Question about AOL Instant Messenger

Open Question

AIM logs me in, but doesnt recognize my name, and doesnt recognize my contacts.

Ok this is a weird 2 part thing going on. When I sign into AIM msgr with Facebook, AIM signs me in, but cannot find my name. Just keeps saying "fetching name," even though it does recognize my FB contacts and I can chat & video with them. Conversely, when I sing into AIM Not using FB, AIM does sign me in with my name, but does NOT recognize any of the contacts I have entered. They remain shadowed and I cannot connect to anyone. Any suggestions?

SOURCE: I don't want AIM or AIM pro to come on automatically.

ok When you turn on your computer and it autimaticaly logs you in you need to log yourself out and then on the screen where you put your user name and password, there will be a little box thats says, save my password and there will be another one that says sign me in automaticaly. Uncheck the one that says sign you in autimaticaly. If you want to use your vidioe camera you dont need aim pro unless you have a mac then the vidioe set up process is a little for complicated

How do log into my email account?


You type in your User name OR email address plus Password. If you forget password theres a box to tick to get it or a new one. If you enter both of thos and you still do not get into your email you can sign in with your Facebook account. Failing that you need to go to the Help button at top left of the page (very small!) and get help.

Login problem


Try updating Java, adobe flashplayer and framework. All of these add-ons are needed for Yahoo Messenger to open and run.

http://java.com/en/

http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/?promoi…

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/detai…
OR TRY IT
Did you check to see if your windows firewall or your antivirus is not blocking you,then you need to unblock and allow .if that is not the case,log on to yahoo and go to my yahoo! and see if you can log on with your ID,if not,go to create an account,and use your old ID,if it tells you it is available then your account has been wiped out or deleted for some reason,if it is not available,then it exists,contact yahoo www.yahoo.com/support/help,and give all the details and they will walk you thru it.Or you just might want to create an account. good luck.
this happened with me when i updated to msgr 10 from 8,will not recognize my ID,or password,so just go to forgot my password under the sign in window,and follow step by step(as if you forgot)and yahoo will email you the new password to your email and you can use it to sign in and will work.good luck again.

HI MY NAME IS KRYSTAL. AND I HAVE A PROBLEM LOGGING ON TO MY EMAIL ADDRESS RSYAL2@AIM.COM. I BECAUSE I DON'T REMEMBER MY PASSWORD CAN U HELP ME LOG ON MY EMAIL ADDRESS


Go back to your email at aim.com and click on "forgot password" under the "Enter Password" space.
You will be asked a few questions, including your "alternate email address" when you signed up for aim.
Remeber ... was it a Yahoo or Hotmail account? or another aim address?
Go to AIIM now and try again.

LG Dare Mobile IM Login Error


My recommendation is to call Verizon Wireless and have them troubleshoot. I am having the same problem, and when I called last night to see if I could get it fixed, they tried several things -- no success. However, they told me nobody else was reporting this issue!

So... REPORT IT TO VERIZON! Maybe they will investigate into it further and fix whatever the issue might be.

When I load the AIM function on my matrix, it freezes at the ATT and AIM version: 4.6.22 It signs me in but i can't look at anything. it just stays on the screen. and when I close it, the online symbol...


sign on to your aim from your home computer and reply with the number "1" to the system message that will appear telling you you are signed on from 2 locations...this should sign you off from your phone

same problem occurred on mine for the first time tonight and this worked for me

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
