Can't Even Get It to Log On

Being as this was the only option for using Yahoo messenger on my phone I downloaded it despite the horrible horrible reviews. I installed it put in my name and password and can't even get it to go online for the first time. When I try to select available as my status the wheel goes round and round in the app crashes repeatedly. I googled help for the new Yahoo messenger in the suggestions were extremely generic so just make sure you have network conductivity, delete the app and reinstall and restart your phone. None of these helped it still crashes immediately upon attempting to go live onto the network. Every other one of the apps that I have on my phone works fine. This, without a doubt, the worst piece of junk I've ever tried to install. AVOID IT!!

Not working

Ok look there a freezing problem here I can't even sign in or even use the app here I like the old one better and it should still let me have all my old stuff to like contact that I had now where all they and when I got my new account it still won't let me in so why what's wrong with it please fix it or something here I like to be able to use it to and it keeps shutting off on me to.

This beehive messenger is about as bad as it gets

I have been a loyal yahoo user for years. H Abe always had good experience with the old messenger. But with this beehive messenger all of the negative reviews have proven to be accurate. It has been a very bad experience as I can even get the beehive messenger to allow me to sign in. I would hope that with all the negative comments that yahoo would get the problems fixed or realize what they had before worked and what they have now in this beehive messenger is not what a proud organization like yahoo needs to tarnish its reputation. This beehive messenger is wrought with problems and nobody is listening. It just doesn't work!
