    Hi, I've got a Samung Galaxy Spica, on the lastest android OS.
    I can connect to 3G, Edge, ect... and go on facebook, browser, all works perfectly.
    However, I CANNOT find any IM apps that will work on my phone whilst I am using mobile internet (3G or Edge) however they all work on wi-fi.
    I am aware that it's almost certain that one of the apps I've tried should work on mobile internet, and that a setting in my phone must be to fault.
    But I have no idea where to correct this problem, any help?

    PLEASE! Thanks! :D

    eBuddy and imo.im both work on mobile data.

    Until recently, I was using eBuddy. But imo.im can IM with Skype in addition to the other IM's.

    Just downloaded eBuddy, and it works fine on wi-fi, but nothing over edge...
    Any chance it's got something to do with my connection speed? Or a setting in my phone?

    Something's not right with your phone. eBuddy and imo.im both work on mobile data.

    Do you have a Task Killer installed? That seems to be the root of all push/connectivity evils. If you do, uninstall it and reboot and try again.

    If no TK, then something else on your phone is restricting access.

    I don't think so, what is a task killer exactly?
    And if it's something with my phone, any idea what? Probably some setting...
