New features with Yahoo! Messenger 2.1 for BlackBerry

Yesterday RIM released a short KB Article on the New Features of Yahoo! Messenger. Although its been out for a short while, RIM has been kind enough to follow this up with a formal Article. After seeing the new updated article from RIM I just checked in case there has also been an updated version but it is still on 2.1.33. I just thought it was nice for RIM to finally offer a change log!!!

  1. I am enjoy to chat with my friends

  2. After all this time, you’d think they would allow us to block everyone except those on our buddy lists. Nothing like being hit on your Blackberry with 500 spam bots.
