| If you paid for Jimm by sending an SMS to a short number, then you were deceived!
If after launching Jimm a large amount of money was withdrawn from your account, then it means that you too were deceived!
Recently, on many sites (including this one) there appeared an advertisement for a modified Jimm, which, after launch, sends an SMS to a short number and removes a large amount of money from the phone bill.
Remember that Jimm is a completely free program and you do not have to pay anything to download or use it . Be carefull!

Jimm supports regular text messaging . The exchange of multi-colored or formatted text is not provided.
When a message from Jimm reaches the addressee, the picture of the message in the chat is ticked: .
The Jimm client provides for the storage of message history in a special cellular storage called RMS. On some cellular (for example, Motorola) this storage has a rather small amount, and therefore it is not recommended to keep history on such cellular. Program settings are stored in the same storage, and if it overflows, the settings will no longer be saved.
You can delete the history of one or all contacts at once. Deletion of individual messages from the history is not provided. It is possible to save the history as a file (only if the cellular supports access to files from Java applications).
Standard statuses and x-statuses are marked in the selection list in bold type, and non-standard statuses are marked in usual:
Jimm provides direct file transfer according to the 8th version of the file sharing protocol (i.e., the phone establishes a new connection directly with the computer of your interlocutor) only on computers that have a real IP address on the Internet. In order to be able to transfer files to any clients and any computers, it is recommended to use file transfer via a web server .
PS: In the future we plan to implement support for the 9th version of the file sharing protocol. This means that Jimm will be able not only to send files to clients supporting this protocol directly, but also through the proxy server of ICQ Inc., as well as receive incoming files and save them in the phone’s file system (the phone must support the JSR standard 75)
This transmission method has the following advantages:
- The file can be transferred even to those clients that do not support receiving files via ICQ.
- You can upload a file to the server once and send links to it to several contacts at once.
- Ignore list - a list of those who will not see your status, and you will not receive messages from them
- List of the blind : contacts are added to this list that will not see that you are online. However, all messages from these contacts will be delivered.
- The list of seers - this list shows those contacts who will see your status, even if you have entered the network invisible
When registering, just enter the password for the new account and the code from the image. The received UIN and password will be automatically added to the list of accounts. The ability to register a new ICQ account will be available from the context menu, only if you are not busy with all three accounts.
How does the anti-spam filter work?
When someone not from your list sends you a message for the first time, the anti-spam filter sends a question to which it needs to be answered. If the answer to the question was correct, the filter allows this contact to communicate with you, if not - you will not even know what they were trying to bother you.
Jimm has the ability to display a list of phantom contacts (to do this, you must enable the "Show deleted contacts" setting) and even delete contacts from this list. Phantom contacts in the list are placed in a separate group, as well as marked with the letter [f]
In the future, it is planned to upload your avatar to the server so that all ICQ users can see it.
The server list is set in the network settings. Servers are entered in one line separated by commas:
login.icq.com, login.oscar.aol.com, ibucp-vip-d.blue.aol.com
When connected, Jimm goes through the servers in the list, starting from the very first. If you managed to connect through some server, it will immediately be added to the top of the list in order to start connecting from this server the next time.

- Put Jimm on the Nokia 6230i. Everything works, but there are no sounds and the vibro does not work.
When I start, my cell reboots. I put a version with animated emoticons.It is possible that the cellular memory is low. We must try to put the version with the usual smiles.
When loading, Jimm writes: "No memory to load emotions images!". After that, emoticons don't work.There is not enough memory on the cell to load animated emoticons. It is necessary to put the version with the usual smiles.
Put Jimm and can not go into some settings. And when connected, it gives an error that the port is incorrectly configuredThis happened due to the fact that Jimm incorrectly perceived the old settings. You must first remove Jimm, and then put it again.
Some of the contacts on my list have an icon (f). These contacts are always offline. Where did they come from?These are the so-called phantom contacts — those contacts that were once on the list or for which authorization was requested. They are still stored on the ICQ server and can be deleted (again, for sure).
