Default Verichat Bouncing

Please Login to Remove!

Hi All -

New BB 7290 on ATT user from Treo600 by force of the company. I have successly set up and used Verichat to connect to AIM,Yahoo,MSN from my home location in IN and have used it in NJ.

I am currently traveling in PHX and this morning the only connection was MSN and this afternoon it is AOL.

When I watch the messages along the bottom of the screen, it continues to read "Connecting to...." and "Disconnecting...".

I seem to have a very good signal. I need Yahoo to work here.

Has anyone experienced this before?

Thanks,

Sully

I think you might be having the same problem I am having. I think we're running out of socket connections. Try this: When that's happening pull the battery out and put it back in. Upon rebooting try and connect again, if you get into all 2-4 IM systems, then you probably ran out of socket connections. I'm wondering if anyone knows of a J2ME app that will show you what open sockets you have (sort of like netstat -a on Window). Does such a thing exist?

BTW, my understanding is that VeriChat is supposed to be working on a new version of their product that will tunnel all IM traffic over one socket instead of one socket per IM network. Hopefully that'll help.
