Default Cingular/AT&T now allows Yahoo IM on the BB ... supposedly.

Please Login to Remove!

I know many people who use Cingular/AT&T have not been able to get Y!M to work on their BB without doing the crazy workaround. Well, a buddy of mine who works for Cingular/AT&T, called me up to let me know that Y!M is now good to go for all BB devices.

HOWEVER, I am still using the workaround and have not tested to see if it is indeed working - so, good luck!

Actually I didn't mention it because I don't use it, but my contact said both AIM and Y!M are now supposedly good to go.

I installed Yahoo Messenger on my 8800 (Cingular) tonight and it works just fine.

Default Still no go for Yahoo?

Ok, so I found the download on the BB site and installed with no problem. When I try to sign in, it gives me a pop up error telling me to visit blackberry.com/go/yahoo to activate my handheld for yahoo messenger.....


anyone know what I'm missing? I'm a new BB user (pearl on Cingular) and would appreciate the guidance. Do I need to somehow register on the BB site? Thought I've done this through cingular.bb.start email setup....?

Thanks!

Ok, so I tried re-sending the service books with no change. Hmmmm, any suggestions besides hard reset and starting over? (PS - how does one do a 'hard-reset' on the pearl?

I'm starting to think these IM programs are only allowed with the 8800's

I have yahoo working but that is only because I was a T-mobile user - backed up my pearl and returned it to Tmo to come to Cingular. When I did a restore it kept my Tmo Yahoo service book. Wonder if I can do that with AIM also, since I never use Yahoo...

edit: ok tried to download AIM from my friends Tmobile Pearl and no go there either. So that rules out my thought above.

Just wanted to add my experience to the tread.

I am having the same problems with "visit www.blackberry.com/go/yahoo to activate your handheld for Yahoo! Messenger". I tried re-pushing my service books, but didn't help.

Why is Cingular/Blackberry/Yahoo Messenger so difficult?!?

if you read the fine print, it states that the yahoo messenger does not work on the cingular/at&t network.
