    I NEED SOME HELP PLEASSSSSEEEEEEEE

    Advertisement



    I bought an 8800 and the cingular salesman lied to me telling me i could use yahoo messenger. Well, Ive found out it wont work but ive been reading the threads on how to get it.

    The problem is im a novice to the 8800. Can someone help me put YIM on my 8800.

    I am going to asia for 3 weeks and want to be able to message my wife.

    my yahoo messenger is "my1truefriend2000" or you can email me at skrueger3@aol.com.

    I would appreciate any help anyone of you can give me.

    Steve

    Do you have a data plan? If so you should be able to put an IM program on your phone and you should be able to use it with no problem. Also what is the problem? Like do you know of an IM program and it just won't work or do you just need help all around?

    I had the same problem. I had yahoo for a few weeks then it started messing up. Even becoming invalid and I got locked out of using it. I finally gave up and got a blackberry email acct and a gmail acct. I was told they're a lot more user friendly of course I had someone else set mine up but I'm sure someone else can guide you thru it! Good luck!~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Check out JiveTalk. It is a great program and you can use it to log in under all your I'm accounts such as AOL, gmail, msn all at the same time. It is still in either alpha or beta testing right now but just email them at support@beejive.com and they will send you the program.
    Hope that helps.

    Do a search on pinstack for yahoo messenger on cingular. Cingular doesn't allow it but there are work arounds and they work as I'm using it now. Any questions just ask me~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Yahoo definitely works with Cingular, I have many friends on there that talk to me all the time.

    Try the link above and let us know how it goes.

    Re: I NEED SOME HELP PLEASSSSSEEEEEEEE

    My suggestion would be to go through the yahoo page like normal. Sign in as usual and get to the page where you change your phone. Change the phone to the 8800 series. Send yourself a message. You will be able to repsond to messages as you normally would. I'm not sure if you had the icon on your phone or not. This should work. If not I would call Cingular and request the BB specialist department. I didn't know this existed until I owned a BB for 3 months and didn't have the BB service to bring in the emails. I hope this helps. Those IT reps are pretty sharp. They usually have the answer to most questions.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~what you are talking about is sms messaging. That cost money. If you have unlimited data with low cost international roaming, I would go for jive talk or if your wife has a BB, use BB messenger
