IM Locks up when IMing to a mobile device

I recently downloaded the most recent version of Yahoo Messenger, 9.0. When IMing with a friend on a mobile device I sometimes exceed the maximum of 151 characters. Yahoo Messenger posts the limit error and immediately locks up. Pressing "OK" does not clear the error message, nothing will clear the error message. Only solution is to open the task manager, close Messenger and restart, which is very aggravating. Did not have this problem with v. 8.0. Can you help?

Thanks,
Chuck

Well my friend it seems to me that yahoo messenger 9.0 is having some issues specially that it is beta and needs some work until it is properly done.

so my advice dont exceed the limit of the 151 characters or just downgrade to yahoo 8.0 until the 9.0 is free of bugs or glitches like these.

cheers

I cannot view my friend, he has a web cam I do not, but I can't figure out how to do it. Do I need to download the new yaho, I am trying to view him through windows live, h has a yahoo addy also


There are many inconsistencies between Yahoo! IM and Windows Live. Basically, you can connect to members of each, but the status may not update correctly and other features like web page sharing may not work. My recommendation is if most of your friends are on Yahoo! IM, then switch to Yahoo! IM. Lastest is version 9. Version 10 is in beta.

There is no chat on yahoo messenger 9


When you have the Yahoo! Messenger 9 window open (with your friends and whatnot) go to Messenger, and then Yahoo! Chat. A sidebar will come up next to Yahoo! Chat with the options Join a room, create a room, and favorite rooms. From there you can choose which you want to do.

I installed the most recent version of Yahoo! Messenger 9 just now and that's how it's set up for me. :)

Hope that helped. Have a great evening and please don't forget to rate this solution.

Yahoo 9 wont let me display a picture or change nickname


Go to folder
C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger\Profiles\[your Yahoo ID]\My Icons

It's a list of display images saved by YM. Remember the filename of your desired image.

Open your registry (click Start, Run.., type REGEDIT).

Trace the path
HKEY/CURRENT_USER/Software/Yahoo/pager/profiles/[your Yahoo ID]/FriendIcons

The value of Path should reflect the filename of the current display image in your YM. Change it to reflect the filename of your desired image.

Close the registry.

Restart YM.

Yahoo messenger 'call computer' not working


Hey.. Just got solution for this, all you need to do is go to Preferences (Ctrl+Shift+P) and then go to Connection and down below you would find Internet Connection, set it to HIGH-SPEED (T1-LAN) and click on Apply and then Ok. All you have to do now is to EXIT (dont just close it but Exit out of the Messenger) and then launch the Messenger again. You should have the Call setup options under Calling and Devices in Preferences. (Preferences are under the Messenger menu) -- Dev
