Default Rim Yahoo Messenger flaky

Please Login to Remove!

I have the Curve 8320 on T-Mobile and have had flaky connection using Yahoo Messenger for BB. It starts out ok then I stop receiving messages from the other person. They see all of my messages on their end. I just don't see anything from them.

If I log back in, I see the offline messages from them.

What is going on? Does anyone else see this behavior? Why is it for flaky? I'm even on WiFi.

I never install the oem IM apps. I delete them all and use JiveTalk.

yeah, they seem useless. strange because at least sms texts seem reliable. these IMs get lost very often.

I have no problems whatsoever with the built in Yahoo messenger.

It could be due to the carrier service in the area I'm in. I'm with T-Mobile and it's always consistently flaky at my work.
