Default Can I put AIM on my 8310?

Please Login to Remove!

I've been looking for ways to do this and haven't found one yet. Does anyone know if it's even possible? Thanks.

You actually use the "Get Key" menu item. It will give you a key for the trial.

Pretty much everyone has purchased it. It's, by far, the best IM application out there for the BB.

Just type JiveTalk into the search bar and you'll find lots of threads about it. The search bar is your friend here at BBF.

I've had it running since beta trials, no issues. You'll find a long thread of detailed info about it over in our Aftermarket Software section.

Jivetalk is amazing. I let it run 24/7 and it does not mis a beat. Well worth the price. The mai reason why I carry the 8310 over the iphone is jivetalk.

I prefer MacRumors, thanks. I'm surprised meebo hasn't made a client for BB yet. Glad I ditched my BlackBerry for an iPhone.

Oh well, threadcrapping is not looked too highly upon either around here.
Consider this a warning, continue it and you'll have a vacation.
