JiveTalk is the best, for IM communication with any device--handheld or desktop.

A simple search here or google could find... BeeJive :: JiveTalk mobile messenger - instant messaging to go

Your buddy does not have to have it, it will contain your AIM, yahoo, gtalk , etc., accounts. Follow the instructions to set it up.

tritan, your friends don't need to have jivetalk in order for you to use it. Jivetalk is an "all in one" IM application. For instance, if your friend is on AIM or googletalk or both, all you would need to do with jivetalk is add them to your buddy list. Simple as that.

Good luck!!

Tritan, if your friends are at a PC, they use what they have always used to IM you with, AIM, GTalk, Yahoo, whatever. If they are on a BB, yes they might want JiveTalk as well, like you.

But you do not need JiveTalk <--> JiveTalk communications. JiveTalk simply is a all-emcompassing Instant message application for the BB.

Thanks for answering my questions. I am trying to find a program that will put IM Googletalk on my buddies Treo. He doesn't have anything I guess his treo only has yahoo and AIM.
