You need a BlackBerry Data Plan in order to use Yahoo Messenger. And also for email. A "general" data plan will not work.

You do need a blackberry data plan, to get the service book for yahoo messenger.
Having loaded it, and its now connecting, I suspect that it requires more than the 2G connection your phone has.
Try using it on wi-fi.
