AOL Instant Messenger for Curve 8300
I have the Curve 8300 and am on the ATT Network. I am on the BIS data plan. I am unable to download AOL Instant Messenger for the Curve. Is there a reason I am having this problem? Suggestions?

Don't bother with it.
Purchase Jivetalk for $20 and use that instead.
It's light years ahead of any other IM client for BlackBerry, IMO.

I would check out JiveTalk. I never liked Ramble.

dres79 01-22-2008 06:37 PM

When is AOL going to come out with a version for the Curve users, to use? Hasn't it been like 2 years since they came out with the original one?

I'm using AIM version 1.1.15 on my 8320 with no issues.

Ramble doesnt seem to work at all lately. There is no support for Ramble anymore the company is defunct.

Just buy Jivetalk you wont be disappointed.

Mine came installed on my 8320 but you can try.

Get it Now : Open your mobile web browser & go to Send To Cell allows you to send AOL applications to your mobile phone - AOL Mobile or Send to Cell

I can only get up to 30 friends on my AIM in my Tmobile curve!?!
Ok, I have been researching on this and it seems like I may be the only one with this problem. I can only get up to 30 friends on my aim in my curve. I had a sidekick three and today I bought a new curve. On my sidekick my aim worked great but now with my curve, it just only wants to take 30 friends. Is that how it is for everyone?

30 is the limit.
As mentioned many times earlier in this thread... switch to JiveTalk.

I have been a user of Jivetalk before and recommend it, I should have gotten the package where I can switch it between devices actually, its a great program for $20.

But at the moment, I'm testing the curve out and wondered if the AIM vers. 1.1.15 is using SMS bucket or is it using my data plan?

WebMessenger & Bing
There are two free softwares that support AIM.

1. WebMessenger
WebMessenger software allows you to access to AIM, Google, MSN Messenger/Window Messenger, ICQ and Yahoo from your BlackBerry.

Here is a link:
WebMessenger Inc.

2. Bing
Bing software also allows you to access up to 3 apps.

Link encloses:
bing - your mobile room for good friends - Home

JiveTalk remains to be a superior IM software.(y)

Ramble software is S U CK for sure!(n)

the aim that came preloaded on my 8320 works fine. there's just about a 1-2 second lag when receiving messages but thats not a big deal. graffitimonkie...the aim uses data not sms.

haalloween 03-24-2008 06:24 AM

does the aim version uses your sms?? is there an AIM app that does not use sms? can someone confirm.. thanks
