hello, im new at this also and I downloaded the Mobile IM on my phone yesterday and it worked fine. I'm with the same carrier so should be working all good. I am not on AOL so maybe there is some problems with AOL. I used it with Yahoo and sent out some test IM's and all worked.

This was a problem on my old EnV with AIM. If your screen name was created with AOL instead of AIM you will need to create a true AIM screen name. You will also run into this problem if you use a screen name that is and email address such as [email address]. See directions above to fix this also. The mobile IM app just seems to have those problems. I guess they figure we should just be happy that they no longer limit us to just 50 names in a special folder on your AIM account or charge for and app like on the PPC.

BeeJive :: JiveTalk mobile messenger - instant messaging to go

I have to say, after reading about Jive Talk here I decided to give it a try (currently on the 30-day free trial they offer). I've tried others, including Ramble and the one Verizon offers on the home page of the browser and Jive Talk is HEAD AND SHOULDERS better. I'll definitely be getting this, especially since it uses data and not text messaging (no reason to increase my text messaging package).
