not receiving IMs from AIM

Before when i was with AT&T people on AIM could send a IM to +1702******* and I would receive the IM as a text on my phone and could reply....  I just moved over to verizon and now when someone tries to send me a IM via AIM you get:

 

 

Auto-response from Steve: Your IM has been sent to my mobile device. When I receive it, I will be able to reply. Thanks for your IM! Want your IMs forwarded to your phone? Click here

 

Auto-response from Steven Lawrence: Your message could not be delivered. Please try again later.

HTH,

 

 

actually thats wrong you have to have a IM Client so send AIM-to-AIM messages  but a user on AIM can send a IM to your +1yourmobilenumber and will come through on your cell phone as a normal text message I have sent ton when with AT&T to my wife via AIM when to lazy to pull out my cell phone or if on charger..

 

Now wasn't working the other day on verizon but sent several this morning successfully so guessing that last week number just wasn't fully ported over from AT&T.....   

 

So all working good now..

Now wasn't working the other day on verizon but sent several this morning successfully so guessing that last week number just wasn't fully ported over from AT&T.....   And that's prbably exactly what happened - glad it's working now!!

 

So all working good now..
