Default 8120 w/ no MSN Messenger...

Please Login to Remove!

I have tried to find MSN messenger for my blackberry pearl 8120 but have had no luck.

Going to www.blackberry.com/livemessenger does not work... it just takes me to a page that says my browser does not use activeX and there is no way to download messenger.

I downloaded OZ... but it only worked for a week or two before giving me an error when trying to load. I deleted the program from the phone and will re-download it but just haven't had time.

Does anyone know how I can get MSN Messenger installed on my pearl?

Default mobile.blackberry.com

The mobile.blackberry.com site does not load on my phone. It just takes me to a page with a link for blackberry.com.

^^that was the general idea.

More specifically, ON your Blackberry
> Browser
> Menu
> Go To
> type in only "http://www.blackberry.com/instantmessaging" (without the quotation marks)
> Click on Download Windows Live Messenger

lol I just tried that and got told that I had to download it via IE, my browser was incorrect because ofc.. Active X only works using IE. So I changed the browser emulation mode to IE thinking I was being cunning but instead got told that 'downloads via USB are not enabled for this product'. At that point I realized how great BB messenger was anyway :D
