How to disable Facebook Chat on iPhone 3G?

After the (fairly) recent iPhone Facebook update, I can't seem to find the option to turn off my FB Chat. I get messages and chats but I don't reply because I don't know I am getting them. How do I turn off FB Chat on my iPhone but not on the desktop version? (Also -- there is no "Go Offline" button on the FB Chat for the iPhone on this updated version.)

Tap the "Facebook" symbol on your iPhone's screen, and tap the "Grid" symbol at the top of the application. Tap the "Chat" icon, and swipe your finger against the contact's conversation tab to the left. Tap "Delete" to clear the chat from the Facebook's chat section.

I wish I was able to post a pic of my iPhone screen to show what I'm doing -- when I do as you instructed, I get to the Chat icon and I swipe my finger to the left....and all I'm getting is my list of contacts to chat with. When I try to swipe the individual contacts.... all I'm getting is a chat box. I'm not able to delete anything.

worked for me!!! thank you!!!!!! once you tap chat, it shows your contacts. I just swiped my finger across the 'wheel' at the top right and it brought up a box and asked if I wanted to disable chat. worked like a charm. Thanks so much
