    Thumbs down BB Messenger not showing up.

    Advertisement



    I made the dumb choice of re-installing the BB Messenger onto my pearl from the website and now the icon is gone. It shows up as an installed app in the desktop manager and in the phone apps, but there is no way for me to open the program. it's the newest version.

    1. I have read another post similar to mine but couldn't find a way to post on it since i was noew????

    2. i'm with cingular who "supposivly doesn't support BB messenger" however everyone in my office has pearls with BB Messenger and it works great.

    is there anyway for me to get this program working again?

    and NO its not hidden

    thanks for any help given

    welcome to the stacks have you tried a batt pull?
    phone on batt out for 30 sec then back in.
    I had to do that after I loaded opera mini

    Re: BB Messenger not showing up.

    Unfortunantly yes.........
    I was told by RIM support that since i am with cingular they "suposivly block the service" however everyone else seemsto be just fine.....
    i was hopeing someone would know a back door to opening a program or re-creating a icon.
    Thanks for the quick response and effort
    and thanks for the hospitality, i really like this site

    Re: BB Messenger not showing up.

    a post from bbjen a little while ago also make sure you have a bb data plan!

    Well for anyone that has cingular, you have to call into their help desk. They will tell you how to set up your options on your internet to get it working. It wasn't giving me the option to chose BB internet and that is where my problem was occuring. DUH! So those of you that have Cingular, if you do have the BB plan, get one and make sure you get your internet settings working at the store and don't suffer like i did for the last three weeks. LOL
    yeah she was having issues with bb msngr on cingy this was her fix
    Is this gonna help?

    Question Re: BB Messenger not showing up.

    I installed bb messenger easily on my 7100i. My co-workers cannot install on theirs at all. I tried theirs ota and it said it was installed, but all I am seeing is Yahoo Messenger. Desktop manager does not work either to install.

    Re: BB Messenger not showing up.

    Go to Cingular Site and dowload the newest os for the device should do it. if not you can try this.
    Uninstall it from your device. (options, advanced applications)
    then remove it threw DM.
    then uninstall DM.
    Reinstall DM and connect your berry.
    Run Application Loader
    that should do the trick

    I'm having the same issue with my pearl on T-Mobile. I think it's a defect with the installation process. The application shows that it's installed, but it just won't show up

    Don't let anyone tell you that it won't work because it will!
    If the OTA download does not work (mobile.blackberry.com) on the downloads section, then http://www.blackberry.com/messenger/entry.do from your pc

    That is the problem... someone else said they did the same and it did not work. uninstall it, and you will have to re-install it from the OS install files for Cingular. When you install the OS you will just need to re-check the box for BBM

    thought I read on here that someone used that link and it did not work because it was an older version (It is only version 1.0.94 date released it says was 2005-12-06 - should be the version matching the OS which for Cingular would be BBM Version 4.2.0.71)
