Question about RIM BlackBerry Pearl Smartphone

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.

How do I set up a buddy list?


Add buddies If you're already having a conversation with someone using AIM, Jabber, Google Talk, or Yahoo!, select the conversation, then choose Buddies > Add Buddy. Otherwise, do the following:
  1. In the buddy list window, click Add (+), then choose Add Buddy.
  2. If you're using a single buddy list, choose the account you want to use to chat with the buddy from the "Add to" pop-up menu.
  3. If the person you want to add has a compatible messaging account listed in Contacts, click the disclosure triangle next to the "Last name" field, choose his or her name from the list, then click Add. Otherwise, complete the remaining steps.
  4. Enter your buddy's buddy name in the "Account name" field, and your buddy's first and last name in the "First name" and "Last name" fields.
  5. Choose a group for this buddy from the "Add to group" pop-up menu. If you don't want to add the buddy to a specific group, choose Buddies.
  6. Click Add.

How to import your AIM buddys into Gmail


To set it up, just head to the <a href="http://www.aim.com/import-to-gmail/">Import to Gmail</a> page and log in to AIM. Once you've logged in, it will prompt you to enter your Gmail credentials as well. When it's done, it will tell you your contacts are imported-that's it! If you head to Gmail, you should see all your AIM contacts pop up in the Chat sidebar. Note that it only imports the 38 contacts you chat with the most, so if you have more than that, it looks like you'll have to add them manually. The Upsides: You Only Need One Login; You Get AIM on Android The Main idea behind the switch is that you won't have to deal with two separate logins within Gmail from now on. The other really cool part about this is that you can log into both protocols from one IM client. Since nearly every IM client under the sun has both GTalk and AIM, this isn't a big deal for desktop users, but it does mean that Android users can now IM their AIM buddies right from Google's official GTalk app, which is great, since it's probably the best IM client on Android.<br /> The Downsides: It's Confusing and Kind of Buggy Unfortunately, the whole implementation still seems confusing at best, and buggy at worst. Your AIM buddies will no longer see your AIM screen name when you log in; instead it will create a new contact for them using your Gmail address. However, I had the problem where some of my contacts weren't even showing up in the sidebar-some were only showing their Google Talk contacts, some were showing only AIM, and some were showing up twice, like they used to (though some showed up after a small wait, so perhaps it just takes awhile for everything to register). It's not combining them, either (which would be awesome)-it's just excluding some contacts from my buddy list entirely. In addition, the 48 contact limit for the importer is kind of a drag if you have a lot of AIM buddies.<br /> If you use a desktop IM client, of course, you'll be unaffected by all this, and can continue using GTalk and AIM separately. In fact, we'd recommend doing so. Unless you're really itching to get AIM in the Gmail web interface or on Android's Talk app, using a desktop client is still the easiest way to get access to both, and we'd recommend against importing your AIM contacts into Gmail-at least for now. Have you tried the new AIM integration in Gmail? How does it work for you? Share your thoughts with us in the comments.<br />

I reach aol through internet exploer...my buddy list is missing...no icon shows


The Quick Contacts button on the left will lead you to "Open Full Contacts". If none are listed, you need to export them from AIM or wherever they currently reside, as a CSV, TXT or LDIF file, then Import using the Tools button within AOL Mail.

My normal contacts list has disappeared, all i can get is my sim contacts which has meant losing a lot of data (contacts) how do i get my normal list up


If a contact does not appear on your contact list, verify the following items:
  1. Ensure that the group list containing the missing contact is fully expanded (not collapsed). To expand the group list, on the Contact List screen, select the group and then click Expand.
  2. Ensure that the contact has not removed you from their contact list. If the contact has deleted you, that individual will not be displayed in your contact list.

Remove all special characters from your buddy list (any where on it) to resolve this issue. The only thing on your buddy list should be letters and spaces, no ,./-_ or things of that sort. This is what verizon told me and as soon as i fixed this i was able to sign online.

Hello my school has blocked all aim resorces. Do you know any way i can get onto aim?


You can usually use AIM on your mobile phone for free. Most mobile phones come with AIM already installed. If you have GMail you can access your AIM buddy list on there and chat just like you were signed in to AIM. There is also a web access version of AIM on their website.
