    Everything is cool after numerous installations on multiple devices. This one's a winner!

    How is it working for you?

    Here's a more thorough rundown of my installations of the new Messenger. I tried it on my girl's Curve 8310 (, and two Bolds, one of which has (v2 of latest official build from AT&T). The other one is on the latest OS 5, A friend of mine confirmed that it also works on the Tour.

    The easiest and safest way is to install it (IMO) is through AppWorld, as it is from RIM's official site. To make AppWorld compatible with OS 5, update AppWorld from .17, which likely a lot of you are on, to version .19. Then send yourself the Messenger from RIM's official site here:


    If you want to find it yourself, it is in Social Networking --> Instant Messenger on AppWorld. You can also download it by going to blackberry dot com and pick it up there.

    Anyone have any problems with this?

    Mine gets stuck on the "Starting Download..." status bar then eventually says "BlackBerry Messenger is not available for download in App World."

    Edit: Nevermind. I still couldn't find it in App World, but I had it sent to my e-mail.

    Nevermind, it started to download. Just keep trying.

    Download is really slow. Probably because a lot of people are updating now.

    same here, wont let me accept the licence agreement. looks to me like its not ready at all. why would RIM push it out with these bugs. that is so Microsoft like, releasing something that does not work or works sometimes.

    Mine worked with absolutely no problems downloading, installing, and accepting the license agreement. It looks great. Now all that needs to happen is a new high speed OS needs to drop and everything will be right with the world. At least for my storm that is!
