I just discovered that there is a free mobile Yahoo Messenger in our mobile phone. Well I think I am always the last to hear the news regarding these things HAHAHA but I am happy with it. I just activated my GPRS and my friend said that in order to have my access to YM free, I must not allow the pictures and so I did. It's fun. My classmate is now addicted to it. I need not to go online always. I can send a message even at school [err break time only hehe] :) I live in the Philippines and my server is Globe. How about you? Have you tried it? Or is it available also in your country? :)

If you are a globe subscriber just follow this steps: 1. Activate your GPRS by sending GO to 2951. 2. Save the settings. 3. Type this: ph.m.yahoo.com/messenger on your address bar. 4. DO NOT ALLOW PHOTOS so that globe will not charge you. 5. Log-in using your full email address. Done. You can now use your FREE MOBILE YM :)[u][/u]

It might be my age but my partner and I only use our mobile phones for phone calls although I do know that our children (all adults) use theirs to send photos, text messages and who knows what else to each other and their friends. Our own personal mobile phone, as distinct from the one that my employers provide for me, is on a plan where we can call one designated number if it is with the same network. The calls are free providing they do not exceed 10 minutes each call and are made between 8.00 pm and 6.00 am but can only call the same number for a maximum of 60 minutes in a day. That means my partner can call me using her mobile phone 6 times in a day and it doesn‘t cost us any thing unless we exceed the 10 minutes with each call. It is a good plan for us to be on and we specifically chose that one because I am often away from home driving the truck but we can still stay in contact without is costing us a fortune and most of the time it actually costs nothing as we will disconnect and then she can call me back for another 9minutes 50 seconds. So most mornings she will call me around 6.00 am or earlier in the summer months is she knows that I will be leaving earlier to make a delivery. She also phones me every night which means that I know what is happening on our small organic farmlet, what she is doing etc and also she knows what my schedule is and whether she can expect me home that day or maybe the next. Good luck to those who can use the new technology but it is not all for these old bones. lol

I must say that technology gets better and better as time passes by and I do believe that in every generation, there is something not present in another. Whatever era or generation we may be, were still lucky for we belong to that generation even if the technology is not that great. At least, we love where we are now. Thanks oldboy46. I am super happy about you answering my discussions from one topic to another. I love you to bits for that. You made me smile a lot. :)

Yes there have been some wonderful advances in technology. In my opinion many of the advances actually serve a higher purpose in that they can be put to use in the medical field to help those who are sick to be more comfortable and lead better lives. In other instances technology has seen advances in things like growing crops and producing food in some of the poorer nations. At least to me those are very important things from the new technology that we are seeing, even if that was not what the original designer planned for the product's use. It is my pleasure to respond to your discussions. I am slowly going through my friends and finding those discussions which interest me and which I feel I can add something to.

Thanks for giving me best response for your discussion. It is good to see that you have a few more discussions that I can respond to as well. Keeps the brain ticking over and regardless of age that is something we all need to be able to do.

Yeah i have tried it but it's pretty much hard to connect sometimes. It's even hard to reload the pages of the chat window but still it's better than nothing and it's free so i shouldn't complain. It comes in handy too for those who are always away from their computer. You can even check you email too and download attachments. It's a great feature from Globe.

I've tried that and have been using it for months now. :) I was a SUN subscriber before but when I heard about the free YM, I switched back to globe. :D

HAHAHA now I see. The unlimited offers in SUN was defeated by Globe's free YM access! Nice strategy for Globe if ever that is one of the probably reasons for making it free hehe
