General Information
Novosoft Mobile Instant Messenger (MIM) is an application stored in the
SIM card of your mobile phone. MIM allows to access the popular ICQ
Internet messaging service using only your handset.
Using the Mobile Instant Messenger you can:
Exchange messages with Internet ICQ users
Set and modify your Internet presence status
Maintain your own contact lists
Exchange your contacts with other ICQ users
View the status of ICQ users
Request and view information about ICQ users
Before you start
For the Mobile Instant Messenger to function properly, you need to enter
the correct number of the SMS center of your GSM provider. Please check
that your phone’s SMS center number is set to the SCS-900 SMS center:
+79029869990
MIM Initialization
When you start your first MIM session only the MyMIM submenu of the
Novosoft | MIM menu is visible. Using this submenu you will set up your
MIM Account – enter your ICQ# (also known as ICQ UIN - Universal Internet
Number) and your ICQ password. After registration, other subsections in
MIM menu will be available.
Caution! You can add only an already existing ICQ#. If you want to use a
new ICQ#, you should first set up a new account using the ICQ application on your computer.
Enter the MyMIM submenu and select Account to create your registration record. You will be prompted to enter your ICQ#. Enter the number,
press «OK» and enter your password.
Caution! MIM allows only passwords from 1 to 15 characters long. MIM
correctly recognizes only the passwords using Latin symbols and numbers. If your ICQ password contains non-alphanumeric symbols, such as
$#[email protected] etc., please change it using the ICQ application on your computer,
otherwise MIM will be unable to connect to ICQ network.
After successful registration (entering the ICQ# and password) you should
receive the following notification:
Account ##### was successfully added
Please do not use the applet until you receive this confirmation (or an
error message)!
Now you can start using the application.

MIM menu you receive them after short delay when you exit the application (see also Known problems section of this document).

before trying a new registration!
Known Problems in Current Version of MIM
1. Current MIM version cannot correctly send or receive non-alphanumeric characters.
2. Incoming messages exceeding 80 characters are split in two or more
parts which are delivered separately.
3. The order of arrival of parts of longer messages (within 540 characters) may be incorrect.
4. After you change your status, you can experience an unusually big
delay before the confirmation message arrives. If this happens, do not
set the desired status once more, rather try changing it to something
else. For instance, if you do not receive confirmation of changing your
status to Online - try changing your status to Busy or Offline. After receiving a confirmation message, set the desired status.
