Works great on skype as long as the phone does not go into sleep mode. It doesn't work when iPhone goes into sleep mode. Anyway to make it work when the phone goes into sleep mode?

you can just turn off the sleep mode by going into settings, then to general and then go to auto lock to set it into NEVER, so now you get messages at any giving time, hope it was a help, take care

Palringo worked for me! This is one of the first jailbreak apps I have installed(Backgrounder) and its exactly what I was looking for! So simple, yet sooo useful!

backgrounder doesn't work on aim. when the phone goes on sleep mode or when it's idle (when I'm not using it), it goes to a black screen. I'll be checking on my sidekick to see if the screenname I used on the iphone signed off. And sure enough it signed off when the iphone went on sleep mode. Then I signed back on iphone and went to surf the internet. I imed my iphone screenname and my iphone didn't beep or anything. I imed it 3 more times and waited until the iphone went to sleep. Touched the screen and checked AIM. No messages were waiting for me! This sucks. I wanted the iphone but since the AIM doesn't work good even with backgrounder, I probably wont go ahead and purchase a data plan for it.

How does this affect the battery life of the phone?

Backgournder is also great for: 1) Tuner - listening to online radio while playing a game / browsing the web. 2) Fring - you can be contacted via skype. 3) Contacts - yes, contacts. If your contacts freezes for about 2 seconds when you load it (and it probably does - check it if you didn't notice it by now...) then just use backgrounder on it to get immediate access to your contacts. NO MORE DELAY FOR ME :) !!!!!!!!!
