    My google chat will randomly disconnect and I have to go into preferences to sign in. This happens at least a few times a day. And it only just started a few days ago when I removed the profile trying to get someone else added to my buddies list. Anyone have suggestions or know of this?

    one other issue is when I sign in, then immediately go back into preferences it asks for my password, like it's not logged in. Even though once I click "sign in" it is connected. I'm lost, but it's becoming a frustrating issue as I use gtalk a lot.

    Thanks ahead of time!

    I sometimes have to go back into the "Buddies" section of the messaging app to make sure I'm still logged in cause it will disconnect at random times. I never have had to re-enter a password though. Sometimes it will stay connected all night and other times I have to go and change the status to available four times a day. Weird.

    Is there no solution? It seems to cut out randomly, but every time I'm on the phone it logs me out, and usually when I hit roaming (inside some buildings). I can understand the roaming. But it's randomly disconnecting and doing the same on phone calls, and it's becoming an issue for me as I use it a lot.

    It wasn't doing this a couple months ago, it seems like it started about 2 weeks ago or so.

    Well unless you are on wifi then it will cut off while you are on the phone, you cant use and internet/data connection simultaneously with a voice/phone connection. Thats w/ any cell phone not just the pre.

    I have had this same issue. Although in my experience it has happened from day 1. I have never been able to maintain a reliable connection with google talk. It works very randomly. It even seems as if the only time it works is when I least need it to. And if I am able to start a conversation using Google Talk, to be sure it will log me out soon.

    The only differences between your situation and mine is: When I attempt to re-sign in , it successfully logs back in only maybe 1 out of every 10-20 tries. Usually it just says "Signing In..." and will stay that way for a minute or so and then return to saying "offline". At this point I usually just have to leave it and see if it is logged in later in the day.

    And I have never had to re-enter my password. At least not during any sort of normal usage. In the past I tried deleting the account from my Pre and reinstall the account on Pre, of course then I had to re-enter my password. Other than that, never.

    I would love to see a fix for this or at least a better understanding of what is going on with it.

    I'm having this issue since I erase the Pre and load WebOS 1.3.1, never had a problem before
