Is there a JAVA update/fix that will allow users with mobile broadband devices (ie Motorola Xoom) running an Android OS to use the live chat rooms?

I'm not too sure.
Personally, I'm so old-school that I use my BlackBerry solely for voice calls and the rare text.

It depends on the subscription deal we have with ParaChat.
If our level of service includes this capability, it may be possible that we must enable it in our settings before it will be accessible to users.
Certain levels of service include WAP access, and I see that there is an iPhone App available as well.
If you know anything about it, perhaps you can have a look: http://www.parachat....obile/index.htm

You can also search through their help documentation for more information about mobile services at: http://www.parachat....tation/hosted7/

thanks jedi. checked the links you posted. since mortys chat can do avatars and emoticons, you guys have at least the standard version of parachat which means mobile device support is included. any hope of seeing this feature enabled soon? there are alot of us members with ipads and tablets who are missing our friends in chat! thanks, scot

Sorry, folks.
Mobile-device chat is a No-Go.

Morty checked it out, and because our Parachat chat service comes to you via our Invision forum, and uses our forum member information for purposes of logging on, full integration between the two systems cannot be achieved, which means no mobile-device access.
At least, that is the case at this time.
