Receive not free!?!
Authored by: ezpkns on Jul 22, '08 01:55:24PM
No, this tip it theoretically allows free inbound SMS messages, provided you stay logged into AIM long enough to receive your reply.

Where it all falls apart is if you log out of AIM for >5 minutes, or your phone goes to sleep, that reply is lost forever. Down a dark hole in the internet. The only thing worse than not getting an important reply is when the other party is certain that you did.

So, use with caution.

Receive not free!?!
Authored by: jamito on Jul 28, '08 09:08:15AM

Yeah, I guess if you are waiting for a reply that takes a while to come back you'll have to keep the program "active" in order to receive it. I did make a point to say in the hint that it would be much better in the near future when Apple gets the push system working for the program, then AIM will stay logged in and you can receive the message regardless of having the program "active". At this point you could really fully replace SMS messages and use just AIM.
