One of the features of the Nokia E71 is it’s built-in Instant Messaging application. Little that everyone know, Nokia’s IM application can be used with Yahoo! Messenger. Most of the time, we are notfied with a “Notify your service provider” -like messages when we’re not sure with the settings to be entered.
To configure your E71′s Nokia Instant Messenger to work with Yahoo! Messenger, just follow these simple instructions:
1. Open the IM application. (Home Key > Communication > IM)
2. For fresh installations, you will be asked for a Server Name, Access Point in use, Web Address and your own username and password.
The Server Name is used as a quick reference to what the server settings is all about. Since we’re setting up YIM, you may place “Yahoo! Messenger” as Server Name.
The access point in use will determine which internt data connection to use when connecting to a server.
The web address will contain the url/ip of the server which will host the IM service. In our case, it’s Yahoo!
The username/password are the same with your preferred login for desktop Yahoo! Messenger.
3. Enter the follwing information from the fields in #2.
Server Name : Yahoo! Messenger
Web Address : imps.msg.yahoo.com
Username: <your username>
Password: <your password>
Mobile IM is sometimes annoying since it introduces a great amount of lag. It usually take a minute before the expected message arrives.
