Question about RIM BlackBerry Pearl Smartphone

1 Answer

Not all buddies from all groups appearing in my AIM list

When I log onto AIM on my blackberry, it only displays buddies from one of my groups -- a group I have called Pandora.

It basically puts people into two categores "online" and "offline." ONLY people in the Pandora group show up as "online" or "offline".

People I have put in other groups "buddies" or "travel channel," for instance, don't show up anywhere on the list on the blackberry, though they appear instantly on my computer on Adium or iChat. I have tried to uninstall and reinstall AIM, to no avail.

The AIM client for RIM is limited to 30 contacts at this point, so it won't show everyone. They are in the process of updating their client so that it shows ALL buddies.

What you could do is use an instant messaging client called BeeJiveIM, which is a multi-protocol instant messaging client that allows you to connect to AIM, Google Talk, Windows Live, Yahoo!, MySpace and ICQ. There is a 30-day free trial at http://www.beejive.com.
