    I use Yahoo Messenger a lot and am wondering how I can change my picture on it. On my BB i was able to change it pretty easy if i remember correctly, and i have even looked on the computer, but to no avail. Any suggestions?

    Thanks!

    I use Nimbuzz and it's pretty easy to do so with that. It also supports multiple IM protocols.

    However, I cannot answer your question. I absolutely hate the Yahoo! made clients.

    As of right now Yahoo messenger is junk on the Droid, but the only way you can change the pic that shows on the phone is too change it online...

    I disagree with the junk comment, but it's not fully-featured yet. Change it on your PC and it'll change on your Droid. Eventually.

    On another note, I use eBuddy for most of my messenger-ing needs on the Droid. It doesn't let you change your picture, but it's got AIM, MSN, Facebook, Yahoo, and I forget what (if anything) else. Some people even chat eBuddy to eBuddy; it's used in some websites for chatting as well.

    I use ebuddy as well and it works great... but if you download the official yahoo app for Droid, you will find that it is garbage... I've tested it for a month, and you will get about 60% of the intended messages... and it seems I'm not the only one.

    I've been running it since day 1 and not had a single issue with its performance, just with the lack of a persistent presence in the taskbar or notification dropdown. Of course, I'm on the OD (and use eBuddy for day-to-day IMing since I don't need the special features for the most part), so there may be issues with MotoBlur/SenseUI on the X and Inc. Then again, the FroYo update for the Inc is supposed to be rolling out now/very soon so some of the issues might vanish. :)

    eBuddy is very good. If the only issue the OP is having with Yahoo! Messenger is the picture thing, then the only option currently available that I'm aware of is to do it via the web/PC.

    Yahoo is a Google competitor, so I wouldn't expect anything Yahoo related to be a priority for the google operating system.

    ok, most everyone that i IM is still on a bb, and we used bbm or yahoo messenger to chat instead of texting for the most part. What can we all download to use IM together back and forth?? also, is there a group IM that is available like there was on BBM? Not stuck on Yahoo, but seemed like everyone had access to it. No facebook or twitter please

    Thanks

    eBuddy does not appear to be available on Blackberry, but if everyone uses Yahoo than any Android app that allows you to message your Yahoo contacts would work -- Messenger from Yahoo, eBuddy, Fring, etc.

    I've used the Yahoo app since day one and it works great. I receive all messages and I only receive notification on my status bar when a new message arrives. eBuddy keeps the icon in the status bar all the time, which I don't care for.

    My Droid is my first smartphone, so I don't have an answer for you on that since I never got the BB bug.

    Heck, I used a friend's Storm 2 earlier this year a couple of months before I got my Droid and hated it. I picked the Droid up without even futzing with it in the store and loved it from the get go.

    When you say group chat thing, do you mean like a conference on Yahoo! Messenger on a PC?

    i guess so, i never did conference on yahoo, but basically a few to a lot of people all chatting together in one location. on BBM, you can set up a group for example 5 people in the group and chat. if someone not on there at the moment they still get the info the other people discussed.

    Yeah, that's exactly what I meant. I don't know of any apps that currently do it, but that doesn't mean there aren't any. :)

    that looks like it would work perfectly, but the BB people are too scared to try it out since it is still in development...:icon_ cry::icon_ cry::icon_ cry:

    Aww, but, but... new toy! :)

    What, exactly, are they afraid of? I'm running a ROM on my phone that's "in development" and it's more stable than stock was when I was running 2.1! It's also in the final stages of development, so the bugs would be very small and/or hard to get to. Ah well, I guess I'm used to working with buggy software -- my main computer is running Windows. ;)

    I tried a Storm back in April and I couldn't hack it. I was rocking my Droid in fifteen minutes. I repair computers for a living. Do the math. :)
