Yahoo Messenger on Cingular
If you guys remember way back in 6 months or so with this thread: http://www.blackberryforums.com/general-legacy-device-discussion/19994-how-change-default-browser-cingular.html
After a numerous complaints made to cingular, Cingular finally activated Internet Browser for all of us. Is it possible we can do again for Yahoo Messenger this time? Any thoughts?
It still doesnt work. Browsing works, but I believe in order for the realtime msg delivery of "Y! Messenger for BB" app requires a special service book from the provider (Cingular). They aren't saying anything about that or when the free realtime Y! email will work... Somebody says they are working on it, but i've heard that one before.. Could be 5 days, 5 months, or never?
I am down for the whole complaint thing we should organize and get all of the cingular users on the forum to complain I know we are not that many but I feel we are enough.
Hell yea! I have a few friends from Japan who use Yahoo! I'd like to be able to talk to them with my BB. Lets do it!
I am also ready to complain in a bigger way about them not allowing YIM. I sent Cingular an email from my account page on cingular but I don't expect a reply.
After a few tries I got the Blackberry Yahoo IM client to install but of course I get the contact Cingular message. I am able to web browse and check Yahoo email okay.
Count me in guys ...I hate ****ing Cingular...the only reason they wont implement it is because they want to take your money for SMS messaging...lets get a petition going!
I just spoke to Cingular and the tech told me that Yahoo IM will work on the Cingular network, they just dont support it and we need to contact Yahoo for support. I really don't belive she understood what I was asking her, however, I tried to call Yahoo and got disconnected several times. Are they owned by Cingular? :) Anyway, is there a free or reasonable IM client that will work on Cingular for Yahoo?
Although I already use VeriChat (spotty connections, suspect customer service), I'll sign the petition...
This is the app I use on my TMo 8700G:
(I'm new, can't post a link yet)
mobile yahooo com (slash) blackberry
Works great. Maybe it'll work on Cingular.
Ok...we need a mod to get a petition going..lol cause I dont know how
tagging along. i got friends who got bbs but cant use ym on their bb. dang cingular!
Yahoo Messagner not showing up after install
I have the 7130c and I used the OTA to install the Yahoo Messenger for blackberry application. The install process indicated that the app installed successfully, but it no where does it show up on my home screen. If I go to options/applications it is listed as installed by I am unable to launch it.
I was able to install and launch the google messenger successfully?
Does anyone have any ideas as to what the problem may be?
BB Messenger does not appear
The same problem happens with BB installed but not appearing on the home screen
If a petition is started, I am in!
I have complained to Cingular about this in several emails.
One person I talked with in BB support said that there are plans to support it, but couldn't give me a time frame at all.
That person most like had no idea what they were talking about!
Add me too.
Well...I know this may be kind of stupid, but there is this place:
www.PetitionOnline.com - Free Online Petition Hosting
Maybe if we get enough signers we can get Cingular to look at it?
I'll sign it too. It really annoys me that cingular doesn't fully support this device the way they should. Just give us what RIM intended for this device!
