I usually don't reply to old posts, but as this is stickied I assume that the no-necromancy rule does not apply...
I recently went lifetime and was interested in this feature. After some minor difficulties I was able to connect with Pidgin on my PC, but neither of the Android clients I tried would connect.
Anybody out there know of an Android client that works currently? Both the ones I tried were mentioned in the thread earlier as working but then as we near the end of the thread I see many people with newer problems. Just curious if anybody could recommend a client that is known to currently work, as to make my trouble shooting go a bit easier.
