4.    I can't seem to find the UNLICHAT application after installing it, where should I look for it?



The UNLICHAT application may be saved in different folders or sections of your phone depending on its make and model.

For newer Nokia Series 60 handsets, the application can be found inside My Own or Applications folder.  Older Series 60 versions would saved it on the main menu.

For Nokia Series 40, check either the Main Menu or Applications Folder either under Games or Applications.
 
For Sony Ericsson handsets, try looking for it under Applications Folder or Entertainment and check content of Games or Applications. It will usually be arranged with the last saved application at the bottom of the list. Simply look for the UNLICHAT icon (smiling chat/message bubble) and click to launch the client.

5.    When signing in, UNLICHAT keeps on prompting me to choose an APN.  Which one should I choose?



For most handsets other than the Nokia Series 40 phones, you will be prompted to choose among available APNs.  You will typically see the following choices:
        myGlobe CONNECT
        myGlobe MMS
        myGlobe Internet (for Postpaid)
        myGlobe INET (for Prepaid)

Choose myGlobe CONNECT.  The application may prompt you twice: (1) to allow connection to use network and send or receive data (2) to allow application to start automatically when needed.

6.    Why does the application prompt me "to allow application or start automatically when needed" when I've already agreed to allow connection to use network and send/receive data?  Will I incur additional charges when connecting?



Selecting Yes to this prompt allows UNLICHAT to automatically turn itself ON whenever there’s a new message.  No additional charges will be incurred on top of your UNLICHAT service fee.

    8.    I don't see all my YM contacts in the list, why is that?

We currently limit the display of contact lists to 150 buddies to ensure that the service runs smoothly for all phones (some phone models have limited capacity to run the application).  All your buddies, whether listed or not, will still see you as online (or whatever status you have set) and can send you messages.  You will be able reply to those as well.

Back to Top



9.    How can I easily view my contacts without going through each one of them?

By default, UNLICHAT allow users to view groups and contacts, both online and offline.

9.1.    You may also search for your contacts by typing their names.  UNLICHAT will automatically narrow down your contacts.



9.2.    You may choose to collapse view of a particular group to easily navigate through the rest of your contacts.  Click on the group name to collapse (-) or expand (+). 



9.3.    You may also go to Settings and view only your Online Contacts.

10.    How do I send messages to my YM buddies?

10.1.    To reply to a buddy from an open conversation, type on the message box provided at the bottom of the screen and press the fire key (joystick or center key) to send the message.  You may also click on Menu and select Send Message.

*Note that message bubble on the user icon means that there is an ongoing conversation with that specific buddy, while an exclamation point within the message bubble denotes unread messages. These contacts are usually displayed on top of each group.

Back to Top

In the active conversation screen, click on Menu and select Insert Emoticon.  Choose an emoticon there.  You can also type them directly in the message bar if you are familiar with the symbols.

17.    How come I hear alerts from the application even if there are no new messages?

These are presence status alerts. You may start hearing this during loading of contacts and every time any of your contacts go online. You may change this by going to the Settings menu and disabling "Notify me when contacts come online".


Back to Top



18.    How do I change my status?

From the main screen, click on Menu and select User Options.  You can either be Online, Busy, or Appear Offline.



Back to Top



19.    What is the difference of "Sign Out" and "Exit" ?

"Sign Out" will disconnect you from Yahoo! Messenger and your buddies will see you as being offline.



"Exit" allows you to close the application (to save battery, or to open other applications for Nokia S40 phones) without logging out of YM.  Buddies continue to see you as “online” (or whatever status you may have selected) and can continue to send you messages.  When there is an incoming message, you will be prompted to allow connection and UNLICHAT will launch again to display the message.



When signing out, all active conversations will be closed. Exiting the application, on the other hand, allows you to view conversations once the application is reconnected.
