Default AIM Running Man.. just keeps running.

Please Login to Remove!

I've got a Pearl: Everytime I try to sign-in with AOL Instant Messenger, the status indicator stays at "20%, Signing On" or reaches "80%, Receiving Buddies." I've never actually seen the yellow man stop running/sign-in. It usually ends with "We're sorry. The service cannot process your request right now. Please try again later." I've been trying a few times for over a week now... and everything else on my phone works fine, in terms of web-browsing, push e-mail, etc.

So. Anyone know what to do? Maybe I'm just signing in at the wrong times. I'll keep trying, but in the meantime, bless me with your BB wisdom, gracias.

If you are using the OZ Messenger program, that is just an issue with it. Unless you have a large SMS text package, that is not a good programm to use. Look in the aftermarket software section for other IM programs that use your data package.

You can try jive-talk or yak-on it is more reliable than the OZ messenger.
