    I don't know if this is the problem for sure but it might be something to think about.

    I read somewhere that the new browser on the T600 was proxy-less (unlike the old browser) and it might be that without it ICQ cannot get the information from the data bases it needs to operate. Verichat uses its on proxy so maybe that is why it is working. Just a thought !!!

    OK well I got my friend with a Nokia 3650 to try that Agilemobile program.... and it really IS as cool as it looks! He loves it. Hrm, guess I can just keep wishing for something similar for the Treo 600....

    Out of the two existing programs, I'm leaning towards Chatter.

    Dear ICQ User,
    Thank you for taking the time to write us.


    ICQ for Palm was designed and developed to work on wireless devices that use
    the Palm OS. However, since new wireless devices are constantly being
    released, each with their own unique technology, ICQ cannot test ICQ for
    Palm on each such wireless device. As a result, unfortunately, ICQ cannot
    provide support for every unique situation faced by our users when using ICQ
    for Palm on various new wireless devices.


    Nonetheless, please be assured that ICQ will take into consideration our
    users' feedback and comments when developing upgraded versions of ICQ for
    Palm. We recommend that from time to time you check the ICQ Web site:
    http://www.icq.com for any new upgrades.


    Thank you,
    The ICQ Support team.

    So, it doesn't look good for ICQ on the Palm, at least from Mirabilis. I would still urge anyone who wants ICQ working on their Treos to fill out this form and send mirabilis their feedback.

    I just sent ICQ support a message. Hopefully they'll make a fix!

    Hey everyone. Just me again...

    I just installed ICQ 2.1 on my Treo 600 so I can test it and the weird thing is that when I am connected to my ICQ Id via my home PC and I try to connect from my Treo 600, I get a msg on the Treo 600 that says "... another user with that name is already logged on and you cannot logon twice..." - or something like that. But, when I am not connected via my home PC and I try to connect from my Treo 600 I get the msg "... connection error ...".

    While ICQ stands by the fact that they cannot support "every" Palm OS device, it seems that it may just be an "IP" issue from their end and not necessarily a "Palm App" issue.

    Right,

    But one key difference between Chatter/Verichat, and ICQ is, ICQ is free.

    You get what you pay for in this case.

    You can get free ICQ, but it won't be working in the background. And it won't be integrated with other services. And when you have a problem, you'll get a canned reply...

    You've got a $400+ phone and are likely paying $50/month for service. Chatter and Verichat are a VERY small price to pay if IM services are important to you (let's see $400 + $600/yr... Chatter, for example, would be 2% of the cost phone for the year; Verichat, a little more).
