Default Verichat 1.93 Download! MSN/ICQ/AIM chat! (T-Mobile works!)

Good news! I have been volunteer beta testing (unpaid) over 10 different Verichat releases between 1.48 and 1.78, and have contributed my feedback. So I am happy to announce this greatly improved version.

Verichat Version 1.78 released
Download Now

New features, including many of my suggestions implemented:
  • Non-BES version, works on T-Mobile!
  • Automatic "Message Cannot Be Delivered" displayed to other people if you're out of reception
  • More reliable message delivery
  • One-key multitasking between multiple active chat sessions: ALT+ENTER
  • Automatically reconnects after poor reception / radiooff / poweroff
  • More stable, crashes less often (Still a work in progress)
  • Preferences Option: Simultaneous AIM login in Verichat and on Desktop
  • Preferences Option: Automatically checks for new versions of Vericaht
Earlier enhancements (if you haven't used Verichat for a long time)
  • MUCH faster performance; scrolling is no longer slow.
  • More compact color-coded display of incoming messages.
  • Unread messages counter
  • Preferences: Alert-on-every-message option (set both idle settings to 0).
  • Preferences: Jump immediately to chat option (no prompting).
  • Three Separately Configurable Alerts: Background vs Foreground vs Inside Chat
  • Alert occurs 1 second before interrupting you, to give you time to pause thumbtyping your email when someone messages you, before Verichat displays. Great for "Jump Immediately to Chat"
Free Trial Restart: If you used Verichat before and had a free trial -- just download it again. Even if your free trial has expired, just download again. With this version of 1.78, your free trial will restart with this newer version, to help you get a new impression of the improved Verichat software in case you were scared away from earlier versions of Verichat.

Just downloaded 1.70b (although when I click 'about' on the hh it says 1.68 ).

I like to view my buddylist in GROUP view.

If someone has an away message active it shows them in another group with their away message next to the new group.

Is this normal? Is there anyway to fix it, or is it a bug?

Jeff

I just want ATTW to stop charging extra kb's on our unlimited data plan

Or, can Verichat use a BB browser port (or whatever) so that all the provider sees is included data transfer?

Did you download the non-MDS version, and did you set up your APN to "wap.voicestream.com"

I ended up with 1.77b being sent to me by the support people at Verichat. Works like a "charm" now that I entered my APN. These people are awesome.

Sort by Status vs. Sort by Group.

Staus sorts aphabetically. Group sorts...uh...randomly? Can you change how 'group' sorts?

Thanks

Jeff

I tried to download the new version to try, but after I download, and install, I get a "your trial is over please purchase a license" message. Is there a way to try the new version before I buy? of do I have to buy to test out version 1.70?

On another note, I tried selecting verichat in the desktop application install, but it gives me the no other apps found message. Verichat is already listed, but I don't know if its my old version or the new version. I'm using desktop ver 4.0.0.30 and have a BB 7510 from Nextel.

Thanks for any help.

Default v1.78b released

We have released v1.78b which resets the trial period for those folks who may have unsuccessfully tried VeriChat before. Please download this version from www.pdaapps.com.

It fixes the lost licensing issue which some people are experiencing.

Thanks,

Strange. I thought it restarted my free trail (after my registration data got deleted), so I thought that was a new feature. I've re-entered the registration info, and will see how long it stays.

Glad to see that 1.78 is out already!

rcg - That's a legitimate question. The reason is that it's not just a software program, it's also a service. Verichat includes a server that they have to run.

Why Verichat and WebMessenger Needs You To Pay For Server Service Annually
  • Staying connected through the unreliable wireless world, roaming, celltower switches
  • Lower bandwidth protocols (lightweight proprietary IM protocol)
  • Lower battery power (less transmissons)
  • Better surviving intermittent reception without momentary disconnections
  • Work around timeout problems
That's why almost all instant messengers for BlackBerry requires you to pay annually. The server runs all the time, 24/7. (And there is no need to hit "refresh" like for SMS based instant messaging, whose operation is often paid by for the cellphone companies) The only ones that does not require you to do so, are ones that connect directly -- and are often not as reliable. Now you know why you have to pay annually -- you are paying for a special server service that is included with the software.
