Help! very Lost!
So I got the Pearl today and I like to keep things nice on my phone. Im kind of an idiot when it comes to technology but this phone has me completely lost!
1. Why wont my Mobile AIM work? Whenever I try to use it..this message pops up, my Windows live wont work either. NETWORK ERROR:CAN'T CONTACT SERVER!
2. How and where do I download new ringtones and wallpaper.
I don't know anything about AIM since I don't instant message but in regards to downloading new ringtones and wallpapers you can do it right here on Pinstack. Just click on the download section up top. Here is a link for a comprehensive guide to the 8100 (i know you have the 8130 though) http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com...100_guide.html
Also here are links to download wallpapers & ringtones
There are other sites on the web for both wallpapers/ringtones but this will get you started.
do u have a blackberry data plan?
Success is not final, Failure is not fatal, it is the courage to continue that matters.

8130 smartphone and Verizon
I don't know if Verizon enabled the AIM application on their BB (they have a habit of disabling stuff) so that might be the problem there. The way to check what's on your account will be to log onto the website via PC and check to see if anything related to BlackBerry Internet Service (or BIS) is mentioned.
Are you able to access the web or use other data services?
You may have a provisioning issue. Give your carrier a call and make sure your phone is provisioned correctly.
Call them and tell them about the issues you're having and ask them to make sure your phone is set up properly on your end and theirs.
~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~i have also removed aim from the phone and reinstalled it from bbs website. But I'd try cust care first.
Yeah, I think verizon diabled it. Download the jivetalk application---it incorporates almost all messengers--one click to log in to all, nice and easy

now even though that program is free, i would still recommend JiveTalk. its a great program and much more user friendly and it has all your messengers in one
