Default IM question

Please Login to Remove!

What IM programs are out there that use data rather than SMS. I ask this because i only have 1500 SMS's and i have unlimited data and if got a data IM program i wouldn't be using as many SMS's.


Cheers,
Justin

JiveTalk is probably the hands down favorite here on the board. It uses only data not SMS. BB Messenger uses data only as well.

Ditto! JiveTalk is excellent. IM+ by ShapeServices is another good choice, but their option is more expensive.

Does JiveTalk send alerts by a net alert?

Once JiveTalk is installed you can configure notifications within your Profile.

JMHO but JiveTalk is the best hands down as Thatzmister2u mentioned above. If you have multiple IM accounts you can use it on all. For example I have my Google, MSN and Yahoo on it, and can be signed into all of them as same time. Think it has a few others it supports like AOL & ICQ. It's also got a 30 day trial, and is well worth the small price to keep it.

Yea i have Yahoo!, MSN, and AIM so i want one where i can be on all of them. I am downloading the trial and probably will buy it.
