Default Yahoo IM on Pearl

Does anyone know if it is possible to do Yahoo instant messenger through pearl?
Or if not that, any Computer to Phone instant messenger service?

I don't know about your pearl (If you even own one yet), but there is a yahoo message app pre-installed on the pearls. Works right out of the box.

Yes, find one of the third party instant messaging applications that use Yahoo and have at it...

and others... check the Aftermarket Software forum below this one...

and if you are getting a Pearl on Cingular's network....some of those IM downloads from BB's site don't work on Cingular network but i saw a notice recently of Cingular/ATT putting out IM application of their own that works w/ Yahoo. Just make sure you have a Text Messaging plan on your account (preferred the Messaging Unlimited for 19.99 if you plan to IM lots).

PS: Just checked the note and it says the app. will be available around Mid May for the Pearl...sorry to get hopes up early.
