    Question NewB in IL with a ?

    Advertisement



    Just got my first BB on monday and then joined this A W S O M E site yesterday! And today I followed the fantastic thread on how to unlock vendor themes! I'm on a roll right now and tryin to keep my momentum going so I was wondering if there is a way to get similar features from different carriers.

    Specifically, I'm with ATT and my friend who convinced me to get a BB has Tmobile... Well his 8310 came with all the IM clients, AIM, Yahoo, etc. all I got is BB Messenger. Is there a way to unlock those similar to the way the vendor themes were unlocked?

    First of all welcome to the stacks


    I also have t-mo and am not really a pro when it comes to specifics on each carrier, however I can tell you this.

    I and most others here will recommend Jive talk. Jive talk is a multi chat client that will work with either your 8310 (AT&T) or his 8320 (T-Mo). The program is free for a 30 day trail, I believe it is $20 there after. You can find the program HERE.

    This prog. will allow you to connect to multiple chat clients at the same time (i.e. msn,yahoo etc.) and there are many here including myself that will say this is the best chat client available

    I hope this helps and welcome once again

    Assuming you have a data plan on your BB, go to http://mobile.blackberry.com you can download Google Talk, and Yahoo Messenger. They are free to download and use as long as you have the unlimited BB data plan.

    Welcome to the Stacks

    There are a few threads in the 3rd party applications forum that are sticked that may be of interest to you.

    One is about getting all the I'm clients to your BB. It may work and it may not but worth at try. The clients are carrier dependent althought all the service books are in the thread.

    If that doesn't work jivetalk is always a very good alternative.

    Welcome again and let us know if you have more questions.

    Thanks for the responses everybody, and what kinda newbie would I be without asking another question!?!

    Of course I do plan on doing the required leg work on my own by looking through the various threads, but if someone could help me out with tranfering the photo id's of contacts from my previous device to my BB I would greatly appreciate it!

    I had a Treo650 & Samsung Blackjack, the two accepted the photos when the contacts were transfered via bluetooth, but the BB does not display any after having transfered them via desktop manager.

    Dont know if this helps but if you have Outlook and have the photos in your contacts your BB will pick them up with a sync.

    And FYI.. the TMO messenger program you are asking about is OZ Messenger. So far as I know it is only availble to TMO customers...

    I had OZ messenger when I was with AT$T on my BlackJack (what a horrid, horrid device that was. Theworst that I have ever owened.) SO AT$T does have it, but they don't offer the same thing on all devices.

    I totally agree!!! I wanted to double down on it with a sledge hammer a number of times but when I started carrying the Treo again I realized how much of a brick that thing was and since it was the slimist thing ATT had when it came out I just dealt with it!
