Why don't you try IM Chat ? Apollo started giving me the same problem and I switched to IM Chat...so far so good.

BTW I just went round like loads of forums.
And basically, if anybody has winSCP or any other SSH reading programmes
Then you can go to: Applications/Apollo.app/hosts
and replace the hosts file with this document
http://code.google.com/p/apolloim/is...462&name=hosts
then it works
=D
nice find.. to bad i cant try it due to my open ssh not staying on..
whoever tries this let me know if it works

why do people use SSH when they can use iPhonebrowser or ibrickr?

maybe I don't know the benefits or something but I've always found a USB connection faster than wifi.

Fix for Apollo 1.1.3

just ssh into your iPhone using winscp or transmit (mac) and look for etc folder and then the file called host open it with a editor and add this at the bottom of the text in a new line
