    hi all BBarians,

    Can anyone post a link to how to enable yahoo messenger on BB 8900? I have a unlimited data plan. My msn and rest of the messengers works fine but only yahoo says "this service not enabled for this handheld".

    If you are getting the message "Service not Enabled for this handset" message do the following:


    - Download & Unzip the Yahoo Messenger 2.0 service book (NOT THE APPLICATION) from the attachment.

    - Open Desktop Manager and restore the above file to your device.

    - Manually register your handset with the network via:

    Options > Advanced Options > Host Routing Tables > Menu > Register Now

    - Load your own backup back to the device.

    - Log into your BIS account, goto Help (on left side) and re-send service books

    - Download Yahoo Messenger from mobile.blackberry.com

    It should work fine!
