    Is there any way to have instant messaging (not short mail) on my
    Sanyo 8100 work like Instant Messaging is supposed to work? That is, I
    want to be notified when I receive a message and be able to quickly
    read the message and respond. I prefer to use IM because that's what
    the rest of the world is using, not short mail from Sprint! Anyway,
    it's pretty lame if you have to actually keep going into IM on the
    phone to see if someone has send a message.

    Thanks.

    SprintPCS does not yet support SMS messaging, and its not obvious that the 8100
    will support it when it does.

    If you had a Palm phone (and the Treo 300 can be had for as little as $99 now)
    then you could use something like AOL's Instant Messaging.

    You should get a notification alert from Sprint on your phone if
    someone sends you a text message or instant message. But you will
    still have to log on to see what the message is. But, no, you
    shouldn't have to log on to see if a message is there -- a notification
    is sent if someone sends you one.

    The newer phones (such as the nokia 3588i) have real sms text messaging
    built in but it is not activated yet on the Sprint network.

    Love,
    Phillipe

    Nope, I don't get a notification when Yahoo Instant Messages come into
    my phone. I do get a notice when I get a Sprint PCS short mail, but
    not from a Yahoo IM.

    Check and see if there is a settings option anywhere with the yahoo im. If
    so, you may just need to turn on that part of it. With AIM, notifications
    are sent.

    Sorry about the double post, but www.3gupload.com has a free app called
    AirIM.jad that should run yahoo im and send notifications.
