Today I have spent a total of 2.5 hours with 4 different reps at Tmobile Blackberry support. After numerous tries, I was told that OZ Instant Messenger was not available for the 8900 (or 8800's series). The funny part is tmobile.com advertise Instant Messaging should work with SMS texting 3 times on their site.
Instant Messaging Info
"You can send and receive instant messages throughout the US for just $0.20 each or choose a Domestic Messaging Value Bundle to save even more."
Unlimited Domestic Message for Families Description
"Send and receive any type of message you want, in any combination you want. Text, IM, picture, or video messages--it's up to you! And the best part is one bundle covers up to 5 subscribers on the same FamilyTime plan so you only need to buy one!"
BlackBerry Feature Enabler Description
"This no cost feature allows customers with certain Blackberry devices who are not signed up for BlackBerry service to enjoy phone features such as Picture Messaging, Instant Messaging and t-zones."
DeoreDX - Thanks for the OZ Messenger suggestion.
Duane - I can get the IM's forwarded to my phone, but I don't get the nice interface and the ability to see who's online.
JoeIndy - I'm not entirely sure how to resend my service book, but I'll search the forum for instructions. I'll let you know if it works or not.
