Default how to chat w/ Messenger users from windows

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all,
Please excuse the noob idiot question (I did do searches for this). I am not a blackberry owner but my girlfriend is, and we'd like to be able to chat from my windows browser (either IE or firefox) to her blackberry messenger. Possible?

Please let me know what I've missed.

Blackberry Messenger can only chat between two Blackberry devices.



You should try using a public IM service such as Yahoo Messenger or AIM.

Jivetalk is a very popular IM client for the blackberry and supports both Yahoo and AIM among others.

I agree with Penguin and at the same time I think it would be nice to have a desktop interface to BBM!

Jivetalk is the best, but if you don't want to spend any money, googletalk on the blackberry is also very good.
