yahoo! messenger on 8310

I've been using OZ messenger on my curve but I'd prefer the yahoo! messenger ap they have for blackberry. I installed it but when i try to login, it says... it's not yet supported for my handheld or something. Anyone know what's up?

 

Thanks in advance!!

Didn't your BB come with the Yahoo Messenger already installed? Mine was hidden away in the Instant Messaging icon.

The only one I see is for the bb messenger and that's just it by itself.

Hmmmm...then I would try and go under options...Advanced Options and the Application List. Once it builds it see if Yahoo Messenger is on there at all.

If so, I would delete the app and then restart your BB. After that, then try downloading Yahoo Messenger again, but make sure it's not the desktop version you're trying to download.

Hope this helps. :-)

It wasn't on there.

I thought it might be my OS version so I updated on the AT&T site. 

I reinstalled and got the same thing. Apparently, Yahoo! Messenger cannot work on an AT&T Blackberry directly. It must be logged in through OZ Messenger, etc. Oh well.
