Chikka Minute

by Ka Edong on November 24, 2005

I’ve been using Chikka messenger a lot this year. I normally don’t use it when I’m in Manila. I don’t bother.

But when I’m travelling, Chikka keeps me connected with textmates back at home.

I use Chikka’s JavaLite. It’s an online browser-run version or Chikka messenger. That way, I don’t need to install the program. I could use Chikka javalite on most public Internet shops. The only trouble is when the browser version or plugins aren’t compatible with Chikka javalite.

I just observed today that I can’t send too many Chikka messages to one person successively. The error message says that Chikka is doing this as a fight against SPAM. Thus, after a certain number of messages (around 3 or 4 ata), Chikka will not deliver subsequent messages unless the recepient replies to your messages.

Not bad … not a bad excuse … not a bad excuse for Chikka to sway their users to pitch in some revenue for the messaging company.

But seriously, thanks Chikka. I’ve used your service virtually almost for free. You’ve done many Filipinos good service.

  • hello po ulit!! ngayon ko lang update yung links ko .. 🙂 ako rin malaking tulong ng chikka kasi thats my way of chatting with my sister. kasi block sa opis nila yung YM.

  • hey airwind! how’s the air? how’s the wind? 😉

  • i don’t use the chikka messenger, but i use chikka. basta yung email lang. (chikka sends an email pag may nag send sa chikka account mo..then pwede ka na reply dun directly)

    i live in my email client hehe.

  • ramil,

    meron palang ganun ….

    heto pa, dagdagan natin… a few other less popular services of chikka

    after my chikka upgrade after 4 send sa smart lalabas yung anti spam feature..pero after nag reply n yung k textmate mo after 4 send lalabas uli yung anti spam feature..waaaa…sana d n lang ako ng upgrade..buti p s globe d ganun..

  • yeah. they need to make a profit too, eh. Sulitin mo nalang yung number of characters per message sent.

    Tsaka gawa ka nalang ng multiple accounts! e.g. use any landline number as a username.

    hassle nga lang to log-off and -on .

    keep on chikking

    hey..mga kababayan….im also a user of chikka and i think we’ve got almost the same observations… talagang ganun ang business so kahit di tayo satisfied sa service nila at least kahit papano malaking tulong pa rin sila sa atin di ba? i dont have connection with this chikka javalite service..i just want to say that we should learn how to appreciate things be it small or big… sometimes its not always good to feel satisfaction all the time…sabay ganun..he he..

    how do i use chikka javalite without installing in my computer?

  • skyline510

    anyone encounter this problem when you try to load chikka javalite

    any fixes?

  • Kix

    chikka mesenger is very cool txt far chikka has a better software than before. everyone has problem with chikka, all u have to do is update the software. CHIKKA ROCKS DUDE

  • Kix

    if u text ur frend or ur lab ones, make sure let them know to response asap. Chikka allow u to text up to 320 character, so it should have no problem texting ur flend or ur partner. 320 character is a lot, u can write a novel when u text someone special.

  • jenessa

    ei anyone who can explain why chikka is giving me an error message when i send mesage tpos sbe eh “you have no remaining credits recieving a message for a mobile will credit1” d q xa anyone hu can explain that to me.icharge b un sakin sa bbyadan q sa internet..??u can answer it trough my email

  • jenessa

    pls…. annswer me asap coz naghehesitant aq gumamit ng chikka kc bka mmya icharge sa smartbro qoh bka pagalitan aq ni mama q…

  • ibig sabihin lang nung error mo, wala ka nang credits na pang-send out ng panibagong PC-to-cellphone message.
    try mo ito:

    walang kinalaman ang chikka texting mo sa smartbro account mo.
