Please Login to Remove!

Found on the PDAapps web site. Is this the end of Verichat?

This Product Discontinuance Notification is to inform you of the intention of Nokia to discontinue selling the VeriChat product effective immediately

Looks like great news for IM+, I have always used IM+ thank goodness and not Verichat.

Well, at least switching isn't a really big deal. There are lots of other choices.

One thing I like about Verichat though is the fact that when data connectivity is broken for some reason, it will mark me as "away", and then automatically go back to "available" when data connectivity is restored. What other IM products have that feature?

Well I have to say though that their Bots were very useful at times.

But I wonder when the servers will be shut down.

Thumbs down

Their bots were handy when they wouldn't force it to hang on login. :/

Good riddance. The only shame here is that they probably got a decent amount of money for it.

Wonder if they really sold it? Or are just shutting down because too much competition in the space.
