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.

It keeps saying"enter characters to


If you want to send an IM, type your message into the "enter" box. If AIM suggests you send an SMS (text message) instead of an IM, check to see if the buddy you're trying to message is using their cell phone. A cell phone icon will appear next to their name in your buddy list if this is the case.

Do you use you phone to access AIM? I know that my phone keeps me signed in all the time even if I am offline for weeks.

No one is showing up on my buddy list at all.It says that every one is signed off.


Look at your buddy list and make sure your preferences are set to let you know when buddies are online. Both you and other users have to choose whether others can "see" you online. You can set Aim to "away" and offline even if you are not.

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.

How do I reset my AIM logon, I am not sure what my logon screen name or password is. Is there a tech support phone number to call?


When you forget both password and login screename there isnt much you can do. Most times you just hav to start over with a new account but sometimes if you go to aim.com and click find buddies or search profiles you can fill out your name gender age and all of that stuff and it will pull up a list of screenames under the things you put down that match. most times you can find your screename there and sign in with it and click forgot password and follow the steps after that. however if it doesnt get sent to your email then i reccomend updating your email version and also aim version. also if you type in your email address and it doesnt math the original one that you put down wen you first made your account it wont send it so be sure you used the right one! hope i helped
