    If you don't know how to get on irc I am not sure it will be possible, but if you do know, please try an efnet server, for instance irc.colosolutions.com

    thx very much.

    I've tried about 5 different IRC clients and so far, the only one that works is the jmirc-m version posted above. It has some issues, but it's the only option right now.

    This is great! I was able to connect on nevernet and join a channel...but how do you post? I hit the menu button, select "message," type my post, menu button, "ok," and that doesn't seem to work. I'd be sooo happy if I can get this to work!!!

    penguin, if you install the jmirc-m version above the code has been modified to enter text to irc by selecting the enter/return key on your bb. I find it a lot better than vanilla jmirc where I had to click the trackball.

    Aknarra what issues are you having with jmirc-m?

    I now have it setup and connected to efnet via a bnc (znc) on a unix shell. This means when I move around town or loose my signal in the office (lift or basement etc) I do not drop from irc as the bnc keeps the connection. I then reconnect invisablly back to the bnc when I get my signal back. znc even replays you a text buffer of any conversation held in the channel while you were disconnected !

    JPK, does your mobile provider have an APN and have you added it to you tcp/ip menu? I had another issue with my provider where I had to delete a wap service book to get on irc. This happened all of a sudden after having irc working for a few months. They must have made a change somewhere. I was pretty stumped until someone suggested the fix on here.

    Thanks everyone else for your replies. Seems as though there should be no issue with the 9700 and irc.

    Excellent! Thanks scary. I swear I had tried that before I posted...but now it's working fine. It's wild to be chatting in one of my favorite haunts from 10 years ago on my phone .

    Thats great news penguin glad it works. It's a great little client. I had to use vanilla jmirc last night and it was horrible after using jmirc-m for a while.

    While it works, it's slow at times. Not really fond of the way messages are sent, would rather see a text field at the bottom of channel window. I can't seem to switch apps while it's running, there is no option in the menu and my hot-key doesn't work.

    I don't use it often so it's not a deal breaker, I just wanted to be able to get my IRC fix now and then.

    Slow in general. Sometimes after hitting "enter" to send text, the little clock icon will show up.

    I'm using a 9700, which is why I'm posting in the 9700 forum.

    Yeh, I realise that, I thought I saw you had something about a non blackberry device under your profile name.

    It's not slow on my 8900 and I thought the 9700 had a faster proccy and more memory.

    That's strange - the End key doesn't jump you out of the application? It works fine on mine. And I completely agree about wanting a text field at the bottom of the window. That would be a lot better. I was chatting earlier this morning & would miss some messages as i'm typing out a response.

    Ask o2 what their settings are for their APN or ask on the o2 thread first I guess. You usally don't need a user or password, just the APN entered.

    Yeah, the "End" key works, but I have the right convienece key set to switch apps, and I know it's a 2 step key, but it still doesn't work. And my left key is set to open Gtalk, it does, but only after popping up the message window and it takes forever.
