I've been trying to acquire the yahoo messenger app since I got my 8310 a week or so ago. For one, if you search for Yahoo messenger in app world, it doesn't come up. Weird eh? What gives? So, I go to the appworld website and lo and behold I see that yahoo messenger is a featured app.
I select the yahoo box and I am instructed to enter an email address that I use with my blackberry and I will be sent links to begin dowloading. I immediately get emailed a link that looks legit: http://appworld.blackberry.com/webstore/content/69
However, that link is bogus... when I try to open it on my blackberry it takes me to the "Thanks for your interest in blackberry appworld.... download." If I open the link on my computer it redirects to me their "refer a friend" page. So I went back and tried to load other featured apps... same story.
Ridiculous. Anyone else have any ideas?

Yahoo Messenger is available (at least on my device) from the current version of App World. Make sure you are on the latest version (there was a recent update) of App World. Go here to initate the installation of the new App World:

Check your version of App World...it should be 126.96.36.199. I find Yahoo Messenger in the Social Networking & Sharing category.

You can check your version in whatever the equivalent is on your specific device. On mine (Storm), I select the Options icon on my homescreen, then Advanced Options, then Applications. The app list builds and shows the version of each app installed.
I have 29 apps available in that category.
