I just wanted to thank you guys for solving my problem: I erased my BB messenger and had OS v. 188.8.131.52. I could not reinstall BBM from my BB Desktop Manager because the CD came without BBM, so I browsed through your messages and found that j198's problem was very similar to mine. At the time I didn't know how to post a new thread so I contacted jsanders through email directly, great help. This is what I did based in jsanders excellent instructions :
Choose BlackBerry Curve(TM) 8320 smartphone.
DownLoad the first opcion;
BlackBerry Handheld Software v184.108.40.206 (Multilanguage)
Then Follow the following instructions
Instructions for installing on ANY 8320 (regardless of carrier)
4.1. Download the above OS file to the PC then install it to the PC by running (double
clicking) the file you downloaded.
4.2. Go to c:\program files\common files\research in motion\apploader and delete the file
4.3. Plug in BB and double click on "Loader.exe." It's located in the same place as the
above vendor.xml file.
The process takes about 45 minutes to an hour depending on how much data you have to backup and
restore during the process. Once it's done loading the new OS it will reboot (it may do this
twice during the entire process.) You will see a white screen with an hourglass for up to 20
minutes at a time while the DM says "waiting for initialization."
If, for some reason, you end up with a white screen with small icons and the number 507, simply
connect to the PC again and run Loader.exe again and it should load the OS to the device.

Note Keep in mind that the BBM is included in the OS
