    How do I find free IMs?

    Advertisement



    Hello!

    I recently got me a new T-Mobile Blackberry 7290, so I'm new to Blackberry handheld. I'm wondering where can I find free Instant Messengers to download?

    I'll be appreciated any help!

    Also, being on T-Mobile you should have pre-installed IM clients on your phone. If you do not, log onto your account on T-Mobile and you can get them sent to you from there. Be prepared to have an unlimited text package put on your phone though because you will be charged a per text fee for every sent and receivied IM sent thru them if you use the T-Mobile IM clients....

    Yahoo, Ramble and google talk will all go thru the data service on the phone and you will not get charged individually.

    I'm on Data Plan service with T-Mobile and did not have pre-installed IM clients on my blackberry 7290. I did logged onto my account, but couldn't get the IM clients. Also, I called the Customer Support Representative about Instant Messenger and said that Blackberry 7290 doesn't support this Instant Messenger. I was puzzled about that.

    Found it. Here's what you do to get it.

    1) Go here http://www.t-mobile.com/bbupgrade/
    2) Click on the 7290.
    3) Click "Get Software."
    4) Enter your phone number and press "Go."
    5) Download the Instructions.
    6) Download and install "Application: Instant Messaging (4.46.17) AIM, Y! Messenger, MSN Messenger, ICQ" via Desktop Manager.
    7) There's also the Desktop and Handheld Software for you to download.

    Try the dummy number in the linked post above, or Pin Me and I will give you my cell number to put in to get the download...

    Tmobile is probably wondering what in the world I am doing, cause I have logged onto their BB Upgrade site about 40 times in the last month and downloaded the different software for the BB's that they have.

    I recently downloaded Ramble IM on T-Mobile Blackberry 7290. Are you certain it will work on data service without getting charged. Does it apply the same for Yahoo?

    By the way, as I've got Ramble IM on my blackberry. My friend doesn't see a mobile icon showing that I am using mobile AIM. How do i do that?

    I have tmo. And use yahoo and they do charge for using ims. How are you getting them for free? Or do you have to have their unlimited messaging service?

    If I understands that right, download Yahoo from Blackberry website and will not be charged with Blackberry Data Service.

    That's what I did and I'm still getting charged. I don't know why. But I only have the date plan and no messaging
