Now that's a lot of counters! :)

al anon

At first i could not connect through TCP or HTTP but now it works. Looks like a pretty good IM app.


i tried it for my pearl but ended up buying im+ i didnt like the interface of the program


i have been trying to download the application and my curve hs rejected the system. i cant seem to configue the settings to work does my mobile support the application . note it downloaded correctly but no code and such.... need better direction . would like to have this connection and so would my friends ..


Perhaps contacting the staff might help regarding your matter.

try contacting them several times just in case they miss your first e mail.


I am getting errors from the server because the connection is getting lost constantly after I'm logged on. Does anyone know what the case may be? Could it be that beta format is the issue, and I should wait around for the full version?

TCP connection is successful, though again it's after I'm logged on for a few minutes that I get booted.
