Default Cingular Wireless does not support BlackBerry Messenger!

Please Login to Remove!

Why doesn't cingular support this feature?? Every other carrier does. Can someone explain to me why? Will this feature work on the 8300??

It works on all Cingular BlackBerry's. By not supporting it - they mean don't call them with any problems you're having with it.

It's an issue when I was trying to add contacts - it was weird. It would keep them in a pending friend state. I just got frustrated and deleted the app.

Does it use SMS or Data anyway?
