    It's better to regret things you've done than things you haven't.

    You're not doing a very good job of promoting the benefit of ICQ, but I'll list them anyway:

    - I (as in ME) can join conferences. Cos I'm all lonely at the moment.
    - Users who are online go to the top of the list, so you don't miss anyone.
    - The new version of ICQ, you can send SMS (txt msgs) for FREE!
    - You get a message history
    - Easier and better file transfer
    - Ability to send URLs as a seperate msg.
    - Ability to send the same message to multiple ppl (after only sending once, if u get my drift).
    - ICQ can automatically check ur email every x minutes when ur online.
    - The Profiles system on ICQ is so much better - more details, easier to access.
    - You don't have to sign up for yet ANOTHER goddamn email account!

    Well, I think that is a fairly comprehensive list of ICQs benefits. That is, of course, other than what Yahoo can do - which as far as I can see is send IMs, hold conferences and generally be useless.

    Plus, ICQ tends to log in more or less instantly and 99% of the time, unlike Yahoo which is generally crap.

    Maybe it's time to get ICQ ppl.

    I didn't lose my mind, it was mine to give away.

    well actually my file transfer doesnt work on icq, and it does on yahoo... but ive used icq for about 3 years and yahoo not that much! its coz of our weird network thingies though, i connect through my dad's modem in another computer with a local network, and it doesnt like that! but aside from teh general screwy uppyness lately, it works alright <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/smile.gif"&gt;

    and yuo have can icq chats with multiple people too, like yahoo. you can set it so you can see people's messages as they're writing them, or as normal IM style, in chats.

    Yeah, how forget that. There is also an IRC option so that it looks like normal IRC chat - possibly less confusing when you have 6 ppl in a chat room, but not as pretty to look at!

    I think we should just stick to one cause I'm sure people are getting fed up of downloading one program and getting use'd to it. Then we switch to another. I think we should stick to ICQ! Case closed

    Which is why we ALL agreed to YAHOO those few months ago, it was a quick download easy to instal and use, and rather attractive looking. FWIWIMHO ICQ is ugly, unser unfriendly (it crashed my machine on 1st use) and damn it a pisser of a download. Even <mutters under breathe> MSN Messenger is better.

    Well in my opinion, yahoo is always crashing, disconnecting me, making me see two of what people say in conferences, making people invisible in conferences, crashes my computer, and basically just annoys me, msn is good cos ive never had any problems with that, and icq is a bit complicated for me.

    I think they're all crap. I think we should go back to carrier pigeons.

    can anyone tell me how do send sms messages, what version do u need?
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    i got version icq2000b.. what you then need to do is goto options and put icq into 'advanced mode'.. then right click on a name and choose sms.. then set up their mobile number on the 'i' button.. the person you are texting has to be a icq member as well tho.. you can send and recieve sms msgs.. hope that helps..

    go to www.icq.com and im sure theres a place to download and register there!

    If you don't know where you're going, you'll probably end up somewhere else.
