| | Lag time on IM clients and managing contacts
Please Login to Remove!
Just getting started in the world of IM. I elected to go with Y! messenger as the standard for the family and decided to try IM+ for my 7100g (Cingular) on BES. Everything seems to be running smoothly, except for the fact that I notice a lag in receiving incoming messages. I have changed the "server polling rate" to "1" under uptions. I assume that this means that IM+ does not run a push technology. To me, a 1 minute polling rate for IM seems to defeat the purpose. Can anyone tell me if Verichat or other options offer true "push" or a more configureable refresh rate?
Also, I notice in IM+ that there is no function to add contacts. Am I missing something? Do I need to log into my PC to manage contacts? Does Verichat allow this from my BB?
