    A friend sent me a ink to a messenger upgrade...through BB messenger. I clicked the link. Now there is NO icon. I can't use messenger. I deleted the 5.0 version and re-installed the 4.3. Still no icon. It shows up in my options thought. just can't use it. I bebooted when prompted and also removed the one toenial was opponsite

    I use a Mac OSX and would really like to have messenger back. Thanks.

    re-register on your network then resend your service books.

    go to www.blackberry.com/messenger and download the latest version.

    one of those two should fix it.

    the actual link is www.blackberry.com/send/messenger

    and its only for OS's 4.5 and above. people with 4.3 need to upgrade to 4.5 first. what OS are you running.

    I have OS 4.3.

    And, after re-reading my original post, I have no idea what the last part of that one sentence said--must not have proofed before sending. Sorry! Embarrassed!

    Anyway, I never did get the old version back on my phone, after deleting the new one from the apps. Is there a way to just get the BBM 4.X back instead of the BBM 5.0? All of the OTA links say my phone isn't compatible, which makes sense because I don't have the current OS. I really miss my messenger!

    I'm a little hesitant to upgrade the OS on my phone--see what happened when I jumped into grabbing BBM 5 without knowing better?

    I use a MacBook Pro with PocketMac for syncing now. I have access to a PC at work. If anyone could help walk me through how to use a PC to get messenger I would be grateful forever!
