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?

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.

When i opeen a window to write to anyone , i can not see what they wrote to me

How do you know they've written anything? The best test is to open a window with someone who has written you recently and press F3, that should open recent conversations. If you can't see any text, then you'll know there is a problem. There could be any number of reasons for the problem, but the best solution is to download the most recent version of Yahoo Instant Messenger. You won't lose any of your settings or archived messages if you saved them, and your buddy list will remain intact. Just make sure you install it in the same location. Just go to for the most recent version, which is 10. I hope this solves your problem.

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.

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.
