1)What model BB do u have? I'm with cingular as well. I installed it from the Cingular homepage on my BB browser(globe with cingular logo). At the bottom is a section called Blackberry Smart....log in and there should be a BB Messenger link.
Not sure why you got that message.....u do have a data plan setup correct?
2)Correct from what I know(and have been told) PIN to PIN messages is sent through as RIM data so does not count as a txt message(cingular txt message). Last year during Katrina and during 9/11 when the phone lines(cingular) were down PIN messages still worked.
So with that said...you probably need Cingular's service to download it but after that you should be good to go....
I'll keep checking this thread today....try it again from the Blackberry Smart link and let me know how it goes.
