    how to install bb messenger?

    Advertisement



    so, when i upgraded to 4.2.2.14 (it was a clean install. i wiped my pearl with jl_cmdr first), i decided to not install bb messenger. i have now changed my mind and want it. i figgered it'd be as easy as going into the app loader and selecting it. but noooooo! it's not there. so, i went to bb's site and tried to install from there, but it tells me my device is not supported (??). i thought about deleting vendor.xml and letting the os reinstall, but i already don't have a vendor.xml file.

    what, oh what can i do?

    thx!

    you should be able to just re-check it to install in DM. You didn't delete the .cod files did you?

    okay, i figgered it out. the thing is, it's sometimes not enough to have the dm software. in order to get the option back for bbmess, i had to download and install the handheld software from tmo. piece o' cake.

    if you go to www.mobile.blackberry.com on your blackberry browser you can go to downloads section and there is an OTA link right there FROM BLACKBERRY DIRECTLY which will download the correct version to whatever blackberry you have.

    Ok! I too deleted the bb messenger before I loaded the new os and now I'm trying to get it back on my phone. I followed the link above and followed the instructions and downloaded. I did both a soft and hard reset on my phone and the icon is still not showing up on my home screen. When I look at the applications it shows up there, but no icon in home screen, therefore I still cant pull it up. Can someone Help???????

    Maybe resend the service books, or make sure you're registered with TMO's network.

    I did the things you said and re-downloaded it and still nothing. I don't understand why its not showing up! Do I need to have bb connected on Desktop man. when I dl? I also don't understand why you have to have bb connected to usb on pc, when your doing an ota download!!

    You don't need to have the BB connected to the desktop when you download. I'm lost. Who's directions are you following?

    Ok do this. If you have it downloaded and installed to you bb

    Connect up you BB to the PC and then open up Desktop Manager.
    Open up App loader and tell me if you see BB messanger in the list of apps.

    EDIT nevermind...i totally spaced and forgot that it won't show up in the app loader.

    the instructions on mobile.blackberry.com./ click downloads/ click Blackberry Messenger and you scroll down to where it says "Important:"
    this is via bb.
