If you are going to use multiple services then I think jivetalk is the choice.

I think that when some will prefer others that jivetalk is the favorite.

Good luck.

Another vote for JiveTalk. Features and price can't be beat in my opinion.

Jivetalk is the one. Tried them all. If you only use Yahoo Instant Messenger, then the RIM supported version (freebie) is great too.

I agree. Ive tried all of the free trials, and jivetalk is way better than all the others. Im+ is coo. But expensive

Count me as another vote for JiveTalk. Good user interface, works well with all my IM accounts / services, I can leave it logged on, running all day without a problem. Has worked perfectly for me. Highly recommended.

another vote for jivetalk - especially love that when i leave it logged in over night it doesn't 'pretend' to be connected, it really still is live and working. so fast and supports file transfer - amazing tool for the price. allows me to have freedom from the desk and spend more time with the family and yet not make our programmers have to wait for me to get back to give them real time answers. love it. when i leave work, i just log on to jivetalk and set my away message (great feature) and also when i leave for lunch or quick breaks.. keeps me connected with no issues.

when I download Yahoo IM to my pearl does each IM count as a text message or does the whole thing go under my data usage?

Same thing with Jivetalk (noob questions, where can I download jivetalk )

Thanks

Default Google talk anyone?

So yea, you can't import your AOL/Yahoo/ICQ buddies, but Google Talk is really good. Just throwing it out there.
