Also, my AIM only allows 30 contacts on my pearl. Is there a way I can customize the list to decide who I want to be on my buddy list.
Thanks in advance.
The OZ Messenger program that comes preloaded on the Pearl uses SMS text and not your data plan. So if you don't have a large SMS plan, I'd suggest not using it. There are several aftermarket IM programs that will use your data package. Look in the aftermarket section of the forum. I have been using the beta version of JiveTalk and it is working great.
