Instant Messenging via Wi-Fi

Does IM not work with wi-fi and only through Sprint internet? I keep getting the error "Server is temporarily unavailable (code:500)"

Re: Instant Messenging via Wi-Fi

If I'm not mistaken the instant messaging in some way makes use of the SMS network for sending and receiving messages in order to cut down on power usage, which would explain why it can't function over WiFi.

Re: Instant Messenging via Wi-Fi

Oz, included on the phone, goes through SMS. I like it because I can close the program and still get IMs without using any extra battery life.

OZ is okay, sometimes, but what really sucks is that a lot of the times, IMs can be delayed between 2-10 minutes

it makes conversations a real pain.

I could open up slick/jivetalk/OZ at the same time, and sick and jivetalk would show up instantly, and then OZ would chime in a few minutes later, with all the messages, like one huge lump sum... kind of annoying


I will try the OstraTalk, becuase Slick is CRAP on this phone, because it's not VGA-aware.

Jivetalk is okay, but it keeps crashing. It exits randomly and whatnot--not sure why.

I like slick, because it saves chat history but none of the others I have tried do this...

OZ does, sort of (it usually saves OLD history, and loses new stuff,)

OctroTalk saves history in your gmail account. I like this better than Slick because with Slick, I have to have my device with me to check history. By using Octro, where ever I have access to my gmail account, I can search history....

so, it sends you a daily email, or what?

or are you talking about using Gtalk or whatever the google IM service is called?

Does it do AIM/MSN/ICQ?

To use OctroTalk, you have to have a gmail account (which means you have a gtalk account...). You install OctroTalk on your device, then sign in with your google username / password. Then, you can configure legacy accounts (yahoo / aol / icq / msn). It uses something called transports to connect to those services. Whenever you chat with your buddy (on gtalk / yahoo / aol / msn / icq), it is saved in your gtalk chat history.

Your gtalk chat history is available when you are logged into gmail. It appears as a special "folder", like "sent mail". When you click on it, you see all your history listed and can click to view the transcripts.
