But what is funny is that if WM is a single socket connection, then why is it that sometimes 1 or 2 of the IM services log me off? What's annoying about this is that it wouldn't log back on.

Some additional info: If you have trouble logging into WM consistently, it may be time to do a hard reboot (removal of battery). I have a hunch that (for Nextel at least) when using WM for too long of a period, something happens and you lose the MDG connection which renders WM useless. I test this by going into Reqwireless' WebBrowser and if I can;t view websites, then it's time to reboot. This does nto seem to affect the NOL browser however I wonder if this affects the DC or cell calls.
I went ahead and emailed Webmessenger support with my issues, as well as your post. Hopefully they'll give us an answer.

And the search continues for an IM program that actually works how it's supposed to...

Default Verichat - bypass BES?

Hi,

I recently got a blackberry 7290. At first I had a personal account using the BWC while I waited for my work to sort out some cost issues. Verichat worked like a charm during this period using the TCP APN settings.

I subsequently changed my package to BES. I haven't been able to confirm this, but it seems like my work not only runs an older version of the BES server, but also doesn't allow browsing etc through the BES server.

Here is my problem, I can successfully connect using IM+ with the WAP settings, but I cannot get Verichat to connect using the TCP settings rather than the BES settings. This happens even if I select "T-Mobile, non-BES" in the connection settings. I actually tried the other connection option as well and that also didn't work.

Does anyone have a suggestion on how I can connect with Verichat, but not using the BES server?

Thanks

Yeah, what's up with that? And I can't re-connect to AIM when this happens without removing the battery. Ugh.

Default New Free AIM Client for the BlackBerry

There is a new IM client for the BlackBerry called Ramble IM. It is free and only for AOL IM right now, but it is a thick IM client that uses the Mobile Data Service (if you have it activated by your System Adminstrator) to provide persistant view of your Buddies and allows you to chat with them as if you were sitting at a desktop computer. There is no extra software to install on your BES and no redirection of your IM messages to some server. It is a pure IM experience on your BlackBerry.

Ramble IM

All you need to do is read the freeware license agreement and give it your email address. They will send you the Over The Air (OTA) install link directly to your email address so you can load it right onto your device.

Causerie. Their first beta version had support for this and apparently they realized and took it out. I emailed them and they wrote back saying that ST is only for Enterprise Users. I was only 1 user who needed ST on mobile device and they did not give me the access. I sent another email and they gave me a free copy.

The first version brought the ST buddy list both from our public and private domain. It was exactly like Yahoo, AIM etc. plugged in my user name, password and server name of our ST server and it got connected automatically.

I did not get the new update for Causerie Enterprise.

Default I forgot to post a quick review of QuickIM

QuickIM quick review

QuickIM instant messenger software allows you to connect to public MSN networks and chat with friends from anywhere you are. QuickIM is also available for corporate networks and can connect to private instant messaging networks running QuickIM server software.
QuickIM for BlackBerry uses available BES/MDS or operator proxy based TCP connections to connect directly to the instant messaging network. The positive point being your chat messages are not intercepted by a third party gateway. The drawback of this is when you lose GPRS coverage, your friends will see you offline. But may be it's not a too big issue since you are anyway unable to answer to your friends messages if you are out of coverage.
The application weighs less than 110kb, you need to make sure you have full internet access in order to run it. QuickIM provides a support forum with relatively detailed information on configuring the device networking and the corporate BES (useful in some cases).
Classic messenger features (buddy list, emoticons, multiple chat rooms) are present, plus some unique features such as the QuickText feature to pre-record useful message templates and the last received message scroller. Overall, the messenger has a simple user interface. The messenger can be configured to run in background, in case of new messages coming in, you'll be alerted by a message popup and a sound signal.
The pricing of QuickIM is one time fee as opposed to annual subscription fee.
The software can be obtained from http://www.quickim.com

Not sure how many of you out there are using VeriChat on a BB with Nextel service. While I have VeriChat running, I can not get alerted or radio'd. It tells the initiating party "User in Data Mode" or something like that.

Anyone else have that issue? Is there a workaround?

Thanks,
Auggie

Default IM using the new IM App on TMO 7290

Mark or Anyone Else Knowledgable,

I have just upgrade to a TMO 7290. I downloaded the IM client from the TMO site and installed it.

I used the Search (rackin' up those search points ) for IM and found references to charges for SMS and that we should use Verichat.

My question is: Does the IM client on the 7290 from TMO get charged as SMS or as part of the data plan?

Thanks!

SMS.

I have used both SMS and data Instant Messagers in the past, so here is how they compare:

SMS Pros: When you are idle (i.e. no messages being sent or received), your processor is not working to keep the connection open and thus you are not using up your battery. Also, if you go out of range, you do not have to worry about it signing you off and then having to sign back on. The server simply holds your messages the same way it holds your regular SMS messages until you come back into range.

SMS Cons: Your buddy list does not update on its own. You have to choose to update the buddy list -- usually this is an option on the menu "update buddy list".

Data Pros: When a buddy signs on, you see them pop up on your list right away. Less cost if you have an unlimited data plan

Data Cons: It uses your battery up if you stay connected. Also, when you go out of range, you get disconnected from the server sometimes.

With T-Mobile you can get 1000 SMS messages for $6.99 which should be enough unless you chat on AIM constantly.

QuickIM web site says, "Classic messenger features (buddy list, emoticons, multiple chat rooms) are present, plus some additional features such as the QuickText feature to pre-record useful message templates and the last received message scroller."

I can't find any emoticons on my version J2ME Edition 2005 build #116. I have posted a message on the QuickIM tech board but have had no response. Does anyone have emoticons on their QuickIM?
