Default would like to develop a Chat app

Please Login to Remove!

Hi All,

I would like to develop a Blackberry Chat application (like Yahoo Message) for learning purpose.

Do we need to use any paid APIs/Service from the Blackberry/RIM like BIS etc?

Is it possible to create peer-2-peer connection in blackberry? If yes then please provide your suggestions for the same.

If no then Can we use the XMPP protocol to develop the chat application?

Please assist me to initiate the development.

thanks,
buzzz

Nope, you can use WIFI for free if you want.

Note too sure about this.

Yup. That's what Google GTalk uses.
