    Do you have a BlackBerry data plan (BIS)? If not, the native Windows Live Messenger app will not work.

    I don't think I have it, because I don't carry data plan, Do I need to carry data plan to have BIS?

    Yes, BIS stands for BlackBerry Internet Service. If you don't have a data plan on your BlackBerry, then you don't have BIS, and therefore cannot use any internet-based applications like Windows Live Messenger or the Browser.

    I believe you can't even use them through wifi.

    I have mine on TMO and I have BIS. I still get the "services not enabled for this device" pop up. I read somewhere here that when the phone is unlocked this messenger will NOT work. My yahoo works so, I don't quite understand it .

    There is no Skype for BlackBerry from AT&T. Only VZW has the Skype for BlackBerry.

    I am having the same issue with my 9550. The phone is unlocked and I have a data plan with T-Mobil but the same error pops up. I can't figure this out. My BB messenger works but not the MSN Messenger. Its driving me nutz!
