Its rumored RIM will produce their own in the future but who knows how long that will take.

You options:
Beejive
IM+ / IM+ Lite
Trillian

I think those are the big 3 contenders and most offer a free trial to test with.

I gave up on IM software a long time ago. I use regular text messaging, or for chats with the other "cool" kids I use BBM.
