Default Which IM do you use on your Blackberry? (New)

Please Login to Remove!

I know I did this poll before.

The reason I am doing this again is because Verichat is going to shut down and people are asking which IM they should get.

Unfortunately, I think my old poll got deleted because it was around for a very long time. (Probably to save space.) I wish they have kept it so I can see which one did not receive any votes so I can exclude it from my poll.

I know there's lot more than on the list. I only choice the ones that been most talked about because of the limits on the poll.

I also did not include the PIN Messager since that can only be used between Blackberry users. So that's why I did not include it on the list.

Anyway, vote away...

(edited: UPDATE)

UPDATE:

Just in case you are wondering what is OZ, it comes with your phone from your carrier or you can download it from your carrier.

Thanks. I spent like 30 minutes looking for it.

You must have lots of time on your hands.

Lots of time, no, the experience to properly navigate through a forum, yes.

No offense, but just what do you believe you're going to discover here?

First, people who use one messenger service exclusively are going to have different needs than someone, like me, who uses multiple services (believe me, I wish I didn't, but that's the way it is... I have contacts on MSN, Yahoo, Google, AIM and Skype).

Second, vBulletin doesn't allow you to vote for more than one choice.

So let's say for the sake of argument that Ramble ends up being the winner... Is that because people think it's an awesome IM client? Is it because it's free? Is it because they are only using AIM and don't need a multi-client solution? And what's that supposed to tell me relative to the other clients?

Sorry - I'm not trying to harsh on you. I'm actually interested in the results, but I don't see how this poll is going to be useful.

To clarify, which one do you use the most often and which one you think is the best.

Would also be interesting to know the pros/cons everyone finds with their IM choice.

The problem with OZ messenger however is that it uses SMS does it not? So people without the SMS plan will have to pay, many use Ramble and IM+ just because it sends through data, so we wouldn't have to be charged with another 20 per month.

The reasons I use Google Talk:

1. It's free.

2. It works with my Cingular plan.

3. I can actually access my Yahoo, MSN and AIM contacts through it.

Hmmm. i'm not sure which one to use. Im on a BES, on an unlimited data plan, and use MSN on my PC for messenger. Can I use this for free on my BB Pearl? Does the BES need to be configured in anyway?
