However in the 3 days I have had only a few problems with the software, today when I was chatting with my buddy on Windows Live Messenger my connection must have dropped because I was unable to ping the server, then tried to sign out and it stated it timed out on me and logged off all my other accounts, end result I had to pull the battery and put it back in after that it worked fine. My other question is when I have my Blackberry holstered for a while and then I take it out and go back into JiveTalk sometimes it takes about minute or so to get re-connected is this normal?
In light of the few problems with JiveTalk I downloaded the IM+ trial and wanted to try and use it, but after selecting a buddy IM+ would crash with a Java error, it did that to me various times so i just uninstalled.
So I just wanted to know if anyone has expierenced these problems before and if so did you find a solution? If thier any information that could help narrow down either problem just let me know and I will provide it. Thank you.
