One of the joys of BlackBerry ownership is the BlackBerry Messenger application. It’s a neat little program which is frequently used by BB addicts to communicate with one another. It’s quick, easy, and comes pre-loaded on all new BlackBerry models. What if you don’t have it, though? You might have deleted it to clear some memory; you might have thought it unnecessary at first; or you just might have screwed up at some point. In any case, it’s not difficult to recover. The easiest way is to use BlackBerry Desktop Software. After connecting your Berry, select Apploader, then Add-Remove. Check BlackBerry Messenger, or make sure it’s checked. Select finish. As with all Desktop Manager transactions, make sure you back up your device before executing. You never know what can go wrong during the installation process (like tripping over the USB cord when running out to answer the phone…grumble grumble grumble). If that’s not doing it for you, or if you don’t have Desktop Software, don’t fret. There’s still another way. You can go to this site, which will allow you to download Messenger. You need Internet Explorer (seriously?) with Active X. If you’ve got that, you can get Messenger. So, if you’ve made the mistake of deleting BlackBerry Messenger and want it back, you can reverse course with either of these methods. As a final note, you can also use the Desktop Manager solution to reinstall BlackBerry Maps.
