Default Which IM do you use on your Blackberry?

Please Login to Remove!

I like Ramble since it's free but I might replace it and use something else. I might go for the paid ones.

So out of curiousity, I just wondering what everyone else is using.

Unfortunely, this only allows me to post the maximum of 10 answers so I just choose what I heard the most often.

I use verichat. Use it everyday all day with no problem. Its a little slow at showing away messages but I like it. Also tried yak on. Liked it but it does not show away messages.

I used Verichat (paid version also), then Ramble but none were consistent in staying open, etc. Yak-On has been the best for me so far.

I use OZ simply because my carrier provides it with the BB.

You are missing Webmessenger which is one of the most stable.

Also many people use more than one.

I've purchased Yak-on and it's great.. no problem with this app yet. I'm currently trying out IM+ the new version.. it's preety sweet i love it, even tho i get disconnected from time to time it is still a good IM app. I hated Ramble because I always get disconnected.. but hey it's free.

I also use google talk :D

I use GoogleTalk, because it does not use SMS as the transport. So, there's no additional charge (I use T-Mobile's unlimited internet package on the 7105t).

Like I said in my post, it only allows me to put up only 10 answers so I just choose the ones that get the most talked about.

VeriChat because I need multiple services and I love the UI of the app.

I use GTalk and Yahoo. However, I have Ramble also installed but I don't use it anymore as soon as I got a Gtalk and AIM transport working.

My favorite! WebMessenger may not appear quite as slick as some of the others, but IMHO, it gets the job done and is more stable.

Even though it is not on your poll, I jumped from Verichat (subscription expired) to WebMessenger. Like it a lot- low batt use, good connection and features. About as good as Verichat was form me.
