This has been asked a million times, use the search button next time.

Anyway the best IM application is Jivetalk.

The two best applications out there are probably JiveTalk and IM+ Instant Messenger. I prefer JiveTalk for the interface and the price.

Jivetalk is the best IM program. It works pretty well for pounding sand also.

I prefer IM+. Now if Trillian was on the BB, I'd drop it like a stone.

I think you'll find that the forums are partial to Jivetalk and for good reason - it's great and it works.

I think a million is a bit high! . . . . .

You meant to say: In my opinion the best IM program is . . . . .

IM+ or JiveTalk would be the best, they provide access to all the major IM networks.

You can get IM+ for 50% off on the crackberry.com today only.

I would try the trials of both IM+ and JiveTalk and see which one you like better.

Long time IM+ user (Palm, Windows Mobile, and on my older BlackBerry) but this WebMessenger looks appealing...

Are there any downsides to using WebMsg over IM+?
