What specifically did you download to get AOL IM on your 7250? I don't see this model as an option, probably because it's new.

Two options to obtain the all-networks version of Verichat (AIM/ICQ/MSN/Yahoo):
  1. You have to download Verichat 1.78 for BlackBerry Desktop via:
    http://www.verichat.com/verichat_bby/

    -or-
  2. You can download Verichat 1.91 Over-The-Air by entering this web address into your BlackBerry browser:
    http://www.verichat.com/ota/VeriChat.jad
Handango did not allow PDAapps to post a version that had all 4 networks, because of some kind of deal they have with AOL.

Please note, if you upgrade over-the-air, you should be aware of the following: If you last installed Verichat via BlackBerry Desktop, you must uninstall that version before you download Over-The-Air. Yes, your same registration code will work.

i paid 34 dollars on handano for the software downloaded it and registered it. It didnt work so i deleted it an re-downloaded the OTA 1.91 and it is awesome. So its like 34 dollars for the download for 1 year. I would suggest this software if u need to IM alot.

Really? Here's the crazy thing, I used the OTA download Mark posted above and got the application ans am currentl using it without providing any credit card information. Possibly it's a trial version I have.
