    IM software for 8800?

    Advertisement



    As you can tell by my screen name, I'm new to BB's, so forgive me if this is a dumb question.

    What IM software is available for the 8800? Will I be able to use Yahoo?

    Y! IM is not supported by Cingular, so you would need to use t-mobile. Blackberry has a chat client (BB Messenger) that comes on the device - it only chats with other BB's. Google Talk works on the 8800 - I installed it this afternoon and it works fine.

    I tried it today with the Cingular 8800 and it installs but when you try to use it it tells you to activate it - which just means it will not activate because Cingular does not (for whatever stupid reason) support it. I had the same issue with my 8700c.

    If you manually add the service book entry then yahoo messenger will work with Cingular. I am using it successfully with my 8100. There are instructions for this in a sticky post in the Cingular users forum.

    BBwannabe - I am not sure if any of our lucky 8800 owners here at Pinstack use IM+ from Shapeservices but if any does I would like to know if the current version 4.24 works. I am running it on my 7290 and I love it. So I have to recommend it.
