Welcome to the BBForums.

I don't know of a free one that serves all those clients.

JiveTalk is the best with IM+ coming in second (IMO.) However, neither are free. You get what you pay for.

I just don't think Skype is on JiveTalk.

What a tragedy.

I'd recommend JiveTalk, but it is not free.

Fancy that.

As others have said, nothing free that works with these services.

I've found that I'm quite content with the free Google and AIM clients. I see no reason to be on dozens of IM services. If you happen to like to IM with people who all love THEIR service and refuse to use a common one, then yes, you're stuck with needing to have a client that handles it all.

One app like JiveTalk that does them all (except for skype) is quite handy. I deleted all the preloaded ones (4 of them, I think) and just installed JT. It takes up less space than the 4 preloaded ones. JiveTalk simply can't be beat.

There's a free one called palringo. You have to register on a pc but it works well. It includes yahoo, aim, etc. You can download it directly to your device at http://palringo.mobi. But like I said. You have to go to palringo.com to register.
