Question and Answers
A couple of folks took the time to IM me this evening through the meebome widget, but unfortunately I was watching Hero and didn't see the IMs. On a sidenote, Hero and I are forming a Lost-like love/hate relationship, the cliff hanger every week is killing me I'm going to have to stop watching until the DVDs come out. But that isn't the point is it.
The first question was:
"All i get is the number of text message[s]. Is there a way to show how many minutes are left?"
The quick answer is yup, there is. The long answer is there are two ways to do that. First, if you move your mouse over the extension and leave it there for a few seconds a display will come up with more detailed information about your account, including the remaining anytime minutes for the month. The other option is to right-click on the extension and go to the Preferences. Once you get there, choose "Minutes" from the "Display in status bar" drop down. Once the extension is refreshed your minutes should be displayed.
The second question was:
"...having a problem with it not refreshing w/ the new/correct info..."
The reason for this is that the extension will only check automatically once every 10 minutes so we don't bombard Cingular with unnecessary requests. If you want it to update right when you look at it, you can right-click on the extension and choose "Refresh." That will force it to refresh and ignore the lastChecked date.
Hope that helps, post up if that did (or didn't) answer you questions. Sorry I missed you.
