AIM Software on 3390, E105 & V300


Mar 10, 2004, 11:11 AM
I've been using AIM on either my Motorola V300, Samsung E105 or Nokia 3390. I know every action u do such as Signing on, signing off & IM a buddy counts as 1 text message. Currently I have 10 buddies in my "Mobile Device", 4 of them are online. It seems that if I Sign on or off, I'm wasting a text message for every person that is on my "Mobile Device" buddy list. I've talked to 5 or 6 Customer Care Reps. & most of them can't really explain why is that. A few ppl I know & myself included noticed that because we are going to the roof with Text Messages charges, not to mention we all have Text Messages packages. Evil or Very Mad Since I can't really get a straight answer from either Customer Care Reps & Text Messages Reps; I wanna know if any of u know ...

The reason is because it sends a "signed off" message to each of them. The best way to avoid that is to use AIM through T-Zones. Now the 3390 doesn't have that option but the other two do.

Yeah, I also have T-Zones & I use that to check my AOL mail. But if I get on AIM using T-Zones . . . is such a pain in the a$$. Specially using the Motorola V300. I wish T-Mobile would bring back the old "BuddyTime" add-on. Unlimited Text Messages & Unlimited T-Mobile to T-Mobile calls. Either that or just make a unlimited text add-on.

the reason why it is so difficult to use the AIM in a v300 is due to 2 factors>
1- Software failure> every single new motorola product has major software failures.
2- programming failures from T-Mob> T-mobile has always programmed their phones and networks unproperly. If u had the disgrace to operate an old A009, u would know what i mean.
