I did a search on this, and couldn't really find an answer...
I went to www.blackberry.com/livemessenger to get the Windows Live Messenger to work on my 8100. When I attempted the download, I recieved a message that said my carrier does not support Live Messenger.
Is this true? I am on the Cingular network. It seems odd to me that it isn't supported. Is it possible I screwed something up?
Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Use DM to restore the file to your BB. Then register on the network again to get the rest of your service books.

Before I spend the time trying to get this working, can someone please verify that this will work on T-Mobile?

It should work with new service books straight from T-Mobile? Or are you saying to find different service books than those above?

Good to know it works at least! Thanks!
