    I use to have an Iphone and finally upgraded ;) to my Droid. But thing that i havent figured out how to work is Yahoo messenger to SMS to my droid.

    On Iphone, if a friend on yahoo messenger SMS'ed me a text from within it i got it just fine as a txt msg and can reply back, but on the droid, when u send the sms messege, my droid doesnt get anything.
    I tested with AIM and Live messenger and seemed to work but yahoo doesnt.
    If anyone has a yahoo account and droid can u please test to see if it works for u?

    Any ideas?

    Regular phone to phone sms works fine too.

    I just purchased the Droid 2 Global and am having the same problem. I can receive the yahoo sms text but my reply is not received. I contacted my carrier who suggested I contact Motorola. Motorola was not aware of this problem. I was put on hold for 10 minutes while their technician researched it and discovered that Droid does not support conversion of sms texts with yahoo. She said they would put this on their list to see if they can fix the problem and come out with an update for the Droid phones. Don't know if or even when that will be done.

    The only suggestion they had was to download the yahoo messenger app and reply from there.

    I hope this was helpful to everyone who has the same problem. It doesn't solve it, but maybe Mortorola will be able to fix this problem.
