    This program is garbadge, it was great when it worked properly but it is just another proprietary, buggy, waste of space no better then nimbuz I finally rejoiced when I got the offical windows live messenger installed on my 8330 via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Garbage!

    This is the second time I've attempted to use this on my 88 and again it wont connect. It just says "connecting...," then "connection lost, reestablishing..." Great app guys!

    Do you have your TCP settings set?

    I thought I would like this app but I don't. I even tried to like it which makes it worse.

    The confusing thing about it is you can't just add accounts and start IMing. You have to register with them. Not an issue, but that part isn't mentioned, at least not anywhere I looked.

    Then separating text, picture and voice messaging by tabs is just dumb.

    Overall the app looks decent. But its clunky, slow, error after error, and at times confusing. I'll just stick to JiveTalk.

    I love the interface, but the issues with connection are the biggest problems(no I don't have apn settings since I'm CDMA). It reminds me of the connection issues I had with Opera Mini, but at least Opera fixed those to work properly over BIS-B. Too bad - I liked Palringo when it actually works. :-(

    Was working yesterday; won't connect today.

    EDIT: Tried different connection settings, now it works.

    A few things I would like to see -- Capitalization of first letter of sentence when typing messages, Support for BB auto-text, Pop-up when message comes in, different sound for First message, sound alert when selected contacts come online and a simpler chat-screen layout. Thanks!

    Doesn't look like many are happy with this client. I'll look for myself but my hopes aren't very high :P

    Also I frequently look at chat history and email it, or even just copy/paste some chat into other programs. I don't see these options here.

    Oh well I keep getting excited about all these apps but like javtyger I have CDMA and these apps don't play well with it.
