Ok, thats sounds like what i had to do on the 7290 i had which is fine. however when i got my 8700 IM would'nt work even with a 3rd party app, some technical reason i can't remember what.
Has this barrier been removed on the 8800? I guess you answered that question, messaging will work on the 8800 via 3rd party apps.
