Default 8700g Instant Messaging

Please Login to Remove!

Does anyone know how to configure the settings for instant messaging on the T-Mobile 8700g?

I have the Instant Messaging softwear (Powered by OZ) installed already.
When I try to log onto Yahoo IM it progresses to 20% then hangs. Then I get messages full of code sent to my inbox.

Once I figure out how to fix the program so that it will log in correctly, I would prefer that any IM's only run within the active chat window and not send messages to my inbox.

Anyone know what I'm talking about or know how to fix it?

Thanks in advance.

For some reason my download kept aborting, saying something about an invalid COD, so I just gave up on it. From past experience, I was never happy about the delays in transmission from this SMS-based system.

So I'm currently testing Verichat and it seems to be working nicely. I'm interested in only Yahoo IM so some of the other free ones (Ramble, etc) aren't an option for me.

Sorry I didn't help your issue - but FWIW...
