Meh, I dunno ... I don't have access to a Pearl - however, if anyone who does have one would like to go ahead and wipe out all the service books other than the Y!M service book and create a backup file, I would be more than happy to post it (hint, hint). Of course, credit will be given where credit is due. In the meantime, maybe try the 4.1.x service book? Dunno if it'll work, but you could try.

Worked great for me. I had the read only database error but deleting the SYNC service book took care of it. I'm on a BES and my service book was my companies name SYNC instead of DesktopSYNC. Had to reactivate my handheld through the enterprise activation option. Works great! Thanks for your help.

Preeeetty snazzy! ^_^ Good to hear. You should probably also be able to just manually generate a key through Desktop Manager > Redirector Settings > Security > Generate Key Manually.

I was able to get this working on my Cingular 8700c.. now if someone could come up with an MSN client (I thought i searched and didn't find one that's reliable), I can uninstall IM+ .. no icon notification on the home screen from it..

Thanks, Spencer.

I wasn't sure if the service book, which appeared to be for OS 4.x, would work with 3.8.

In any event, I did upgrade to 4.X. As a relative newcomer to all this, it was a total nightmare. But, thanks to this forum I perservered, got the damn OS to work correctly (after having to use another poster's wonderful program to wipe the whole thing clean), and was able to get the yahoo messenger to work without a flaw.

Now the question is how will it appear on my cingular bill!

Thanks Spencer_CDS! I successfully loaded YIM on my 7130c and it works! I thought I would have to get a third party s/w like Verichat or IM+, but not I don't need to.

I don't know why Cingular won't provide YIM for BB when they do it for other phones.

Yahoo! Messenger will be billed only as data services (no SMS messages); unless you have one of the unlimited data plans, you'll be billed per kilobyte above the 4MB limit.

Great thread. Thanks for your work on this. So many Cingular users are bummed that they can't use Yahoo!....
Not any more!

Thank you... worked first time on 7130c

Stellar. Glad to hear it, Chris. I'm still working on a work-around for MMS as well, but I'm struggling a bit with it. The service books won't work in the same manner - seems like it has something to do directly with the handset being registered on RIM's end, as I've noticed that my associate's 7130c, when registering via the HRT editor, received the MMS service books even after deletion, whereas mine would not, despite provisioning.

I'm workin' on it. ^_^

I'm a bit nervous about trying this (looking for a T-Moblie SIM to borrow) because I'm a BES user, and while my IT group just lifted almost all the restrictions, I don't know how to manage this step in the instructons:

Quote:
#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
How do BES users get our old service books back? If I restore my backup, won't I blow away the needed YIM service book? I'll be back where I started. I wish somebody could turn this into an application...and allow us to add it without using backup-restore.

Ah! No worries, my friend. You need to restore the Y!M service book to your handset first, then "Register Now" via the HRT; after that, you can either have the BES admin resend the Desktop service books, or manually generate an encryption key via the Desktop Manager Redirector Settings icon.
