I tried to download the new version of Yahoo messenger on my 7100i the other ... RIM Blackberry 71xx forum
I tried to download the new version of Yahoo messenger on my 7100i the other day and when it was finished downloading, it said it was done successfully. After it downloaded, it told me I needed to reboot my phone so I did so. When my phone turned back on it passed the security test but it said that there was an uncaught exception: java.lang.error. I was wondering what that meant and how can I fix it. Also, I don’t see the Yahoo Icon but when I search for it under my applications list it says it there. Can someone help me out with this please…
