Default I need a good IM client!

Please Login to Remove!

I've had my 8310 for a week now and am missing having MSN and Skype which I had on my Treo 750. Is there an application that supports both of these?

I've seen a few different IM clients around but would like some opinions from some experienced users. Any help you can give me is appreciated.

Thanks.

How did you get MSN Messenger? Whenever I try downloading it I get error messages!

Search the forum for threads about IM and Chat Apps... more threads than I can count out there.

For me there is no IM client even close to JiveTalk. JiveTalk + Skype would be my chat utopia.

I am also a satisfied JiveTalk user and remember reading somewhere that they were working on implementing support for Skype in a future release.
