Yahoo Messenger - others not showing up in list

Hello, i am hoping you can help. I downloaded yahoo messenger to my blackberry bold and it seems to be working fine. However, I have a contact in my list that always shows offline when in fact she is actually online. I can log into my yahoo messenger on my computer and see/chat with her fine but when i log into my blackberry she looks to be off line. She has a @live.com ID. I can see other people online if they are using yahoo.


Any and all help would be much appreciated.

Re: Yahoo Messenger - others not showing up in list

hello Christina,

since this happens for a single contact of yours, I think it's something she has configured on her side : to be seen online using the "legit" Yahoo Messenger application for PC from Yahoo, but offline if you use another Yahoo Messenger application. Can you check with her about that issue ?
