1) are you registered with the ICQ transport?
2) is the ICQ transport running? it is currently down on jabber.org.

Easiest way to test these is to attempt to re-register with the ICQ
transport. If you get the registration dialog and instructions, the
transport is up. If it contains your usename and other information, you
are online through it. If those fields are blank, it doesn't recognise you
as being subscribed. If it does not come up with the dialog, it is
currently down.

Next time you log into ICQ through Jabber, it should automatically send
the subscription request.
