I just got cingular yesterday, and thus far I'm really impressed. At my house, I used to get 1 bar of reception with verizon, if I was lucky, with cingular I get 4/5 bars, if not full.
Anyway, for the first month, they're giving me unlimited data, so I'm playing around with that. I just tried out mobile AIM, and I've noticed that not all of my online buddies show up in the buddy list. How do I fix this?
1) If you get an invitation from a buddy and you accept it from your phone they won't appear on your list until you log on to AIM from you computer and activate him as a friend. (This has happened to me twice on MSN IM) It's a quick fix.
2) They might be on "mobile" mode. If my friends on MSN IM are mobile they don't show as online when I log on on my phone. They only appear as half/way online, "mobile" on my computer.
3) They might have a older version of AIM that doesn't support mobile IM.
