    When i log onto AIM from the storm, it never shows that i am on mobile unless people check my profile. How do i get it to show? My friend has t-mobile and when she logs on it shows the icon saying shes on her mobile phone.
    Thanks

    it depends on the app you're using...if you have the AIM app from RIM, then i don't think it says you're mobile....but if you have mobileIM, then i believe it states that you're mobile...

    That is correct... the app is the AIM program right on your phone (just like the one on your PC), so when you are on it, technically you are not "mobile". You would have to be signed up for AIM texts through your AIM on the PC to have it show the "mobile" icon to people.

    When you sign into the app on your phone, you are actually signed in to AIM. Whereas if you don't use the app, and you sign up for AIM text messages, you are not signed in to AIM, and it shows your status as "mobile".

    you would need to sign up for the aim mobile sms chat feature (which sucks ***) or download an INFERIOR I.M. app....

    you would be taking 3 steps backwards, just to get the "mobile" icon?

    i'm curious as to your motivation...

    I have it set up where every time I'm offline on my pc it goes into mobile mode. So this way you're always on your pc or in mobile mode.

    Mine says I'm mobile even though I'm only logged into the rim app. I never signed up for mobileim.

    you are using the AIM app that came loaded on the device, and it says you're "mobile" on your friend's AIM apps when they log on and see you there?
