Contact Testers
Suitable for iChat 2.x and iChat 3

Testing with Another User

Use the Tables below to contact the various Test Accounts or Real people testers.

Table 1. These account names need to be added manually to your Buddy List.
Current Known test users (Be polite and Text a request first please).

Regarding the next Table. This has been edited in May 2006. It now includes the relevant screen name of the person (Where they have agreed). Their Apple ID is also listed which, in most cases, links to a profile at the Apple Discussions. This can be the Current discussions and in some it is the Profile in the Previous Discussions. With the Previous discussions you may find that if you have recently registered on the Apple Discussions you may find that you do not see the whole Profile and the iChat name is missing from the display.

Regarding the iChat name - some prefer arrangenments by email first - some list trial account @mac accounts that are not current email accounts, just to add to your fun.

Add the Test account name or the contact's account/screen name into your iChat Buddy List. I would suggest Texting first. Then you can double click the Video icon.
