, or friend you. The Facebook Mobile application has also been added to your Facebook profile."

Step 4

You'll get one more confirmation text showing where to text your Facebook status. Text your status to 32665. Check your FB account and within seconds your message appears on your FB page as a comment, for example: "Jane Doe" Test to fb. 2 minutes ago - Comment.
