    Hey Broads desire,

    You need to enter a phone number instead of a name... so your own phone number.
    It connects trought phone numbers aswell, so if you wanna add someone you need his phone number... no nickname or e-mail orso... Hope it works for ya... did for me...

    if you get a failed authorisation leave it a day and try again, worked for me on 2.2 desire and no email sent. really great app but only for text chat on android it seems, doesn't seem to rinse the battery too hard either which is a bonus

    I tried to install the APK on my X10, and it said it could not be installed.

    Anyone know if it requires 2.1+? I emailed them yesterday but have yet to get any response regarding my registration with the beta.

    Is the chat across platforms? I used to have a ton of contacts on there when I had my 3gs.

    Well I installed it tonight and it works well but it's disappointing to see it will be a paid service despite the cost ($1.99/yr)

    Other platforms have had it free for some time and it just won't work as well as a paid app. I'd rather just pay an upfront cost.

    There are too many alternatives for one of them to try and push through as a paid service therefore diluting the userbase futher.
