RIM has quietly released updates for all their instant messaging clients to version 2.1.42. I find this rather funny since it seems like only a few weeks ago that they had updated them to 2.1.41 but as always seems to be the case with RIM application releases, their was no change log provided, nor any real announcement for it either.

Now hopefully there are some changes within these applications, but at this point I can't really find anything different about them. If you have noticed anything, please post what it is in comments so that others may know as well. Now RIM, where the heck is our new Facebook application at?

RIM Updates All IM Applications!

Storm builds are different and umm..in any event you still need to update cause currently Storm builds are at 2.2.31 :)

blackberry.com/instantmessaging and select Google Talk. It will upgrade you from 2.2.22 to 2.2.31. I'm not sure why it doesn't pick up the upgrade in the App Center. Mine doesn't either.

Looks like 2.2.31 (storm) shows the complete Friend Details when a name is highlighted, instead of truncating it. That's all I see right now.

And to update the storm, you have to download from the link above. Its not coming up in App Center.

I am downloading the IM clients from RIM site now and all are coming up with the version of 2.2.31 and not 2.1.42. I am using a BB Storm.

Unless I am looking at the wrong thing mine says 2.2.22 is installed on my Storm (in the Application Center) and I remember it being updated last month.

I tried both hard boot and take out @gmail.com but i cant connect Gtalk...
Anyone has solutions?

Did they offer up an even newer update than was reported here? I have 2.2.22 on all of these applications.

Hm... maybe its just me but i didnt see AIM on that link to update. And why wont by BB Storm pick up the new update on the Application Center if theres all these new additions?

I went to install these, and it said "Would you like to replace version 2.4.3 with version 2.1.41.... how is this possible?!

I've been having problems with AIM for about a week now. Couldn't sign in, would get an error every time. Then when I decided to delete the app and re-download it, it said my phone wasn't compatible. This version seems to be working out great. Problem solved.

No update available for Windows Live Messenger on that Link. My Storm shows 2.2.22. I'm running .75. Is there an update or not? What's the deal?

I have Windows Live Messenger 2.1.37 how many versions behind am I, and how do I update?

Curve 8900

I had higher versions (2.2.22) on my Storm than this article talked about as well, and I'm still on .75. To upgrade, I used my Storm browser,went to http://mobile.blackberry.com, clicked IM & Social Networking, and found links to AIM, Yahoo!, MSN, and Google Talk. Also some links for ICQ, Facebook, and a few others, if you don't have the latest versions by chance already.

I updated my Storm AIM from 2.2.26 to 2.2.31. It seems to fix the frequent disconnection issue (session lost when idle, sometimes just under one hour, without any warning).

Update: never mind. Disconnection issue still there, bummer.

I have a curve 8330 on Bell...
All both FB and WLM do not appear to have been updates.
WLM hasnt been working anyway, so I was hoping that was fixed, and a Facebook App LEAK would be slick...
or..

howabout a BBM UPDATE ???
Blackberry Messenger:
Version: 1.0.94
Released: 2005-12-06

2005 ?!~!???

I have been having a problem with WLM where I do not get people's messages and mine time out a lot and are simply not set. I updated to the new one out for the storm, but the issue is still there. Battery pulls and unintall/reinstalls do not fix the issue. :(

Theres some commenters here that are complaining where the updates are. Use your BB browser to go to http://mobile.blackberry.com to get the updates to the IMs cause if your using the Desktop Manager it won't work. i tried then downloaded the updates manually through the website with the BB browser.

Only updated WLM and Yahoo cause i use them more then AIM and Gtalk.

thanks for the heads up about the updates.

Hi,

Just update all my messenger clients. Windows Live Messenger and Yahoo Messenger work fine. Google Talk does not. Get an error "Username and Password do not match". Worked earlier.

Even now, this works from my PC client. Is there any way I can roll back to the earlier version ?

Cheers,
Krish

I can't set my pic on yahoo messenger. I click the pic I want just like I did on the previous versions but it won't set the pic. Bummer!

THE ONLY DIFF I C IZ THAT WHEN I GO ON AIM IT DOESNT SHOW IM MOBILE AND RIM NEED AN UPDATE SO THAT I CAN PPLS STATUS MESSAGE AND ICON. THEY ALSO NEED TO HAVE AND UPDATE SO WE CAN SET OUR OWN STATUS MESSAGE

I keep getting the 2.1.33 update only and not the .42 so where can i get the newer one. Yes ive gone to the blackberry mobile site already.
