Iskoot. Or paying for IM+ add on for skype.



I heard their was a memory leakk(in the last 2) a patched version is available(mobile.blackberry.com). The only software I have every bought for my bb is jivetalk and I heartily heartily recommend for IM any service (skype still as of yet unsupported)!! Its fantastic though despite that.

Fully agree with the JiveTalk recommendation. I was dubious about spending money on an applications. But once converted from $ to it was fairly cheap. You can transfere from one device to another AND it works a treat. I can sign in with 3 of my MSN accounts, my Yahoo and my ICQ, all at once.

Worth the small investment in my opinion.
