    Probably a very dumb question but these convos are not goign to be classed as text messages are they? I only say as in the two conversations i had in fb chat last night only the first two comments i made in chat had the google 'talk' image to the far left above the comment. After that it just seems to be a standard text convo. Hope it dosent coutn seeign as i onyl get 500 texts a month!

    I was using the other messaging plugins before, but they were flaky and didn't work as well as this seems to. Sucks having to choose between the two, though.

    I can hardly wait till someone figures out a way to get both of them working. Bad thing is, how many WebOS users also use Google Apps and want to use Facebook chat? Guess we'll find out.

    Just install the xmbb/jabber version of the messaging plugins. You will leave the gmail intact, and have a separate protocol for facebook.

    I chose google talk
    or user name I entered username@chat.facebook.com
    (username was facebook username)
    for password entered my facebok password
    it did not work
    what did I do wrong? Did I not install the patch correctly? Did I miss some step?

    Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
    If you haven't received help on this yet, I found going into facebook and logining on then going to my account and actually looking up my username was actaully my firstname.lastname

    Is there any way of keeping this from adding facebook to my contacts? I don't want all those extra contacts on my phone! I just want to use the chat! When I go to Contact preferences Google doesn't show up for me to remove them!

    Yes. Open the messaging app & go to "Preferences & Accounts". Click on the account & a dropdown will appear. Click "Sign off" & it will sign off of that account only. See attachment.

    I installed the patch, and was able to get it setup properly. It has been "signing" in for about 20 minutes now. However even though the signing in is still spinning I can receive FBchat messages but I can't send them. Anybody else having that issue?

    This doesn't work for me. If I tap an account, I just get a Change Login Settings page. I'm not sure how to get the screen you attached.

    this is pretty cool. I was wondering though, if it was this easy to set up and we know it works. Why would palm not set this up themselves? Just thinking it's a pretty good selling point.

    Hmm. I guess that drop down menu might be part of greg_roll's messaging plugins. I assumed it was just a new feature that came with webOS 1.4

    Is there any way to make it so that this patch doesn't completely murder your battery life?

    Yeah, that's how I had it setup, but they seemed flaky and I could never get it working 100% the way I wanted. A lot of my friends showed up as their user numbers instead of their names (i.e. u123456789). I tried to fix it by linking accounts, but that didn't help. I also tried manually adding their Facebook IM information under Jabber in the appropriate contacts (e.g. I'd add u123456789@chat.facebook.com to John Doe's contact information under Jabber), but no matter what I did, some people showed up with their names, and most showed up with the user number.

    This seemed to work better for me, with the drawback of not being able to use Google Apps' Google Talk.

    Is there a way to get everyone's names to show up using the messaging plugins from Greg (I think that's his name)? I was only successful with a handful of people, and I never figured out why or how.

    It's no different with or without these patches. IM counts toward data usage, text messages count toward, uh, text message usage.

    So unless you're accidentally sending texts, it's not counted against your text messages. If your dropdown says 'Google', it's data. If it says 'Text', it's text. You can flip between the two at will, which is the beauty of WebOS and Synergy. Just make sure yours isn't on 'text'.

    Yea me too. I really want to try this, but I don't want all those contacts showing up. I only talk to about 5% of my "facebook friends" anyway.
