I am using Verizon as my carrier. My phone is a Blackberry Curve 8330. I have downloaded and installed jmIRC 0.95 and it seems to be installed properly and working. However, when I try to connect, regardless of the server I choose, it always aborts and times out. Someone told me that Verizon blocks all IRC ports... I called Verizon several times and they said there is nothing to unblock. Someone else said I had to adjust my TCP settings, but there is no option for TCP in the Curve. Can anyone please help me get jmIRC working? Or if it is not compatible with my Curve 8330, is there an IRC program that is? Thanks in advance...

    I have a blackberry curve on Sprint and jmIrc 0.95 is working perfectly for me, so it doesn't appear to be a problem with the phone and is probably Verizon.

    The only other thing I would double check is your application settings for jmirc on the blackberry, make sure it is allowed internet access and all that good stuff, and of course double check your IRC server/channel/account settings...

    Sorry, to clarify, I have the Curve 8330, same as you.
