New Versions Of Google Talk V.2 and Yahoo Messenger V.2 Available

gtalknewbeta.gifIt seems that the CTIA surprise this year is new applications for your BlackBerry. Josep just let me know that new versions of Google Talk and Yahoo Messenger applications are available now. I am currently downloading version 2.0.33 of Google Talk and will be well on my way to trying it out after this review is posted. So far I could not find any changelog but I expect a whole new revision number should count for some new features. The funny part is that Google talk is still in beta. Check out the new versions by going to http://mobile.blackberry.com from your BlackBerry.

  1. I have an issue where I install Yahoo Messenger 2.0.33 for my Blackberry 8700 and it does not appear in the application list. Going to try to find the older version again.

  2. I am so sorry to hear that Ernie. I just heard that the older os 4.1 devices may not work with the new messengers like Gtalk and Yahoo. I don’t know why RIM did not mention this during the install since they have your device version. Personally did you try to upgrade your phone to OS 4.2. I think there is an upgrade available for the 8700 which may fix the issue

  3. My Blackberry is supported through my employer and they’re staying on 4.1 for now. If anyone can point me to a patch or the older Yahoo version that I can do OTA, I’d appreciate it.

  4. Found the solution on another site:

    “Go to Options/Advanced Options/Applications/Modules then scroll down until you see net_rim_yahoomessenger module (v 1.*.*) and delete it. After it deletes, the device will reboot, and when it comes back on, the error is gone and the icon is there.
    -Jason”

    The icon now appears and I can use the 2.0 version as before. Thanks!

  5. I just updated my YM from v1 to v2. How come the V1 icon is still there after I deleted the application before I installed the V2? How can I delete the icon? Thank you…

  6. I just recently upgraded my YM for BB from V1 to V2. Apparently after I deleted the previous version V1 and installed the new Version V2, I can still see the icon from V1 though not working. Can anybody help me about this? How can I delete the old version icon.

    same problem need help …

  8. Farnet you can try to delete the module separately. Go into settings-advanced settings->applications>menubutton>modules and find the ones that say gtalk in them and delete ahoy. You may want to also remove V2 in the applications screen before doing this.

    No warranty implied. Just what I would do :)
