Re: yahoo messenger fail starting

if I were you I would contact the support of your carrier. Some carriers forbid their subscribers to use Yahoo or MSN.

Instructions:

THIS DOES NOT WORK FOR MAC USERS

PLEASE BACKUP YOUR DEVICE. DESKTOP MANAGER IS VERY EASY TO FOLLOW FOR BACKING UP AND RESTORING!

- Download the Yahoo Messenger 2.0 service book (NOT THE APPLICATION) from HERE

- Open Desktop Manager and restore it to your device.

- Manually register your handset with the RIM network via the HRT editor:

Options > Advanced Options > Host Routing Tables > Menu > Register Now

- Load your own backup back to the device.

- Log into your BIS account (the same thing you did when you first set up your BB people!) and re-send service books

- Download Yahoo Messenger from mobile.blackberry.com

* If applicable, regenerate encryption keys for Desktop Manager or BES. If you're on a BES, again, make sure your BES admin can create a policy allowing Yahoo IM traffic.

** If the service does not work right from the install, try doing a hard reset (pulling/reinserting battery).

Hello,

is this source reliable ? How can I be sure there is not a harmful application in there ?
