Question for Google Talk Users
Quick question for GoogleTalk users.
Is GTalk supposed to ring while you have a conversation open?
I use it all the time and it seems like whenever I have a conversation open with somebody, the phone will not ring if they send me a message. When i close out of GTalk completely, it will ring. It seems that the phone actually does ring sometimes when the conversation is opened, but that is only after about 5 messages, and again, it is only sometimes.
I cannot imagine that GTalk is made so that you must close out of it and have it run in the background in order to get an audible notification of a message. Or is that the case? Just something thats been bugging me for a while.

I noticed this and have played around with it for awhile. You are right, it will not notify you of new neasagesif the conversation is open. This can be goodies bad. I used to find it a little annoying that I would get beeps/rings every time a new message came though while I was actually looking at the screen in a conversation. However, I can also find it annoying that I either have to hit the home button to get a ring with new messages or look at the screen to see a new message. Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be a happy medium otherhan allowing the use to chafed the setting on this feature.

I have the same problem and even made a post about it in another forum here with the same result.
Not getting notifications of new messages is what caused me to stop using Gtalk and just go back to texting. I'm really surprised the app functions like this. Pretty weak."...and this is what not to do if a bird sh*ts on you"

I think I read a few things on the Google support pages but IIRC they claimed it was a non-issue as only a few folks 'complained' about it. That was a couple of months back, so I don't know if it has become a larger issue. I'll have to check that out...

Mine seems to work fine, but I always close the app back to home when I message someone. Maybe that makes it behave differently? I take it this only happens with multiple conversations going on and while you are chatting with someone?The Storm has cleared to an Incredible day! I ate an IceCream Sandwhich.
