Question messengers

Please Login to Remove!

Ok so I have the pearl 8130 with Verizon and I have an unlimited data plan but when it comes to SMS I only get 500 with my plan and I have been looking for a messenger that Verizon won't charge me for each one back and forth. I'm looking for something that works with aim. Does anyone know of anything that Verizon won't charge me SMS rates for? Please help.
Thanks
Victoria

Yep. The best is JiveTalk. It's not free but has a 30 day trial. You won't be disappointed, though.

Jive Talk is definately worth it! I have used IM's on cell phones for the past 5 years and Jive Talk surpasses them all. If you don't have the $20 to purchase I suggest you find a job or do some chores around your parents house.

Thanks for the parental pep talk but I have a job and a new appartment and money is kinda of tight that is why I am looking for something that is free. I don't care if it is the best thing out there. I would just really prefer not to pay for it.

I would download JiveTalk and spend the next thirty days seeing if it is worth it or finding a free replacement.
