What Is EBuddy and How Do I Install It?

eBuddy is a way for you to easily message everyone who is important in your life from your phone using a variety of different programs, including Yahoo, AOL Instant Messenger, Google Talk and MSN. Basically what eBuddy does is consolidates all of your messaging systems in one place where you will be able to access all of them all the time. All of your contacts will be contained in one friends list. This friends list will be easier to use as you will not have to open each individual program every time you want to message a particular contact. This really is a fantastic and innovative way for you to keep track of all of your contacts. It is very easy to get started with eBuddy. If you simply take a few minutes to follow the necessary steps you will be able to get started with this system as soon as possible. There is no limit to how many networks you can access at the same time. eBuddy works on mobile phones, but it also ahs application in systems like PDAs, Sony PSP or Nintendo DS.

Downloading eBuddy on your phone

Step one

In order to download eBuddy on your mobile you will need to have a phone that has access to the internet. If you have a phone like this then it will be a quick and easy process to get started using eBuddy. You will need to use your phone’s internet connection and browser to navigate to the eBuddy homepage where you will be able to download this application.

Step two

Now you will need to click on the ‘Download’ link. Once you have done this you will be prompted to verify that the system has correctly identified your mobile phone. Different versions of the application work better on different phones, so it is very important to make sure that this step is completed adequately. If the system has not automatically chosen the correct phone, you will have to find the correct model yourself. To do this select the “Select a different phone” option and look for the right phone.

Step three

Different phones may have different instructions, which is one of the reasons why it is so important that you make sure that the correct phone is selected right from the beginning. Once you have reached this stage you should follow the given instructions that are specifically meant for your mobile phone. If you have selected the incorrect model then you will not be able to complete the download process. The instructions will be very easy no matter what phone you are using. Just say ‘Yes’ to everything. The only decision you will have to make is about where the application should be saved. You can either save it to the phone’s memory or to an external memory card.

Step four

If you have problems during installation, you should be able to solve most of them yourself. For example if you get a ‘Memory Full’ error you can go through your phone and delete everything that you don’t really need in order to make room for eBuddy. Once you have done this, try downloading the application again. There is also online help available for any problems that you may experience.

Step five

Once the installation has finished you will then be able to get started. Launch the application and allow it to connect to the internet. Sign in and then continue.

Then you will have to choose an eBuddy ID of your own choice that must be between five and sixteen characters. Choose a password and type it in.

Think about this carefully. Specify your age, email (Your email address is needed so that the verification email can be sent to you and so that you will be able to access your account if you ever forget your password.), address and gender.
