    Question Google talk

    Advertisement



    Hey everyone,
    I recently had a Blackberry 7200. I had Google Talk installed on it, and it worked perfectly. Yesterday, my work replaced my old blackberry with a silver 8700. It says it has version 4.2.1.96

    When I tried to install Google Talk on this device, (I go to www dot blackberry dot com slash googletalk from the cingular browser) I get the following page:

    "Microsoft Internet explorer 5.0 or above is required to download thi instant messenger.
    This web page uses ActiveX controls that work only in Microsoft Internet Explorer. To ensure that Google Talk for Blackberry devices is corectly downloaded to your Blackberry, this site is not designed to work with any other Internet browsers."


    There is no install button or anything.

    thoughts?

    Use www.beejive.com to get JiveTalk (free for 30 days), or mobile.blackberry.com to get Google Talk Messenger.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
    You could try changing the browser emulation from Blackberry to Internet Explorer. We've seen this fix other issues. We've also seen some issues where the BB. Browser setting works best.

    You say you were using the Cingular Browser. Try http://www.blackberry.com/googletalk from the regular Blackberry Internet Browser.
    Or you can try Chevy's suggestion of going to http://mobile.blackberry.com and download from there.
    Also you can get it from http://mobile.google.com

    The link for the mobile blackberry site should also be bookmarked already in the browser as Blackberry HELP!
