AOL instant messenger not working??

I downloaded AOL instant messanger because I didnt like the AIM that came with my Blackberry curve... I thought the downloadable version would be different so through my phone i went to the home page on the browser and downloaded it again but now when I try to sing in it says "service not enabled for this handheld" can someone tell me how to enable this service please!

For AOL to work in your handheld OS need to be 4.5 of higher.

Also, check in your service book list to make sure that you've got the AIM service book downloaded.  If it's not there they application won't work.
