    Oops... I meant to say that I'm not having that problem anymore. However, I did take my Sanyo SCP4900 into the Sprint store and they upgraded my phone software. Maybe that fixed the problem??? I now have...

    1.056SP for software, and 20020910Rel-v062b for browser.

    You can find that specific info on the Sanyo 4900 by choosing "Phone Info" and then "version" from your menu.

    Simple Question: Does the Sanyo 4900 support a STANDARD WAP INTERFACE, and if so, can service be DOWNGRADED to "regular Wireless Web"?....

    My friend has a 4900 and so far the web service is useless..... I'm on Verizon and my 3G phone still has a standard WAP browser.

    This "Get AIM" link doesnt happen to be the link at the very bottom that directs to http://aim.com .... is it? Because if it is, thats where you get AIM for your desktop.

    The Sanyo does go to regular wap sites that you type in. Most wap sites that I have come across work on the phone.

    has anyone tried AirIM yet?

    It seems to install fine for me, but never does connect. Has anyone gotten this to work? This is on sanyo 4900.

    I recently picked up the Toshiba 2032 for the Sprint PCS Vision wireless web service. The Pocket PC comes loaded with 2002, which AOL specifies that neither their AOL or AIM software for Pocket PC's works with 2002.

    What, then, is an AOL user to do? I have an AOL account (Bring Your Own Access Plan) and a separate AIM account. Any suggestions? Again, very new to this but fairly computer savy as well. Any and all suggestions are appreciated.

    Regards,
    Smooth...

    I tried this link and all I got was the google search page. Where should this link have taken me? I know that AIM is scheduled to come out on Vision phones its just a matter of when. If there are any Sprint PCS employees in this forum with knowledge of the rollout for AIM on Vision phones could you please give us a heads up. I really would like to use AIM on my phone. Also does anyone know how to access MSN Messenger on a Sprint PCS Vision phone? Now, I don't have trouble with any of the other links, but I do with Hotmail, Messenger and Games/Entertainment links on the Mobile.MSN.com site. I get page read error or HTTP error messages and on the Games link I get "Oops you can not play this game on the phone you are using" I have a brand new Sanyo 8100. I need help anyone out there that can help?

    Thanks.

    Go to this link on your computer to set AIM up. I've heard the "real" AIM will be out soon, but I've been hearing that since last fall. This AIM program works very well. MSN Messenger and Hotmail only work on the Sanyo 4900 and 5300 right now. My understanding that MSN will roll out to all the phones the second week in June. - sheureka

    If you have AOL as an isp and you are a beta tester they have a beta version of AIM to try out. Just go to keyword beta click on sprint pcs. I'm sorry I don't have the link they gave for the phone but I haven't downloaded it yet. This means its on it way soon !!
