    Ok, I am a first time Android User coming from a BB. So maybe there is some easy fix that I do not know, if so that would be awesome, and it would be great if someone could help me out. Anyhow, I downloaded Yahoo Messenger from the market place and then when I try to get it to run after signing in it gives me this:

    Sorry!

    The application Messenter (process com.yahoo.mobile.client.android.im) has stopped unexpectedly. Plese try again

    Force close Report


    I have force closed a bunch of times trying to come back into it and I get it every time I try to start Messenger back up. I have uninstalled and reinstalled it 3 times now, but I keep getting this same error. Only thing that isnt working right on my phone so far. But its getting annoying!

    Thanks for any help that comes my way!

    May have to wait for an update. I stopped updating Yahoo Messenger a couple of months ago on my X. They keep mangling the software with each update.

    You might try to find an older version of the apk and see if that works.

    My wife's Thunderbolt does the same thing. But after playing with it awhile, I found out the problem having something to do with the 4G, since I could get Messenger to work flawlessly with my home wifi. I have the Thunderbolt as well, but I'm not having these problems at all.

    I had the exact same problems. I uninstalled it and am using eBuddy right now. I havent tried it in 3G area or with 4g disabled yet. I might try that. But this is an apparent problem they they need to update.

    I too have gotten this message and have uninstalled/reinstalled a couple times with no resolve. I haven't tried forcing to 3G from 4G to see if that resolves but still Yahoo needs to fix this quickly...please!

    Change to 3G before logging into yahoo. It is a problem with 4G. I have been using it just fine on 3G since the last time I posted.

    They recently updated and added some nice new tools. Like you can logged in on your PC and phone now and added Facebook intergration with lots of bug fixes. I would suggest trying this new version have zero issues with it so far.

    it only occasionally crashed for me, until it updated itself to 1.4. now every time i go to open it i get the error message, if i try to go via the notification panel it errors out.
    what irritates me is there is no downgrade option in the market and i have no idea how to save one rather important conversation.

    Hi all,

    Just curious if anyone has had trouble receiving pics via yahoo messenger? I used to be able to before the update but now I just get an unspecified error message when someone sends me a pic.

    I tried using Yahoo mail app several months ago but ended up uninstalling it. I don't have a solution to offer for that problem, just some advice to offer. The HTC stock mail app works really well with Yahoo and there's no banner ads!
