    Delete it, battery pull and re-install it. See if that helps.

    Doesn't work with a reboot or battery pull. I even got a replacement phone thinking there was something defective about my phone, so i've come to the realization it's the crappy OS 6 update. I can't use any of my Instant Messengers, so to those of you having the same problem you are not alone. Whenever i click onto a IM icon (any of them, Yahoo, Windows, Aim, Google Talk) it freezes my phone. I've reset to factory settings dozens of time, got a replacement phone, and still they will not open up. Yes, i did do the uninstall and reinstall thing, but they still won't open up after i've installed them. I've called Verizon numerous times about the problem, but not 1 tech support rep knows whats going on. They even said they've never heard of the problem before. Hopefully someone realizes something is wrong and come up with a solution. I have a BB Bold by the way.

    Does your normal internet work well? Are you able to browse and download? That sounds very odd.

    My work just fine as well. This is the first time I've heard of anyone having a problem with a 3rd party IM app. How are you installing the app?
