    Question Yahoo Messenger & Cingular???

    Advertisement



    When I got the 7290, I quickly learning that there is no Yahoo Messenger for the 7290 from Cingular. As an alternative, I would have to resort to YM SMS or IM+ (commercial).

    I have been using Yahoo and Yahoo Messenger since 1997.

    Anyone know where I can get a modified version that will work on the 7290 with Cingular? Blackberry's site says Cingular does not support it.

    All BB software from RIM is released at the disgression of the carrier. I don't think its possible to run the official yahoo client until cingular releases it.

    Thanks for the info. I have Verichat on my Treo 600. Unfortunately, Verichat doesn't offer cross-platform registration discounts. IM+ is OK, I'm still using that as a trial. I use MunduIM 3 on my Treo 600, which (I think) is better than Verichat.

    Verichat is not direct to internet. All data, to and from device, travels through Verichat's servers. I am not sure about IM+.

    There was recently an agreement with Yahoo and RIM to support all Yahoo services on all Handhelds. Look for this to happen very soon, within the next few weeks...

    Yahoo for Cingular on BlackBerry's site DOES work. Just ignore the statement that it's not compatible.

    You have been able to get this to work? I was under the impression that a service book handed down from the network was needed for this to work. At least, right now, thats how it works on all the listed carriers (which are supported). The new Yahoo agreement will rollout YahooIM and other Yahoo services for all carriers.

    If u go to blackberry.com and search for the software, it will say that Cingular is not supported but it actually is. I am looking for the thread that it's mentioned in.

    Let us know if you find it. I had one of our users in the office who has a 8700c for cingular try installing it, and the service book still does not show up for YahooIM. Im 100 percent sure you need this for it to work at the moment.

    I also had some nextel users try it (7520 and 7100) users, and they do get the service book when its installed. (we have 1900 bb users, all different models and carriers)
