| | Using AIM on my new Pearl
Please Login to Remove!
I have been on the internet for 3 hours trying to figure this one thing out. I have read everything, and nothing is simple enough for me to understand it.
I bought my pearl this afternoon and took it out of the box.
From there, I was able to figure out everything. Set up pictures for caller ID, use the camera, access web pages and set up all my email addresses. Everything is working perfectly, as even my activation email from this forum was pushed directly to my Pearl.
I just can't get AIM to work. Like I said, I've read everything, but it seems that nothing starts at square one.
I go to the icon on the home screen for MEdia Net, and it says New! AIM. I click that and it loads and loads and then gives me an error, saying server may be busy.
I have read things about IM+, Ramble, GoogleTalk. Do I need to download one of these to be able to use AIM on my Pearl? Do I have to access AIM from a menu different from MEdia Net?
Like I said, I took the Pear out of the box and everything else came so easily. This AIM thing is giving me a headache.
I have Cingular, and I bought the unlimited package for 39.99/month. The saleswoman assured me that this included unlimited internet browsing as well as IM.
Can someone please tell me, as simply as possible, how to sign in to my AIM account and begin chatting on my new Pearl?
