Good luck.

If you are talking about the Yahoo messenger from blackbery for Yahoo it will NOT work. Cingulr has NO PLANS to offer the service book for this and that is what you need for it to work. Yes, yahoo im will work with Cingular BUT you have to purchase a third party app. I have talked to them a few times and it is the same story, "go buy a third party app, we will not be offering the Yahoo IM from RIM"
Currently use: Torch 9800 (unless I cant get the WiFi to auto connect, then I am getting a Galaxy S Android)
