- Hello All,
I know this topic has been posted probably a billion times, but in my searches I couldn't really find my right solution.
I just bought a Blackberry Pearl 8100 off E-Bay. When I found out that there was this nifty thing called Blackberry Messenger, I tried finding it on my phone, but it just wasn't there.
I went online and tried downloading old versions of the Desktop Software (oldest being 4.0) and nothing seems to work. I've tried making it go back to an old OS so I can just download the messenger straight from the website, but that doesn't work either. When I use desktop software 4.0 and 4.1, my phone becomes undetectable.
All in all, it's frustrating, so if someone could help me I'd be eternally grateful!
If it helps, my BB's current version is v188.8.131.52.06-24-08 05:39 PM
My BB will connect with V 4.2 and later, but 4.1 and 4.0 do not work.
It's just odd because my phone was the newest version coming out of the box (like I said, ebay) and nothing's on it. So I'm not sure, and none of my BB friend owners know either!06-24-08 09:05 PM
- So update:
-I downloaded v4.3 as JasonHDD suggested, and it did manage to connect but messenger still doesn't show up on my application list. I also cleared my system, and that didn't work as well..
Does the CD that is supposed to come with the box contain messenger? My friend has the CD but doesn't know what is in it.
I'm not sure what other possibilities there are? Thank you guys though, since blackberry doesn't seem to really have customer service of their own.06-24-08 09:49 PM
but does it matter if your phone is a new version? cause normally the website says if it's a newer version you get it from desktop manager.06-26-08 10:42 AM
- You have to have the same OS that is on the device loaded on your pc also.
You should use the latest verison of the DM, and you will have to install the BBM app using the DM Applications loader.
And you will need a data plan to use it.
