Idiot? Perhaps.....

What to you do to create a "new IM" ? (not from the buddies list)

Can't figure this one out.


Also, when I use mobilechat and I hit "new im" it doesn't do anything. do I need to set my permissions to something other than 755?

BOTH programs work perfect as far as receiving im's, but neither at this moment seem to allow me to create a new IM.

With Apollo, just click 'add' at the bottom and use your username and p/w to log on to whatever chat app you use.

You have to add an already made IM account , like MSN , AIM , etc. You can't make a new account from with-in Apollo.

Once , you get signed in you just tap a buddies name to start a new IM.

I always get "Could not connect to authentication server: Could not resolve host name"

Any ideas?

Yeah I've gotten that before and I think I just gave up. It would be nice to know how to fox it though.

i think the OP's question, is how do you IM someone, who is not on your buddy list. Just like in AIM you can click "New IM" and then enter anyone's screen name, then send them a message.

and if i am right about your question, apollo does not support this feature

Just put this file in the (etc) folder and replace thats it. restart your phone and it should work but if it still gives you errors when logging in while in apollo turn off and turn on again and it should say stuff like (handshaking, connecting etc) repeat this until it works cause it does work.

thank you for the info... I have uploaded the file you put here... and worked for some time indeed... but it doesn't always work and says after all handshaking stuff can "Unable to Connect: Unable to authanticate" or just turns back to springboard...

do you have any other idea for fixing this?!
