Default AOL instant Messageing on Pearl

Please Login to Remove!

How come whenever i sign onto my screen name i can only see 30 buddies on my buddy list? Or just one specific group. Why can't i see everyone? The default messaging app sucks the proverbial *EDIT*. Does anyone know a fix for this or am i just plain and simply SOL?

The program never worked correctly for me, as well. I would recommend you get another application.

Any reason you have to use such foul language in your posts? We try to keep this place suitable for all ages, your post is not. Would you mind editing it? Thanks, much.

Thanks. There are lots of other apps which perform the same function, better. You will need to pay, but JiveTalk is way better.

I had the same problem with the app that came with the phone. I went and downloaded jivetalk as recommended by many people on this forum and I'm in the middle of my month trial and love it so far. I'll probably end up paying for it.

thanks

I use beejive JiveTalk. It is perfect. It does AOL while displaying large numbers of users and multiple groups. There is one called IM+ that does it too, but its way over priced and is less stable than JiveTalk. They provide 30 days trial also, and is only $19.95 after the trial period is over. IM+ is $49 after a 5 day trial for a less stable product. While IM+ does myspace, Beejive support said they will be supporting it soon.
