I'm doing the beta testing also. It seems to work good, so far its just the basics of chatting. None of the extras of different font size, away message and how you want to view your lists. I'm sure they are working on that, it should be a nice program when it all comes together. I'm not expecting extra fancy with an IM client. Just the stability to stay online untill you log off and if your away, you can put urself as such. I've been using verichat and it knocks you off whenever it feels like it. Sometimes it will log you back on and other times it wont, but u wont know till you go in and look to see the status.
IM+ is still having their issues with the new update. I can receive but not send out messages. Their recent post said it wasnt their side but the users side. I doubt that because I havent had issues with verichat and messaging others. For you that are in the States...I'm late-deafened since 25 and use ip-relay.com. They have a setup so you can link your AIM name and have a personal number for people to call and get ahold of you w/that. Its hard with Verichat because you never know if your online or offline unless your watching it every minute.
If they get that fixed, IM+ will be good to go...the others I've used are...eh
I dont think its much to ask to log on and stay on till you log off though.
I recently got the 7250 thru Verizon and its worked great. Anything I've tried to do online it does, never had an issue with signal either. I'm the normal tech/user buff so I'm used to what works and doesnt with being connected. Hopefully Yak or another program gets the bugs worked out and we all can keep connected till we dont want to be
Lets get the kinks worked out!!!!!!!!
