Default Best third party IM software?

Please Login to Remove!

I chat a lot when not on moderating on my makeup forum....

So is there such a thing?? Yahoo Messenger and MSN both run on my 8700c in both browsers but it's a pain... And AT&T doesnt support Yahoo IM directly last time I nchecked.... So is there a thrid party IM package that works well with both? That will run on my 8700c... on AT&T....

And is there any freeware IM packages that work at all?

Thanks

Check out JiveTalk. It works great, is very popular, and is reasonably priced. IM+ is another one but costs more. Both work with multiple IM clients.

JiveTalk / BeeJive IM is the best I have used when it comes to battery consumption and maintaining an online status.

This jivetalk coupon was just posted yesterday. It should still be good.

Current JiveTalk Coupon $5 off (8/11/08)

I bought the transferable license, which was good since I recently got a new device. It costs a little more, but is worth it.

JiveTalk:
- excellent user interface
- great on battery consumption
- very stable - rock solid
- easy to use, coexists with other programs with no problem
- very professional execution overall

Highly recommended.

No, Jivetalk uses data, not SMS.
You won't get charged for text messages.
