Thumbs up Yahoo Icon on BB 7520

Please Login to Remove!

Hi All;
Is there anyway to put the Yahoo Icon - similar to a shortcut on your desktop - on the screen of a Nextel 7520. Instead of having to go into Bookmarks, I would like to be able to jump right onto Yahoo from the main screen.

Thanks!

Yes, you have to download Yahoo Im to the blackberry to get the icon. I don't know where/what the link is off hand.

Talking Yahoo on BB 7520

Thanks for the info. I tried it and I see where to go, but I think my IT dept has it locked, as it won't get me to the page...oh well.
What I was really hoping to do, was take my Yahoo mail sign in bookmark and make that an Icon on the home page, but not sure if that is possible.

Appreciate the help though!
John

The only way to make a icon on the actual desktop of the BB is to have it installed as a app. bookmarks can only be bookmarks so there is no way to make than a icon.

Hi Trinity:
Thanks for the reply. I thought it might be something like that...I have been searching online today to see if there might be a way to create/build and icon and put it in the Applications, but nothing yet. Not sure if I have enough programming knowledge to do it anyway.
Oh well, no biggie, just thought I would see if possible.

Take care,
John
