Great value Unlimited Broadband from an award winning provider

Earlier this year, Nokia announced its collaboration with Yahoo! and that together they aim to offer compelling Internet experiences. As part of this alliance, Yahoo! would become the exclusive, global provider of Nokia’s Ovi Mail and Ovi Chat services branded as “Ovi Mail / Ovi Chat powered by Yahoo!” Well, over the last six months there has been substantial progress with this venture, and Nokia has today announced that Ovi Mail / Ovi Chat will now be powered by Yahoo! Hit the jump to find out more.

You will still get free email and IM accounts from Ovi by Nokia, which you can set up and access from your mobile phone, and you’ll get enhancements that let you do even more with Mail and Chat. A few additional features that will be rolling out over the coming weeks include:

  • Grow your friends list: Chat users will be able to invite Yahoo! Messenger friends into their friend list.
  • Use the brand new Mail website: Mail users will soon get themes, improved attachment support, and Ovi Chat integration into the web mail experience.
  • Chat from the web: Chat users can start chatting with friends from any computer as well as from your Nokia, giving you more opportunities to stay in touch with friends and family.
  • If you currently use Mail or Chat, you must take special action.

Because of the major changes, you must accept additional Terms of Service and Privacy Policy to keep using Mail and Chat. You can accept these by visiting https://t.ovi.com and entering your Nokia account details and clicking Next. Ovi will also send you a reminder email and, if you are a Chat user, an instant message from ovi‑chat@ovi.com that includes a link to the website above. If you check your email on the Mail website, you can accept the additional Terms and Privacy Policy when you login.

If you currently use Contacts for instant messaging on your Nokia, you need to do a little bit more to take advantage of the new features. To get started, you first need to find the Chat application. It may already be pre-installed on your handset, or you can download it at the Ovi Store. Then launch Chat on your phone, select Register/Create Account, and follow the instructions to log in with your existing Nokia account credentials and you’re set.
