Registering For Qik 

The first thing that all Qik users must do is to register for the application at the Qik sign-in webpage http://qik.com/sign_up.  To register, a small amount of information is needed.  A username and password is sufficient for the first page of setup.  This is of course for security purposes.  The page consists of selecting the brand of the phone and phone model.  If it does not show your phone model then an option titled "other" will be at the bottom of the list.  Click "other" and type in your phone model.  Once  the phone brand and model have been chosen, the download page is next.  On the download page there will be three choices.  The first option is to get Qik via SMS.  The second option is to get Qik via PC.  The third option is to get Qik via WAP.  The first option is the most commonly used.  The phone number with an area code is needed.  Do not put in an incorrect mobile phone number, or else you will not be able to register.  It will then send a text to the phone.  This text will give further information what website to visit to download the Qik application to the phone.  Once these things are done, you will be asked to fill out your profile.  Your name and a picture is sufficient enough to get started.  You can later edit it if you want.  No credit card details are required for registration.  Qik is obviosly still in the beginning stages of building their application to new extents.  Therefore, Qik does not provide compatability with all mobile phones out in the market for sale.  Qik currently available on more than 108 mobile phones.  To see a list of phones that Qik is compatable with, check this link Supported Phones.  Qik is very sorry if they are not compatable with your mobile phone device.  But, Qik is working hard to get more phones that support it's outstanding application.  Time to enjoy the amazing features of Qik!
