    Long ago, before I ever got a T616, and before ATT activated AIM for my SIM
    card, I signed up for mobile AIM stuff. It never worked for some reason,
    but now that ATT updated what my SIM card can do... well, it works, but I
    can't make it STOP. I've sent numerous "off" text messages to 4647 (the
    "sign off AIM" address), but I still get messages, and I'm still visible to
    my friends as being online (albeit on a mobile). Nothing on AIM's site
    helps (it says if I'm inactive for 26 hours, I'll be signed off - but then,
    it says if I sign off, I'll be signed off, too, and that's obviously false!)

    I've seen some reports of other people having similar problems with other
    carriers and other phones, so I'm guessing this is AOL being stupid...

    It happens with T-Mobile too. People usually suggest signing on from your
    computer to kill it, but some people say this doesn't work for them.

    I don't use AIM, but I would try going into the connectivity menu, selecting
    wap, and deleting the cache and the cookies.
