About Service Book for BlackBerry IM client (Yahoo messenger, Gtalk, AIM, MSN):

The IM client need BlackBerry Service to work. If you don’t have BlackBerry Plan is doesn’t work.

More info here




– Download the Yahoo Messenger 2.0 service book

– Open Desktop Manager and restore it to your device.

– Manually register your handset with the RIM network via the HRT editor: Options > Advanced Options > Host Routing Tables > Menu > Register Now

– Load your own backup back to the device.

Log into your BIS account (the same thing you did when you first set up your BB people!) and re-send service books

– Download Yahoo Messenger from

* If applicable, regenerate encryption keys for Desktop Manager or BES. If you’re on a BES, again, make sure your BES admin can create a policy allowing Yahoo IM traffic.

** If the service does not work right from the install, try doing a hard reset (pulling/reinserting battery).


The Red text it mean you must have BB Plan

    Hey there anworm,

    great job you are doing here!
    But unfortnatly the way(s) you discribed to enable the browser don’t work on my BB 7230 (OS v4.0.0.188)!
    The reason is simple: I can’t load the service books onto my BB by BDM! I tried to enable legacy SB restore mode but nothing happens on my BB model by holding ALT and pressing S B E B.
    Is there any other method to add service books?
    I’m using a prepaid card and have no BB-Option/Service.
    The BB is unlocked and i’ve also removed the IT policy!
    I’ve removed the battery and inserted it again. Also reinstalled the OS.
    I’ve tried to upload the service books with BDM v4.0/ v4.5/ and v5.0.
    I hope there is a solution to this problem.
    Maybe an older OS version where it is possible to load service books manually?

    Best regards!

    Thanks for great help. I have got a blackberry 7290 as a gift from one of my students. It is an outdated model with no extra feature except browsing but at a price that is beyond the reach of an average Indian. my service provider is Airtel. I tried all of your details to activate the browser by updating the service book. The icon appeared but it did not connect. It gave the following message:

    “The Currently Configured Browser profile, with CID of “Browser Confiq” does not have an associated protocol stack registered with the browser. YOu must either change to another Browser configuration (via Browser Options to Browser Configuration) or load a Browser protocol stack for this CID.”

    my SP’s apn is : and i also got its dns no. also.

    I removed IT policy, reinstalled the OS twice and then downgrade it. Unfortunately, I internet to running good in 7290 through Opera Mini and bold browser but when I was installing a theme my phone got error and since then non of the browser is running. I erased all the software manually and reinstalled OS but it still didn’t work.

    YOur help will be highly appreciated.

    Thank you

    Hi Anworm, thanks for the great help. Service books worked perfectly on my BB Storm 9530 with device OS 4.7. But unfortunately I could get the browser after upgrading to OS 5.0 by using these service books. Though service books were properly uploaded and browser was visible, but after a battery pullout, browser is gone. Please help, am I missing something.


  5. Helo there, well I have fully read and find that your case is rather perceptive as it comes with a good deal of good info. Well, was wondering whether you would like to exchange links with my web portal, as I am looking forward to build web links to further amplify and gain better web exposure for my web site. I don’t really mind you putting my web links at the sitewide page, just getting this web links on this particular web page is more than enough. By the way, would you be kind enough be kind enough to contact me at my web space if you are keen in the link exchange, I would really like that. Best wishes from me and I hope to hear from you very soon!

    I used ur wifi sb on my 9550. It works.
    However I have a query.

    When using BB with WiFI capability, pl tell me – once I enable data plan, when I am in WiFi zone, How do I ensure that wifi is used for data & not my EVDO connection?
    If I switch off data, then wifi also doesn;t work.
    If Data is ON, I am not sure if wifi is being used or expensive data ???
    Pl advice

    I have an unlocked 9630 Tour world phone… but it was on Sprint network. I want to use it on a different CDMA carrier, Verizon. If I change the vendor ID will this allow me to program ‘over the air’ from dialing *228? Thank you

    I have a 9360 Apollo Curve from Koodo Mobile (Telus subsidy) it works great. Browser hack works very well. I refuse to use the email hack with Shangmail because of expiry dates. I can’t have my email just stop working or run out the date I’m on the road somewhere. So I use LogicMail now. I used your browser hack only I had to do a little exporting and modification so the book didn’t get written over when Koodo pushed the books to my phone a little tricky to get working with OS7 but definitely worth it. Browser Hack, TCP4BIS hack, provisioning, wappush, the only thing I can’t figure out is the Maps service book i change it to look exactly like the one in OS7 so it wont get written over and then just my own touch to it. Under IT Policy in options menu, it displays my browser service book and my maps [lbs] whatever service book. But for some reason the gps n maps only last about 20 mins after a battery pull and then the altogether stops running. I think ithat one service book is getting overwritten. I dunno .
