ICQ/Mobile show Offline


I am wondering if you know if after a certain amount of inactive time, if ICQ mobile will switch to offline.  For example I have a friend who has been out of mobile service for a week.  Prior to today the mobile icon has shown that he is online as mobile, this afternoon it shows he is offline.  I know he is still out of mobile range so I am wondering if this is an automatic response from ICQ.  Thank you for your time.

Hello Sara,

thanks for your question. According to my knowledge, your assumption is correct. Facebook works the same way.

It doesn't make sense to show a user "online on mobile" if he has no network connection.

Hope this helps!
All the best!

I can answer all questions regarding ICQ except those like: "I have lost my password, how do I get it back?" because I am not an ICQ Team member, so I cannot do anything about lost passwords.


I did an education as a Management Assistant in Informatics, I am using ICQ since ICQ2000b, but of course I know the current ICQ client the best. I also used the alpha ComPad ICQ client.
