Default 8120 and AIM problems (TMO)

Please Login to Remove!

Just got my new 8120 and the AIM will not work. It tells me 'service not enabled for this device) when I try to login. Now, I tried to send service books, but I am having issues changing the PIN and IMEI for my account online (cc told me that I was in provisioning still). Would this be the reason AIM doesn't work at the moment? I verified I have the service book (wireless village - AIM [smp].

Anyone?

Unless it has recently changed, AIM does not work on the the 8100. Most people recommend Jivetalk, which does work.

which AIM app are you using? also make sure your APN settings are correct under options > advanced > tcp.
for att the settings are
APN: wap.cingular
username: [email address]
password: CINGULAR1

for Tmo its
APN: wap.voicestream.com
username and password leave blank
