2 problems with Blackberry Bold

Hey everyone,

Yesterday I bought a blackberry bold 9000, my first blackberry. After I saw a lot of videos on YT i made my decision. Now I have a few problems.


- 1: How do I install MSN? and whats the right MSN to install? I heard about a program with like 6 messengers in 1 (inc. Yahoo, AIM, MSN)


- 2: I want to watch youtube, but it gives an error. I click on the "Watch this video" button and the media player opens but then it says: Error


Who can help me? I think you guys/girls wouldnt have a problem with this, but it's hard to find out.

Have a look at this artlcie for the different IM clients you can install



For youtube try going to m.youtube.com. That's the mobile version of the youtube site?

Re: 2 problems with Blackberry Bold

Also with the Youtube issue, make sure you try to access it either on 3G or using WiFi, EDGE can probably do it but not very well, depending on your carrier

Hope this helps


When all else fails, just ask your friend what happened. They won't know but at least your both failing in style!

Please consider Kudos when I help you resolve an issue!
