Gtalk and Yahoo! BlackBerry clients updated

As if Facebook wasn’t enough yesterday, we also got a Gtalk and Yahoo! chat client update up to version 2.0. After installing Gtalk here, there are decent upgrades, mainly displaying profile pictures, as noted by Robb, but I’m sure there’s plenty of other new features there that regular Gtalkers will readily spot. You can pick up the new version of Gtalk and Yahoo! Messenger over the air at http://mobile.blackberry.com on your mobile browser.

Is it just me or is the new version 2.0 icon for Gtalk really huge?

Same problem with my VZW 8703e.

I wiped my device and reinstalled everything, but did not attempt to reinstall the Yahoo Messenger. I’ll await advice from others, or until the bugs are worked out.

Hi, exactly the same happened to my BB Pearl 8100.

I just dowloaded both application upgrades and they are GREAT! I had no problems at all.

If you guys go to the advanced options under applications and delete the OLD Yahoo Messenger client and then reboot, the new Yahoo Messenger should work. I was having the same problem and I noticed that and it worked for me.

I can not download it from PC (user restrictions). As far as I know, the newest YM version is working only on 4.2 versions (and afterwards). I have an 8700.
I would just need the previous YM version…

Jay- Thank you, thank you, thank you for the fix!

Dear Blackberry-

Would it be that hard to put this into an immediate fix (or at least post a message saying what to do if you run into this problem)instead of ignoring every potentially negative thing that came your way? Sad. Disturbing.

Thank you Jason!

I am very disappointed about how both Blackberry and Yahoo! guys are helping out users solve this. I spent a lot of time searching both sites for helpful info. Zero results!

Thank God there are search engines and people willing to help!

I know that some people have been having problems with installing the new GTALK 2.0 on the Blackberry. I have a 8100 and figured out that if you update the software on the Blackberry GTALK 2.0 will work. The software must be 4.2.1 or greater for GTALK 2.0 to work. Once you update the software you might have to download GTALK again.

It works great.

I followed the link, downloaded and installed Yahoo Messenger successfully. Could it be blocked by company policy ? But there is no icon showing. I check in Options|Advanced options|Applications and in the list I am seeing Yahoo Messenger 2.0.38 but I just can’t run it.

Please advise.

There’s no delete option for deleting the modules in the Blackberry Curve. Anybody find a way to delete modules for the Curve?

Does anyone know how to delete a module on the Curve 8320? The only thing it will let you do is edit permissions.

Heyy everyone,the solution on this forum is for the people who alrdy had yahoo messnger v1.0 on thr blackberry n faced prblms on upgrading it to v2.0 .I have a blackberry curve 8310 and dint had v1.0 ever but still yahoo messenger v2.0 aint workin.I have resinstalled n deleted the software umpteen times.bt still there is no icon in the menu.in options it shows tht it is installed.same goes for gtalk.I think the problem needs to be mailed to bb and yahoo both so they can check on it.everyone who reads on to this forum shd mail it to the them so they can take on this problm botheribg so many of us…make a move people

if someone comes out with a solution for this problm do share.we ll all appreciate it a lot
