    I just got one myself, and faced the same problem.

    Unfortunately, the solution can be a bit tricky: you need to upgrade the operating system (OS) in your BlackBerry from the current (4.3, I'm assuming) to the 4.5 version. The 4.5 version will support viewing YouTube videos.


    There are four basic steps, and I'll include a link that will have complete instructions. This is a short overview of what will happen:

    1. Download and install the latest version of the desktop software (Desktop Manager, probably version 4.6) to your computer

    2. Download and install the latest version of the device OS (version 4.5) to your computer

    3. Download, install, and use a program called "JL_cmder" to clean out the old OS from your device (this part can be scary)

    4. Use the AppLoader in the Desktop Manager to load the 4.5 OS into your device


    The Pinstack forums can explain this far better and in greater detail than I can:


    Here is the link where you can find the 4.5 OS:



    I had a little trouble with the whole process at first, but was successful after running it with a Windows XP computer rather than a Vista machine.

    After everything's been installed and running properly, just use your WAP browser to visit www.youtube.com and click on a video to watch it.

    Good luck.
