    Is you user-name the same as your gmail account that you used to register your phone ? If not that might be fixed if you use the same user name as your registration gmail account ... I dont use gTalk ... so not absolutely sure if it makes a difference ...

    I use the same username I use for all the other G1 Google apps and I see my contacts online...so no issue.

    Off topic - if you long press on a friend there is an option to "pin friend" what does that mean?

    nope, no problems. MY guess is that Pin keeps them near the top of the list.

    Poor grammar choice. How about something a bit more conventional? (I know you guys didn't name it.)

    I tried "Pin Friend" and then "Unpin Friend" and didn't see any noticeable changes.

    Ah, then it does make sense as a choice. They are "pinned" to the top of the list, regardless of whether they are signed in or not, while everyone else's spot is determined by algorithms.
