Can't download yahoo messenger on my bold

I just bought a blackberry bold, rogers branded, unlocked wich i am using it on T-Mobile and i can't install yahoo messenger on it.

i know that t-mobile doesn't have the service book yet and that's why the web browser doesn't work.I managed to make the email work on the device and i also updated my software to 4.6.....162. Some people say that you can downloaded from mobile.blackberry.com but my browser doesn't redirect me to the right place and i also tried to install it from my pc but it says that my device doesn't meet the requierments for the install. I can live without the  browser but i would love to have yahoo mess. on my bold.

Anybody knows a workaround to install it?pleaaaassssssssseeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!

 

Thank You!

Does that mean your data plan isn't working, or yahoo won't work under tmobile?

Re: Can't download yahoo messenger on my bold

yahoo messenger works on tmobile but in order to work on bold i need a data plan wich doesn't work on the device because there are no service books for bold. I thought  there is a workaround to make  yahoo mess to work on the device the same way i manged to make the email to work on bold.

Re: Can't download yahoo messenger on my bold

So what you need is yahoo service books?

I do not think that will work without a data plan. How did you get the browser to function ?

Thanks

Re: Can't download yahoo messenger on my bold

i wasn't able to make the browser to work, just the email. i have the data plan but it doesn't work on bold because i don't have the service books. from the other posts that i read i undestand that the service book are not gonna be available until tmobile will release the BOLD.

my biggest problem right now is that i don't have yahoo mess on my device because i don't care that much about the browser.

i think i'm gonna cancel the data plan and stick with the 9$ plan from tmobile for email.
