Moto Q and Yahoo Instant Messenger

by dmsmith99    May 24, 2007, 10:53 PM

I recently switched from a Verizon VZ6700 Smartphone to a Moto Q on Verizon. On the Moto Q, i have been having a problem accessing yahoo mobile messenger via the web browser..web address

What happens is one time i will go to that address, and the second menu choice is correctly "messenger", which when selected will take me to a messenger login screen. on most occasions though, the menu choice changes to "messenger info" (instead of messenger). when this occurs and i select it, it takes me to a screen explaining how you can download a verizon Instant Messenger program for "get it now" phones. So i cannot get the log in screen in this case.

Just to be clear, i went to a verizon store and took one of their demo units with the VZ supervisor assisting me, and that hardware (also the Moto Q) gave the right menu the first time, but when i went back to that web address again, it had switched to the "messenger info" screen.

so effectively, i'm without Yahoo IM since I've gone to the Q. anyone have any ideas what may be going on here? i've also got a help request out to Yahoo and Motorola, with no conclusion yet as to what is causing the problem. Someone told me it was just a possible cutover on menus at yahoo, but why then am i having no similar problems on my Cingular Blackberry accessing the same site...

any ideas out there?
