Yes yahoo messenger doesn't work on Cingular(free offer from BB). I had the same problem removing as well. By deleting the Yahoo Messenger from the Other Options --> Applications. Check and see if the module is still being listed. The module still existed for me and I had to delete it in order for it to be completely deleted off my BB.

moosehead: yes i was finally able to uninstall it.

my question is how do we make this work from cingular? do we need some kinda service book being send from cingular or what? or cingular ain't going to give this us for free since they can charge us with sms txt?

but i already have google talk for msn and aim. that's stupid...they are just pissing off their customers!

Cingular does not support Yahoo Messenger at this time for the BB therefore it will never work native to this application.

However you appears later in your thread that you have the transports setup for MSN and AIM; set another one up for Yahoo.

I believe it had to do with money. Cingular and yahoo couldn't get deal done.
IM+ incorps all 3 programs but there is a one fee.

Idon't know the answer about being charged for each message. Tmobile users appear to have better data plans from what I've read.

moosehead.. what is goin on with the raiders man 0-2. I think they need to get rid of them offensive linemen. And brooks needs to step it up.

Anywayz, I recomment Verichat, IM+, or webmessenger.. their all multi-network and uses data. But hey there's a catch! Their not FREE.

Moosehead:

I was using a yahoo transport 2 months...now the deeparc transport doesn't work. I think yahoo have maybe responsible for shutting those transport down.

And for the one that recommend using Verichat, IM+, or webmessenger... I believe all those charge some type of fee which I don't want.

Yeah thank god they have a bye week this weekend....I don't have to watch them lose. All the so called experts are saying we're the worse team in football....if we lose to the Browns in two week I think they might be right.

I agree with your assessment...o-line needs help......we can't even get a snap off!

Moosehead,

Don't despair... The Texans will eventually end up making you guys look good. One of my favorite Longhorns defensive players went to your team...

Technically, no, Cingular will not support nor make available the RIM Y!M client (at least, not the required service book for the software); however, check out my thread here for a little info on how I was able to get it running on mine.

Make sure you remove the spaces in the URL before checking it out.

Research in Motion's Yahoo! Messenger client (located at - http : // www . blackberry . com / go / yahoo ) requires a specific Y!M service book to be able to function on any given handset. Now, as I'm sure some of you are well-aware, Cingular Wireless sadly does and will not currently provision the Y!M service book (BBFS2) when downloading/installing Y!M. However, other service providers will, and I have taken the liberty of seperating into a Backup/Restore file the service book for Y!M into a nice, easy Backup/Restore File, which can be loaded up right into the device via the Desktop Manager Backup/Restore (I'm sorry, no desktop solutions for Mac users yet, but stay tuned!). Just make sure that you remember that this is going to delete all your current service books, so you 'll need to manually register via the Host Routing Table editor in Settings > Options/Advanced Options to get your books back. Also, you'll need to log into your BIS account and resend the service books from there, as well as regenerate any encryption keys if you're using the Desktop Redirector or are on a BES (don't forget to have your friendly neighborhood BES admin create an IT policy enabling Y!M traffic, too).

Now, the other way this can be done involves inserting another GSM carrier SIM card (such as T-Mobile, for example) and downloading/installing Y!M from http : // www . blackberry . com / go / yahoo from there. At that point, you should check your service books and make sure that you've got "BBFS2 [YHO]" listed, then switch back the SIM card to your Cingular SIM (your handset must be unlocked to proceed, though).

Basically, there are just a few steps to go through here:

#1: Download the .ipd backup file here:
http : // www . boomspeed . com / setzer / yahoo_messenger_service_book.ipd

#2: Restore the file to your handset using Desktop Manager (see https:// cingular . atgnow . com / cng / tutorials / KB4717.html for instructions).

#3: Manually register your handset with the RIM network via the HRT editor (see https : // cingular . atgnow . com / cng / tutorials / KB49643.html for instructions).

#4: Log into your BIS account and re-send BIS service books:
BIS 1.8 (from PC) - https : // cingular . atgnow . com / cng / tutorials / KB2355.html
BIS 2.0 (from PC) - https : // cingular . atgnow . com / cng / tutorials / KB64052.html
BIS 2.0 (from handset) - https : // cingular . atgnow . com / cng / tutorials / KB64276.html

#5: If applicable, regenerate encryption keys for Desktop Manager or BES. If you're on a BES, again, make sure your BES admin can create a policy allowing Y!M traffic.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

I know it's not very organized, but I hope you all find this useful. Good luck, and happy messaging. =)

Oh, and by the way, make sure that when you copy these URLs into your browser, remove the spaces. I'm new here, I haven't even achieved 10 posts yet. =P Sorry!
maybe that will work for you cingular people. just ask spencer_cds for more info

I have a few colleagues with Cingular handsets, and every single one of them who have gone through this (as have I myself) have been able to get this all up and running with no issue thus far. Feel free to check out the article provided in the above post for more information.

In regards to Yahoo Messenger, are you able to add your MSN contacts? I know with the new Windows Live Messenger, MSN and Yahoo contacts are combined.

You can't add or view MSN contacts with the BB Yahoo Messenger, maybe sometime soon they will add that capability.
