Default yak-on users..question

Please Login to Remove!

After searching I kept seeing yak-on come up the most so I figure its probably one of the best aim/message setups there is out there.

My question is this, I know everyone doesnt like the SMS based AIM clients, but with these data only clients does it mean that if I'm on AIM no phone calls are going to come through?

Thanks, J

I use verichat. And when a phone call comes through verichat signs off then signs back in after the the call is over. Im sure Yak is about the same.

I know I can recieve calls while yak-on is running. I've never paid enough attention to tell whether or not yak-on signs out during a phone call.

As far as I can tell, Yak-On doesn't sign itself off while I'm on the phone. I think that it's going through AOL's oscar interface and that might keep you signed in until you force it to sign off. I do ocassionally get the 'have tried to sign you in 3 times unsucessfully' error message, though.

I've noticed that the connection tends to stay resident, though. This is because I can login to AIM Triton on my laptop and forget to sign off Yak-On and get the almighty "you're signed on to 2 computers' message.

This might be a question to ask SoftCentral...I've found that they're really good on replying to any questions submitted!
