    hey all I'm new to the forums and site.

    So when the Tour first came out it came with AIM. I had to swap it for another cause the phone started giving me problems. Upon getting the new tour I saw that it didn't come with AIM so I went on a mission to download the app. Turns out there is no AIM for the tour, or is it just me?

    I went to the AOL Mobile site and found a link to send the direct download from the blackberry browser and did that. AIM is downloaded on my phones drive but I can't find it anywhere.

    Help?

    Thanks, Alex.

    I know it's super weird and the tour isn't compatible with beejive. I tried blackberry.com/aim but that doesn't work either.

    Hey Erika it's not on there :/ I tried my downloads folder and every other folder just in case it was hidden. When I check my applications it shows AIM is installed but the icon & AIM itself is nowhere to be found.

    You dont have a folder with IM applications right in it? My Tour (VZW) came with all of them right in there.

    I have a Social Networking folder which initially was home to AIM but when I got the new Tour it wasn't there. What gets me is how my bberry shows AIM is installed on my phone but nowhere to be found. The search module only searches for messages and not anything else so that doesn't work.

    AIM works on the Tour, and you should be able to install it from this link. If you can't find the icon, make sure it's not hidden. Check your subfolders as well.

    You might have to do that thru the desktop version. I'm not really sure.
