Default Need messenger to talk to AIM, Yahoo, Microsoft

Please Login to Remove!

I need a messenger client for my Blackberry 8800 that will talk to friends with AIM, Yahoo Messenger, and Microsoft Messenger. Blackberry Messenger doesn't cut it because I undestand it only talks to other Blackberry users. Is there a universal client like Trillian does on a PC?

I don't think the last post is going to help him. Since he needs 10 posts or more to see links.

I hate the rule.

There are several options, but consensus seems to be that Jive Talk is a good bet for what you need to do.

I tried IM+ and think it's pretty poor for the price.

There is a post by spencer_cds that tells you how to get messenger to work for AT&T.
