I keep all my instant messengers signed in on my desktop and something on my phone keeps logging in and booting me off of them. I have everything that i can think of turned off like Meebo yet it keeps happening. I checked the battery status to make sure it didnt list anything as running that i didnt notice. Dunno why it keeps happening starting to get kind of annoying.
New to Android, coming from Pre, hated the messaging app, Im a heavy texter and AIM guy, more instant messaging. What are you guys going to load the Evo with?best interface + less battery hog + stays connected?
I just upgraded to the Evo from the Hero. I was lucky and the store did not record my equipment upgrade last time, so I was eligible at the launch date. I used to use the IM app on the Hero, but it looks like it did not make it to the Evo. Am I missing a stock HTC app and it is now renamed or part of another app? If not, what is my best choice - something like ebuddy? I mainly use Y messenger.
I think I am just missing something here. I thought there was to supposed to be a Google instant messenger type thing (like tied into your google account). Feel kind of stupid asking but couldnt search and find it. How do I do it?
Why can't we just get a good IM app like beejive for android? I have an iPod Touch and every IM app I've seen in the apple app store blows anything we got. Meebo, ebuddu, hi aim, yahoo and all that other crap sucks compared to the iPhone IMs. Is there a way to contact google or someone incharge of the market place to add more IM apps?
I am aware of the notification bar on the top that you can bring down to see new e-mails, SMS texts, etc. But how does notification work with IM (instant-messaging)? I would like to know how Hero notifies you of new IM's both when you are on the home screen/different app other than IM, and in the locked screen (where you have to drag down to unlock).
I'm looking for a good messengering app that can run Face book chat and run in the background. I've tried Meebo and eBuddy but they both seem to disconnect if you leave your phone alone for so long. I want something like BBM that can run in the background and give me a notification when someone is trying to chat with me.
A couple of quick questions.. I can't change my custom away message (status), even though it says to tap your screen name at the top of the buddy list. Can you read people's away messages with this phone, if so how? When i get a new IM, i get sent a website browser in the notification along with the the person's screen name who IMed me, but when i click the link, it never loads up and shows an error, anyway to fix this or anything?
I have logged in with my live messenger account with the Instant Messaging app for the whole week since I got the phone. Wow I just checked my bill online and I got charged for over 500 sms sent and received. Even I logged in using my live account still consider as sms??? Unbelievable ATT
I was wondering if anyone was running any Gameloft games on their X? I downloaded Let's Golf and it works on the X fine, except there is no sound.I reinstalled twice and nothing. The sound worked once the first time I installed it in the intro, and then it stopped. Next time I reinstalled it, nothing, no sound. Media volume is up all the way and everything. Anyone have a problem like this?Or anyone have success with other Gameloft games on their X? Besides the sound issue, the game is very fun, and very smooth on the X.
I have to access to the data folder of other applications from my application to read configuration's file and so on but it seems it's possible only to read data from the sdcard and my application's data folder. Can you suggest me how to solve this problem?
So what I've noticed is that when people call me and I click answer, it takes a second or two for the call to actually connect, and during that time, people can't hear me, so I end up saying "Hello....Hello?" all the time. Is there any way to make the calls answer instantaneously, as opposed to that 2 second lapse in connection?
Ok so I use my new Evo phone constantly to chat on yahoo and AIM, usually through either the ebuddy, yahoo, or now the new trillian app for android. And until a few days ago the only complaint I had was that it logged off everytime I got a phone call, but it always logged back on, so no worries. I just figured it was a data vs. phone service issue.
I started noticing that everytime I make a phone call or get a text message on my phone, my AIM and yahoo based chat services (happens in all of the above apps) disconnect, and they don't auto login again. I have to logout of the app and then log back in to reconnect. But wait, it gets better.
I was annoyed with it happening on my phone, so I just logged off the chat app on my phone and logged in on my computer instead. Then my phone rang. A few seconds after the call, my chat service disconnected... on the computer! I thought wow, strange coincidence.
So I tested it. I logged back in and made a phone call, hung up, same exact thing happened, chat services that I was logged into on my computer were disconnected within a few seconds of end the call on my phone. So I reset my phone, turned it back on, made sure no IM client related apps were running, and made a phone call. Same thing happened. And then I got a regular text message from a friend on my phone, and noticed the same thing happened, the yahoo and AIM connection on my computer disconnected.
How on earth can my phone be causing my internet based chat service on my computer to disconnect when no apps related to that feature are running on the phone (and no the phone was not connected in any way to the computer)? I am completely stumped!
I hope somebody here has a clue how to resolve this. I tested it over and over again with different programs on the phone (downloaded trillian after it started happening with the ebuddy and yahoo apps to see if it did it also, it did) and I used both yahoo by itself on my computer and other all-in-one type messenger programs with the same result. Somehow the SMS portion of the phone which is used for the IM clients doesn't disconnect anymore and is related to the phone calls. Its like the accounts have somehow been paired. This issue only began this weekend, prior to that everything was fine.
I've got Gmail running. I get almost instant notifications of new email - give or take 1 minute Is this how its supposed to be? (Not complaining!) I've only done some basic testing - but it seems really fast pickup! I thought Blackberry had a patent or something that stopped other mobile companies giving *instant* email notifications?
I can't figure out how to make this work. It doesn't show up as an option in notifications, although I can do it it with pretty much everything else. I get tired of having to turn on my phone like it is a damn iphone, to see if I have an instant message waiting. I get dozens a day, and really don't like that I can't simply glance at the phone and see if one is waiting. Is there a setting for this, or an app to make it work? The Instant Messaging app for Yahoo, etc. seems like it could use an update. I don't get the "so and so is typing a message" like I used to on my BB when the other party was typing. I keep interrupting them now if we have a conversation going, and then miss their messages when I'm not staring at my phone.
i dont know if its me but i dont seem to be getting instant notifications via text when someone replies to my status or when i post on someones wall etc. I used to get them instantly on my Storm. Is there a step Im missing here?
I was a huge advocate for ebuddy, but the app doesn't support Froyo, and I'm using a 2.2 rom. So, I'm hoping one of you can recommend an instant messaging app to try out. I've tried a few and can't find one I like.
ebuddy: No froyo support Meebo: Blows. Constant disconnects. IM+: No longer supported
What I need: 1. AIM, Facebook, GChat, MSN 2. Remain signed in 24/7 3. Froyo support
