I live in Englad and I am using a Motorola V3 phone. I am unable to download mxit onto my phone and so I tried to use it on my computer, but Im having problems opening the application after I click on ‘normal’ in the process that you’ve given.Any advice? Thank you very much for your help.
well my mxit on the pc isn’t connecting and says registration failed when my internet connection is working perfectly and i am registered fine…
—————————————- Hay, Check that your network allows connections on port 9119, if you are in an office or something. Otherwise, check your Firewall if you have one, let it allow connections on that port.
I went to http://www.mxit.co.za/beta (ww1.mxit.co.za/beta on the website) and the page doesn’t exist. I downloaded the .zip file from that link on the page and when i ran mxit it said it couldn’t be validated!?!?!
———– Hi Russel,
The beta page is only up for limited times, so it’s not available at the moment.
There was a issue with that .zip, sorry about that!
Changing your password is really easy the first thing you need to know is that you can’t change your password without being logged on so you have to logon first then you can go to -menu -settings -profile and change your password make sure you remeber it. Well if you can’t remember your password you have to send a blank sms to that number costs R2
Why is it that the mxit V.5 jad file does not open all the time…I have to download a new file repeatedly. Why do i get disconnected all the time????
Well here is a simple solution if you want to start mxit everytime without downloading it then do the following: download th Mxit v5.jad -open it with your notepad -copy the MIDlet jar url to your browser -you will the get a Mxit v5.jar file -but everytime you wan’t to use different numbers you have to edit it…
I managed to download but when I sign on it says I must get Gprs settings.
————— Hi, that’s weird. What phone do you have and what network you on?
It might be the Java settings for the Games/Applications. Because your web browser internet works because you could download it. So it could only be some other setting specific to the Java/Games section of your phone that isn’t quite right.
i get error : Please Ensure your GPRS service is set up and availible. What do i need to do??
——————- Just make sure that you are connected to the internet on your computer (if you are using MXit on the computer). And that the connection isn’t blocked by your network.
how do you save the skins and than access them later free of charge like it says that you can if your a freestyler… i dont want 2 hav 2 buy the same skin everytime i wanna use it
—————— You skins etc go to the Gallery! Speak to the Gallery contact!
Extract the files in the MidpRuntimeDLL.zip & Midp2Exe.zip.
Step 4: Make sure al the file is in the same directory. Example:
…/mxit/10131523575de4U.jad (edited like guide on top of page)
Right-Click on Midp2Exe.exe and select “Create Shortcut”.
Right-Click on the new shortcut and select “Properties”.
In the Target edit box, make this change:
“C:\..\Midp2Exe.exe” -jar 10131523575de4.jar -jad 10131523575de4U.jad
Step 6: Run the shortcut. This should create a mxit exe file. You can rename the new exe file if you want(like mxit5.1.1.exe)
Step7: From now on you only need these 2 files to run mxit:
The saved files is kept in a folder of the exe. If you give this exe to someone else remember to only give them these 2 files… You can also copy the 2 files in another folder if you have more than 1 account for mxit.
erm… i’ve created an exe using nhal emulator for 5.1.1, you guys want it. it’s exe and alot easier to use than mpowerplayer…
—————— MXit Monster says:
Thanks, got your .exe, but it doesn’t work unfortunately.
“Could not be validated…” error.
That’s a real problem, the session management is too good.
It probably works on yours cause the id is associated with your login.
Or you tested it while that id was still “open for first logins”…
I have downloaded mxit on my computer and i register or try and login because i have used it before on another computer but it continues to say registering and does not get in to mxit. Can anyone help?
i have just been told that it appears that i am online and that my contacts can see me but it does not come up on my screen that i am on – it stil says registering
————————————- Hi Sian,
If you are already registered, and you use MXit 5 on the computer, select the “Login” option, not “Register”. Version 3 only has “Register”, so you can use that to login too.
1) Update your MPowerplayer by going to mpowerplayer.com and clicking start/download. Then try clearing the game settings in MPowerPlayer “File -> Clear game settings” and try again.
OR 2) Update your Java on that computer – go to java.com
Also, are the two computers you try it on in the same place and on the same network? Because the one network (work network) might have it blocked!
I have downloaded the google talk and has run properly for a while now it does not. i try and type a message to a person and once i send the message it shows that they are off and it shows that i am offline to other people when i am on. can anyone help?
——- Hay, you are right it has been giving problems recently!
It’s the MXit to Google Talk connection that gives problems sometimes. Maybe it’s an international bandwidth problem. I would blame Telkom.
how do u use google talk to connect to mxit im in uk nd i really need it man to contact my peepz itz much cheaper
———-———-———-———-———-———-———-———-———-———-———-———-———-———-———-———- You can’t use google talk to login to MXit, but you can add MXit contacts to your google talk account.
you guys beter do something and fast!!!!!! Vodacom users can’t log in! Help!!!!!!!
———————— The weekend of 2 June 2007 – MXit is performing necessary upgrades and might not be accessible! Please try again soon!
Might get weird behaviour that looks like MXit is down or broken. Normal service will resume!
