    Go into Fun on your phones browser, Click on Community+ in the header row, then on Live Chat.

    You can then bookmark it onto your home screen (for speed of access) if you wish

    Hi Jay,

    You will need to have adobe flash on your android.

    Do you have it? Does your Android support flash?.

    If not, then you will have to allow installation of non-market apps in settings.

    Then download adobe flash at logical choice.com/flash

    I had a similar problem. I overcame it by installing 123flashchat from google playstore and using the pc chat option from the fun home page.

    do bear in mind chat is currently not working properly the basic PC chat seems fine but anything else varies from person to person and day to day as Jim tries to fix it.

    It seams the problem is caused by adobe and others who have not upgraded flash to work with android software versions above 4.0 and thats why some tab2s will work and some wont. So if youve got a n android device running 4.0 or below dont upgrade.

    Finally sussed it and it was me that was making the mistake

    so
    on the tablet download the flashchat for android (Jims link is correct so you can use it to copy the flashchat stuff into googleplay)
    when it loads put number 1 in the id line then press start once and then exit via the homepage button- do not press twice and do not try to register as i did.
    I pressed the start chat button twice because i thought nothing had happened but it then took me to a register page

    I also downloaded the firefox app
    I clicked on the firefox app then put motorhome fun in the bar and entered, signed into fun with my id and when loaded pressed the chat for pc button and it worked i could get in chat.
    Its only took me the best part of three days to realise my very simple mistake whislt trying several different ways to get flash loaded etc.

    Hi Maggie,

    Great you succeeded !!!

    Might be an idea to ask Jim to add this as a "How to" ?
