eBuddy 1.5

I’ve never posted eBuddy 1.5 because it doesn’t install on my i776.  Plus it’s supposed to be a very minor update to fix a connection issue on some non-Boost phones. On the other hand eBuddy 1.4 works, although it keeps telling you there is an update available.

Boost apps reader Darren found a version of eBuddy 1.5 that does work on his i9. I tried it on my i776 and it  fails with a “Class Loading Error on “bz.class” just like the other one I tried.  I’m posting it anyway for the benefit of i9 users.  It may work on other models with likely candidate being the i856 because it is the latest models.

If you try this on a phone other than the i9, please post a comment saying if it works or not and I’ll update this post.  If you try it and it doesn’t work, you can always go back to eBuddy 1.4.

eBuddy supports Yahoo, MSN, GTalk, AIM, ICQ, MySpace and Facebook.

1. Press the green Callkey for “OK” key’s action
2. Press the right soft key for the left soft key’s action
3. Press the menu key for the  right soft key‘s action
4. Exception : When entering text in a pop up window the soft keys (labeled OK and Cancel) work as labeled.

  7. it does not work on samsung gt-b3210 at time of selecting language the ok key doesnt work

  8. Installed but cannot finish setup due to unmapped left soft key. Sanyo Incognito.

  9. Yo Dennis. The EBuddy 1.5 works absolutely wonderful on the Samsung Seek.

  10. I have had version 1.50. Downloaded it, on my CMDA phone,for a few months,now..9ff of Getjar.. I have the Sanyo Incognito for Boost. Works great! One of my favorite apps,besides Opera Mini by far!

  11. Works on the i856 except with some button mapping errors. Does not work on the i335, fails when loading classes.

  12. hey i downloaded the ebuddy 1.5 on my i9.. only problem i have is when i highlight a buddy on aim and go to click on chat to im them the chat button is disabled u cant highlight it… can someone please help me :/ with this problem. does anyone else have an i9 and have this problem?

  13. thank you 🙂

  14. hey i was just wondering where did Darren find the ebuddy app version 1.5 for i9. I own an i9 and was wondering if you could tell me where to download the 1.5 ebuddy app.

    • The one on this page is the one that works on Darren’s i9.

  15. Won’t work on the Sanyo Incognito. Button mapping doesn’t work for the left soft key and no other button works as replacement. Consequently, you can’t even get past the first screen to pick a language.

  16. I actually went to Mgetjar before you posted your response and found eBuddy ver1.5 and found it to install just fine. And get this, during the setup there was actually a step to toggle your “OK”, L/R softkeys, and directional keys. But, it is still a piece of crap, no matter how much you polish it. Yahoo and itself were the only two networking sites it would make a connection to. If you are just bored of looking at Ymessenger and want to create an account at yet another social networking site, I would highly recommend this app for you. 007

  17. I have a Sanyo SCP 6760 or an Incognito and i can tell you that neither 1.4 or 1.5 will work on this phone. It can be downloaded and started, but none of the keys work except for the OK or ENTER keys, like the instructions stated but none of the softkeys or the talk button work. Just thought you should know. 007

    • Nothing on this site is tested or optimized for the Boost CDMA phones. Try downloading eBuddy using your phone’s browser at http://get.ebuddy.com

  18. this doesnt want to create the account or log in on my i856

  19. It does work in the I680 Brute

  20. ummm i just got a motorola backflip and i dont know if this ebuddy work on it though

    • None of the apps on this site will work on the BackFlip, which is an Android phone. Click the Market icon on the phone and search for eBuddy. It’s there.

  21. No jar/jad files for downloading?

    • You’re right. I’ve added them.

  22. i tried to download ebuddy 1.4 and it wouldnt let me sign in

  23. On my i465, I couldn`t even download Ebuddy 1.5. You are lucky to get a error message.

  25. Hey i got the i856 and it works great on my phone just wanted to let u know