Hi, i recently downloaded mxit and have 2 cell numbers and need to swich between the old 1 to the new number. I really need to go to and old number to get a few contacts and my phone number. My old phone was stolen was stolen so i want to login with a new number but i cant. please help me asap
——————————————————————————————————- You can login with another number – the easiest is to delete MXit on your phone and download it again and enter the number you want to login with.
notice to all vista ultimate users:
I downloaded the Vista version of Java and now the Aero theme is supported! 🙂 cause with the old one when I ran mxit (when I treid cause it didn’t work) then the theme would change back to the other Vista them without Aero…
How can I delete Mxit in mpowerlayer? SOmeone ele logged in. Now I wanna take off their’s. And pu tin my number..
In the new MPowerPlayer, you can click “File” (in the top menubar), then “Clear game settings” when you have MXit open. This should “forgot” that you are logged in still and then you must logout and back in and it will start over again and you can enter your number and password.
I live in england and i hav just come bak from south africa, when i log in to mxit on my pc i have no contacts, i hav a mxit account which i have been using for the last 2 months while i was in s.a and have about 20 contacts. wen i try adding a contact on my pc an error msg appears for less than a second n dissapears. How come i don’t have any contacts wen i log in on my pc ? Pleez help ! 🙁
Hey there, thank you so much for help on how 2 install mpowerplayer, i had mxit in a couple of seconds.But i think now im gonna ask u a silly question ( blushing) the moola issue, wen I request mxit to send an sms on my behalf, it says error 007 an sms could not be sent. why not? Do I sent a sms from my cell? Will it work if I have mxit on my pc?and what is the number? pls help pls dont laugh at me.. Kayleen SA
Hey not to worry got it! I did sent and sms and moola was there waaala. Mhaw!!!
Guys, Not sure, no need to respond to my query, I sent an sms for mool and it was updated on Joebanker got it thank u Mwah!!
If you are MXit on the PC using a number that you have the simcard of, you can send an SMS for Moola from your phone and it will show up on your MXit pc 😉
That error on MPowerPlayer is because the computer can’t send an SMS – because it doesn’t have a simcard or subscription to a sms sending service by default!
Here are some numbers you can SMS to if you are using a South African SIM (MTN, Vodacom, Cellc):
Send a SMS to 34006 for 200 Moola (R2.00)
Send a SMS to 35352 for 300 Moola (R3.00)
Send a SMS to 36104 for 500 Moola (R5.00)
Send a SMS to 37371 for 750 Moola (R7.50)
Send a SMS to 38433 for 1000 Moola (R10.00)
Send a SMS to 39002 for 1520 Moola (R15.00)
International Moola will be able to be bought via Credit Card or something hopefully soon!
hey i jus want to find out if it will be possible to view messages on my pc that i have sent in the past on mix? thanx
Unfortunately not. Unless you explicitly save every piece of data sent from your PC while you are running the app. But that won’t be nice and clean to use.
In MXit you can save conversations though, then access them later wherever you are from the gallery contact.
I have a problem to rum mxit. It says that i must check my GPRS connection. What should i do to fix this problem? Thx.
—————– Hi Joe,
It could mean that the MXit port isn’t allowed on the network (at work maybe?) that you are on!
It says GPRS, but if you on the PC, it means, check your internet connection actually!
Are you using Windows Vista perhaps?
hey! my mxit says reconnecting and then it says login registration failed. it doesnt want to work. please help
—————— Check that you are online, and that it doesn’t blocked by your network!
What phone are you using?
hey, ive downloaded mxit v5 on computer it works. thanks. But everytime i go of i have to download v5 again.
what can i do.
———————- You can download the .jar file to your PC then you don’t have to download it again and again.
The .jar’s URL (http internet address) is in the .jad file!
Then you change the .jad file’s URL to just the .jar file name.
Hey, i’m having trouble connecting to mxit through mpowerplayer. It always worked perfectly but all of a sudden it just stays on connecting and won’t login. Did mxit change something so that you can’t login through the pc anymore?
Hay, That’s weird.
Did anything change on your setup on the network you are using? Installed a firewall or your work blocked it maybe?
It works fine for me and other people still! 😕
stupid question: do my phone need to be connected to the PC for it to be able to work on the PC???
Please help – i am new to all of this!
————- Yes, it definitely does need to be connected to the internet 🙂 That’s the only way your messages are going to leave your computer!
cant get moola, sent an sms ten times but mr joebanker still says my balance is 0 ? anyone had this ?
——————— This could happen if you sending the sms from a phone that isn’t the your MXit login number!
Check that it’s the same by looking in MXit -> Menu -> Settings -> Profile!
tell me does it work in UK . if it does then tell me how
But you have to have registered on MXit on your phone/emulator first! The registration facility on MXit PC client will be out soon.
Hey mate, you’ve saved my life since you put this website up, and I cant thank you enough, but, as of very late, I get and extremely strange error when trying to launch MXit through Mpowerplayer, it says something about there being a ‘pre-processing’ error involving the .jad file, does this happen to anyone else? Im afraid to think that maybe MXit wont ever work again! Please tell me you have an answer for me! Thanks!
