    It's shown in my list of accounts as signed on, or "Available", yet none of my Google contacts are shown in my Buddy List. It's been like this for a while now.

    Is this a problem on my end or is something up with Google chat?

    Could be Beejive. They pretty much seem to suck at keeping connections alive. My AIM connection gets dropped every other day on their end.

    Should check their crappy support forum, be warned, the Beejive fanatics over there might not take kindly to you saying something isn't working right with their beloved IM client.

    I've checked the support forums. There's no mention of anything like this.

    The connection is fine. It's always shown as online but contacts never show up on the list.

    do others see you online?

    if so, then it's the application on your phone. Or the connection between their app and their server.

    It works kinda like this. You enter details for an account. It's then "connected" on their servers. Their server knows whether your phone is connected to their server. If it is, it passes the info to your phone as things change (x logged in, y logged out, z sent you a message). If your phone isn't connected it either emails (if you set it up) new messages, or sends them via push to your phone. When your phone connects again to their server it has a queue waiting and pushes all that information to the Beejive application.

    Basically. If others see you online, but you aren't seeing them, it's likely a bug on their end. Either on their server software, or on the application.
