    Cool OZ Messenger download - anyone know how?

    Hi!

    I am new to this website, and am so hopeful that someone can help me out!

    T-Mobile is my provider.

    I had a lovely Pearl 8100 for 2 years, and just this past spring upgraded to a Pearl Flip. I don't need or want a data plan.

    But.... with the Flip, my OZ messenger has gone away to be replaced with one that REQUIRES a data plan to log on to AIM.

    When I first upgraded this spring, I used the Device Switch Wizard, and it transferred my OZ over. It won't this time....

    Frustrated beyond belief. I've had all sorts of cell phones that were nowhere near as sophisticated as the Pearl Flip and had AIM access.

    T-Mobile was less than helpful - buy the data plan.

    I asked them to send OZ Messenger to me - I can connect to the internet via wi-fi to download anything, but they said, no, even with that you need the data plan. I tried arguing and pleading, stopping just short of begging and bribery ;-)

    Anyone have any idea how I can get OZ messenger set up on the Flip?

    I've searched all over - and have found a .cab file, but I don't know how to use that.

    Although I've been addicted to my blackberry for over 2 years now, I don't have any "fooling around with the applications" or os stuff, so... if you can possibly help, really detailed directions would be greatly appreciated...

    Thank you so much in advance!!!

    I fixed it!!

    :haha::haha:Well, I don't know how I managed it -

    I uninstalled my "newest version" of desktop manager, installed an older one (V4.3), and then did the whole "Switch Device Wizard" again.

    This time, it did transfer my OZ Messenger Application, and it is working like a charm.

    I don't know how to extract it from my old Pearl to help anyone else out - but at least folks know that if they can somehow get it loaded in the Flip, it does work....

    So.... I'm happy!
