    Yeah I tried that both from my computer with having my BB Bold connected and got this message:

    Unsupported Device

    Sorry, your device does not meet the system requirements that are needed to support Windows Live Messenger.

    and also tried by going directly to that address on my BB Bold and got the unsupported message

    it should already be installed on your device.

    in home menu > blackberry key > show all

    check in download folder or Instant Messaging folder (if you have latest OS build).

    if it doesn't show up then you are missing a service book.

    There's only a BlackBerry Messenger Folder and a Downloads Folder with nothing in it.

    Since you bought it from rogers they usually send it to you as a service book once the BIS is activated.

    There is a much easier way to work around this install problem with Windows Live Messenger as follows ::

    If you dont have Yahoo Messenger installed on your device start at step 2

    1. If you have Yahoo Messenger installed on your device go to:
    Options >> Advanced Options >> Applications - and delete Yahoo Messenger from the device. When the device prompts you, select restart device and wait for it to boot back up

    2. Go to the Yahoo Messenger icon and proceed to install Yahoo Messenger to your device

    3. Once the application prompts you saying it has successfully installed select "OK"

    4. After you select ok it will automatically redirect you back to the accept conditions screen in your browser. You must leave this screen up in the browser for this to work so exit browser using the red end call button. This will take you back to your home screen.

    5. Now proceed to the Windows Live Messenger icon and proceed to install the Windows Live Messenger app through the icon which should be present on your handset.

    6. Everything should install perfectly now. Seems there is a little glitch it picks up on or something but it definitely works a treat

    This trick has also worked previously on my 8310 curve with Optus as well so i'm assuming this should work with all devices
