Question about RIM BlackBerry Pearl Smartphone

Open Question

"Service not enabled for this handheld."

Every time I try to sign into my AOL Instant Messenger, I always get a message saying, "Service not enabled for this handheld." I'm figuring it might be the service of mine... But, any thoughts?

    I've been having the same problem. I haven't yet had time to test this possible solution, but thought I'd throw it your way and see if you wanted to try it. There's a forum about all this on pinstack that offers the required service books for download. Afterwords, you'll need to resend your own. I'm sure the folks at PinStack would be glad to help you if needed. Good luck!

Backup contacts or any pertinent information using desktop manager. Then go to options, security, General Settings. Click on option key (Bberry Key). Wipe Blackberry, type blackberry in the screen. Warning this will erase everything off your blackberry but since you have backed it up first you can restore your contacts or pertinent files. When you run through the wipe process you do not have to delete all 3rd party applications but I have found if you are having a memmory problem that can cause this fault you may need to install a memory card of at least 2gb or more then go to options media card and change the prompt to yes so that it will use the card instead of storning on the device. The pearl is notorius for memory issues without using storage card/media card or saving to device instead of card. Check with blackberry.com web for various memory hole issues and suggested fixes.

You will need to speak to your Network Operator and make sure that your Data Bundle is enabled correctly.

You can use the standard alone messanger by going to www.aim.com and download the software. Also, you can use instant messaging if you sign into your mail through the website mail.aol.com From there, look for the yellow running man icon on the right. You can then click on that and sign in AIM (it stands for Aol Instant Messaging).
