Since the original thread I found is closed
, looks like I have to start this new thread to ask the burning question in my mind: What do I have to do to get a GOOD AIM client on my 8700g on T-Mobile?!?
For Gord only KNOWS what reason, T-Mobile will NOT allow the use of RIM's official AIM client on the 8700g, even though users of the Curve ARE allowed to use it!
And before anyone mentions the much-vaunted Ramble IM... NO. N. O. I've been using Ramble for months, and it SUCKS! I can stay logged in for about 5 minutes, tops, before it logs me off with no warning, interrupting conversations and forcing me to log back in! I had that same problem years ago with the official AIM client on the Color Sidekick, I should NOT be having that problem on a BlackBerry in 2008!!!
Before I used Ramble, I d/led and tried the free trial version of Verichat, which at the time was hailed as the best. Not only did I try it once, when that version of the software didn't work, I waited for a software update, downloaded a newer version, installed it, and it STILL didn't work. It was NEVER, and I mean NEVER able to log me into my AIM account... AT ALL! I didn't have even ONE successful log-in with Verichat! So that's a no go.
So, I ask you all, WHO DO I HAVE TO KILL TO GET A WORKING AIM CLIENT ON MY BB 8700G?!?!?!?
I would prefer responses from those that are using the 8700g on T-Mobile, because our devices seem to have limitations and quirks not present on the 8700s available on other carriers.
Thanks in advance for any advice you can provide.
P.S. I'm using OS version 188.8.131.526 and Ramble version 0.9.10.8.
