Blackberry Messenger - how to download

I have accidently deleted Blackberry Messenger on my Curve 8900. Is there any way to re download it? I have searched Blackberry forums but the links already given say that the BBM does not work for my Curve 8900, as its operating system is higher than 4.1. I have heard that it is feasible to do using the BB Desktop Manager, however how does one do that? Clear step by step instructions will be amazing. Many thanks for reading!

Re: Blackberry Messenger - how to download

install desktop manager that can on the CD with your phone

Then you can connect it, remove it, reboot and add it back again.

Re: Blackberry Messenger - how to download

The desktop Manager is already installed on to my laptop. When clicking Application loader, and then Add/Remove Device applications, the Blackberry Instant Messenger isn't even on the list of downloaded apps.

Re: Blackberry Messenger - how to download

There is a simple instruction on how to get it back.

 

Connect your device via USB-cable to the computer.

 

Launch Internet Explorer

 

Open this address: http://na.blackberry.com/eng/services/devices/

 

Click on "Update Now"  button

 

Now browse the list of available applications and check "BlackBerry Messenger"

 

After that complete all the necessary steps via pressing "Next" button in the popup window.

Re: Blackberry Messenger - how to download

I tried www.blackberry.com/messenger but it doesn't allow me to download, saying my version 4.6 isn't compatible with over-the-air download available. I'm still digging to find my CD.

 

Any other advice?