To prevent these contacts from being displayed in the list, you must disable the display of deleted contacts in the settings.
Why are the emoticons in Jimm so small? Why developers can not post a version with large animated koloboks?The fact is that ICQ Ltd. has the exclusive right to use large koloboks in instant messaging clients. Jimm's developers do not have the right to insert these emoticons into their client.
When connecting, Jimm gives the error "The packet of the disconnected channel is not processed (# 135.1)"You must enable the "Secure login" setting in the network settings, or install the Jimm version no earlier than 0.5.1
My cell when connecting gives an error 121 (or 118). I have never been able to connectThis means that the GPRS-Internet does not work on the cellular. In this case, do the following:
- Check if the GPRS-Internet service is turned on at the cellular operator. If not, then you need to activate it.
- Configure GPRS-Internet on the cellular.
- If you are sure that GPRS-Internet is configured correctly, and Jimm did not work, try enabling the settings of "Permanent connection" and "Asynchronous transfer"
GPRS works for me (since I can climb WAP sites via GPRS) and Jimm does not want to connect and gives errors all the timeFor the work of the WAP-browser GPRS-WAP is used. And to work Jimm'a need GPRS-Internet. How to configure it is described in the previous section FAQ'a.
Why do I see numbers in the Jimm’s contact list?This is all because you make contacts in Miranda. Miranda does not fill in the Nickname field in the contact list, so only UINs are displayed. This problem can be solved in one of two ways:
- Go to the site http://go.icq.com/ and rename those contacts that are displayed in the form of numbers.
- Select to view information for each contact. After that, the name of the contact is renamed automatically.
When the program is running or when loading my cell, it restarts or shuts downSuch things happen because of errors in the firmware of the cellular. Jimm's developers can't fix this problem. It remains to hope that in the next version of the cellular firmware this problem will be eliminated.
I go to the settings, change some options, save the changes, but the settings are not saved. What to do?Most likely Jimm's data warehouse is full. It is necessary to clear the data warehouse (how to do this is described here)
Sometimes there are messages that can not be read, because they consist of incomprehensible symbolsIn this case, you must enable the “Win1251 Encoding” item in the interface settings.
Jimm all the time when connecting writes that the wrong password. I entered the password many times, but nothing helps.This can occur for several reasons:
- You have entered a password longer than 8 characters. Specify only the first 8 characters of the password.
- You have "hijacked" asi number. This can be verified by booting from another client. In this case, you need to use the service of restoring an ICQ account on the ICQ site: https://www.icq.com/password/
Jimm spends a lot of trafficMost likely in the settings in the "Connection Type" is "Http". It is necessary to switch to the "Socket". "Http" is necessary to choose only if the cellular does not support the connection type "Socket".
When using Jimm, my phone’s battery consumption is faster. This is normal?Yes, because while running Jimm, your phone uses CPU, memory and network capabilities so much, so increased battery consumption is inevitable.
Why after several attempts to connect an error occurs Attempts have been exhausted # 114?If you too often connect to the ICQ-server, it can impose a ban on connecting from this ICQ number for 10-20 minutes. Repeat connection attempts after some time.
Jimm'a freezes when loaded immediately after turning on. What to do?Most likely, the Jimm data store has overflowed or deteriorated, cleaning it in any way will help.
Why does an error constantly occur during the connection An I / O error # 120 has occurred?This error occurs when Jimm cannot access the data network. Make sure the availability of GPRS services (check the balance of the personal account, signal strength). Check the settings for accessing java-applications to the Internet. Make sure that Jimm has not been denied access to the Internet. Perhaps this error may disappear itself after rebooting (turning off and then turning on) the phone.
- On Siemens x65-75 phones, this error may occur if you do not break the active WAP connection before using Jimm. In standby mode, such a connection is represented by the GPRS> icon. To break the WAP-connection, use the standard WAP-browser.
- If the connection process indicator constantly stops at 10% and after a while the error # 120 occurs, then try to enable the additional connection in the Jimm network settings. This is true for some operators who change the internal IP address of subscribers with each new packet connection.
