You will have MUCH better luck with another IM client llike JiveTalk, which will login to your AIM/AOL screen name. There is not a pure AOL chat client for the BlackBerry.

Save yourself a lot of hassle and get yourself Jivetalk for $19.95. It is the single best instant messenger client on any platform (trust me, I've tried them all). You can get it at beejive :: JiveTalk mobile messaging

I found Miranda (Jabber Client) to work best for me... Dump All IM clients (aim, yahoo, gtalk, msn, irc) into Google Talk then install Google Talk on your BB. An added benefit is that you'll see all your IM contacts on your PC (after logging into Gmail/Google Talk) and it's free.
