Whoâ€™s been waiting for AIM on their BlackBerry? Whoâ€™s been waiting for ICQ? Wow, thatâ€™s a lot of hands. Well, guess what, folks? Weâ€™ve heard rumblings, but now we have cold, hard URLâ€™s to share thanks to our good, good pal Paulbbc.
The BlackBerry offerings for both of these popular messaging apps seem to be clambering for the doors and ready to be scooped up by eager beavers such as yourselves. Hit this link and get excited for AIM and this one for ICQ.
Iâ€™m having a little trouble with installation, so maybe theyâ€™re not completely set for deployment yet, but Iâ€™m on it, folks. Weâ€™ll keep you in the loop. Just wanted to let you know whatâ€™s up.
One of our diligent readers has commented about his trials and tribulations with the downloads. Kevin had this to say:
I got it installed without an issue, but when I go to sign in, it says â€œPlease visit www.blackberry.com/aim to activate your handheld for AOL Instant Messengerâ€ – but when I go there, the page just says: â€œAOL Instant Messenger for BlackBerry – Downloads via a USB connection are not enabled for this product. Please visit our mobile download site at using the browser on your BlackBerryÂ® smartphone.â€ even though itâ€™s already installed.
