    Hmm, I have the BSD installed and everything updated to 1.02 and it's doing the same thing, so I would assume that the program just has a bug that needs patched, I'm using mobile chat and really the only difference is you don't have that black, Darth Vader-like theme, damn. I mean after all, I only use aim for the themes, I mean why else would you use it?

    Although I like using ApolloIM, I do kinda wish it had the iPhone interface. I stopped using MobileChat. BeeJive is my favorite web messenger.

    The biggest problem I have with the native IM programs is that they don't actually reconnect after a phone call. That or maybe the program crashes while it's running in the background. Is there some sort of log that you can view to see what happens to the program?

    Was using ApolloIM but too buggy for me. BeeJive is just right!
    A blonde walks into a computer store and asks for curtains. The sales rep asks "What do you need curtains for?". The blonde replies "I've got windows"

    You dont, Just point your safari browser to iphone.beejive.com and sign on. You can also go to meebo.com.

    The bottom line is that Apollo sucks. This by far is the worst IM program to install. It constantly crashes and gives log on errors. Ill stick with beejive and meebo.

    Is Apollo really safe? I mean you are login in with your UN and PW that i assume goes to Apollo's server. Who is behind Apollo? Please tell me its not some drugged out teenagers..........
