    despite loads of publicity saying its up n' running, it is not...all we get is a message "Coming Soon" when we scroll down to "AIM" on our Sprint PCS Vision phone...another screwup by Sprint

    i've never seen sprint say that AOL is up n running on Vision. in fact we all got a statement on the retail side that november is the ETA for AOL portal on Vision and to share that with customers. AOL on the 2g WW has been available for a while and still is.

    It's only on the old 2G Web right now, it's not on Vision yet.

    yeah...currently no web portals...such as yahoo, aol, or msn work on vision. november sounds reasonable...but id say for everything running smoothly...prob first quarter, next year.

    actually u can use yahoo on a vision phone. goto URL on your phone wap.oa.yahoo.com you can access all yahoo stuff the only thing is you cant save your login name and password have to retype it each time

    Tried the wap.oa.yahoo.com with my Sanyo 4900 and I still get the insuficient memory error. No yahoo access for a while I guess.

    Cool it works for AIM and Yahoo IM. Buggy on the MSN messenger side though. But for a beta it succeeds

    yes it is a bit slow on some phones to load up and it has some bugs but it is a big step in the right direction i suppose. hopefully an integrated aim & yahoo messenger on vision will be up soon.

    I have sprintpcs service and a vision phone with a vision plan and I access my aol right from my phone without any problems. simply go to url : http://mobile.aol.com from your phones web browser and you can access aol features the same as you could from previous non-vison phones.

    I hope this info helped anyone needing to access aol from a vision phone.

    HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!

    I installed the AirIM beta on my LG 5350 and it crashes the phone every time it tries to log in. [​IMG] I emailed the developer and he asked for a bunch of phone-specific questions, which I answered. I expect there will be a new version of the app forthcoming.

    Hey Pam :) I have the same phone as you, an actual AOL account (not AIM login), and whenever I go to "Mail & Addresses", I get in this loop where it tells me that I must sign in. I sign in, then return back to "Mail & addresses", and again, it tells me to sign in. Do you have this issue? Also... I think most concerns are with the "IM" feature not being available like it was before, and I don't even see anything on that menu that relates to sending "Instant Messages"

    It takes me about 10-15 minutes to get signed on to any service using AIRIM, which kills my battery. Not sure why it takes so long. It just goes through the connecting/logging-in process forever.

    It works for me using an LG 5350 (I tested w/AIM) signon is fairly quick. I just wish I could logon and have myself on til I signed off, the program running in the background or something.. That way I could stay online 24/7 (well, not quite). As it is, soon as I close the phone I'm off. Well, I guess it would also be nice to be able to take incoming calls while logged on (seems to be transferring data all the time while it's connected?)

    Hi, i have a sanyo 4900, and i have the same "looping" problem as you with the sign in process of mobile.aol.com, does anyone have a solution to this? Also, does anyone know when AIM services will be available for these 3G phones?

    I figured out that I only have the looping problem with my Sanyo 4900 if I go to mobile.aol.com.

    www.aim.com/wireless/sprint/ - Yaye!!! It finally says on there "Sprint Vision - Aim Service on Sprint Vision (Sprint 3G handsets) coming soon!
