    Is AIM loaded onto your phone already? See if your provider can send you the services books so that you can register AIM on your phone again.

    I pulled this off a technical support page with AT&T

    SUBJECT: Methods to Send and Receive Instant Messages with the RIM BlackBerry Curve 8310
    Ways to Instant Message with the RIM BlackBerry Curve 8310

    IM methods

    FACT: Windows Live Messenger
    RIM BlackBerry Curve 8310
    AOL Instant Messenger (AIM)
    MSN Messenger
    BlackBerry Messenger
    Yahoo! Messenger
    SYMPTOM: Instant Messaging (IM)
    ADVISORY: Standard Instant Messaging charges may apply.
    Instant Message (IM) methods supported by AT&T are outlined below. Additional support for any other IM client application must be directed to the product vendor.
    FIX:
    There are three methods of sending and receiving Instant Messages on the RIM BlackBerry Curve 8310:

    BlackBerry Messenger

    BlackBerry Messenger allows text conversation between BlackBerry users.

    MEdia Net

    This method allows text-only Instant Messages to be sent through the standard MEdia Net and requires a user to log into MEdia Net first.
