Need help to install BB messenger

I just got the 8320 Curve because my pearl has malfunctioned. I bought it brand new off ebay. BB messenger doesn't seemed to be loaded on this phone. There is an icon for 'instant messenging' but there is only an empty folder once I click on it. I don't see the bb messenger icon. How can I get this on my phone? Please help. Thanks.

Re: Need help to install BB messenger

You will need to install the Desktop Manager program on your computer first. Then, you will need to install the handheld operating system installation file on to your computer that matches the operating system on your BlackBerry (you can find out your OS by going to Help > About).

 

Once that is done you will be able to use the Application Loader module in the Desktop Manager to install the BlackBerry Messenger.

You're right. Found it after I added the OS file. Thanks.
