Blackberry curve 8310... AIM problem
hiii i have a 8310... i have the red one from at&T butttt i unlocked it cuz im a tmobile customer.. im trying to sign on aim but i cant seem too sign online.. everytime i try it stays at 20% and says communication error please try again and check your settings... ... i downlaod it for the fone the applications is called oz instant messenger .. it have like the 3 in one AIM, MSN and YaHOO... i was just wondering if ne one have ne ideas
go into options, advanced, TCP and set the apn to wap.voicestream or wap.voicestream.com, I'm not sure which is tmo's apn settings
Leave the username and password blank.see if that helps.~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
I think OZIM is only for use on At&t (well not only, but I don't think it is supported by T-Mobile). You should also keep in mind that OZIM uses SMS to send and receive IMs, so if you don't have an unlimited text package, you may want to avoid it, even if you can get it to work.
That said, if you have a data plan, just use the real mobile AIM client. It is actually permitted by T-Mobile and won't waste your text messages, not to mention it works better from what I hear. I don't know where to get it though, so hopefully a nice T-Mobile user will wander in here and help you out.

The OZ IM cliets can be used with TMO.
Your issue is that you have an unlocked 8310. Since your vendor code is for AT&T they don't allow you to use it. There is a work around in the 3rd party applications forum under the stickies. Have a look in there. All you really need is the service books.
thank to every one that replyy..... nooww where do i lookk im new to diss
OZ Instant Messaging does not work on my phone given that AT&T is my provider. As a result, I'm using an app called Jivetalk. It's awesome! You do have to pay for it, but there is a 30 day trial. Go to http://www.beejive.com/
wait red doogg... i wat service boooks... im completely losttt i kno i seen it sum where i jus dont kno where to go
First of all, to check to see if you have service books, go to Options>Advanced Options>Service Book. You should be able to see all of your service books. To see whether or not your service books are active, you could run a diagnostics test on your bb. To do that, Options>Mobile Network>BB Button (the one with the dots)>Diagnostics Test>BB Button>Run.
That's strange. I too have At&t and I have OZIM installed and working just fine. It's the individual, dedicated IM apps that I can't get working.

No offense, but it sounds like you're going to need to learn more about how to work with the device before you start messing around with "intermediate/advanced" things like workarounds for apps not allowed by your carrier.

Go download JiveTalk and you won't have to figure out the rest of the stuff we're talking about. They have great support service, too, if you get stuck.
