    Hey Texas Mom,

    I just got my phone yesterday and was having the same trouble you were logging in to Yahoo Messenger.

    Apparently, you have to go on your phone to MediaNet, then scroll down to the Mail and Messaging category and download the Mobile IM.

    Once that's installed, you'll get an Instant Message icon that will show up in your Applications folder and from there you can log onto Yahoo, AOL, or Windows Live Messenger.

    I have an 8310, so things may not be exactly the same, but I'm not sure as I'm a newbie myself.

    Hope this helps!


    PS Apparently, I don't have enough posts to include the URL on the ATT site that walks you through this, but if you need it, feel free to contact me and I'll send it to you.
