I know there are ways to get AIM and Y! IM access on the BB with IM+ and other clients. However, I read an article (dated in March I think) that RIM was going to start supporting both on the BB. Anyone know the status of this? If this is true and it uses the standard data plan, sounds like some of the existing offerings that charge per month or even a single license fee (like IM+) will not get much business. Anyone know the status?
Never heard of that, sorry. But I'd be interested to know. Can anyone shed any light on the first point smbyers makes that RIM intends to support AIM, Yahoo, or any other third-party instant messaging service? Sounds improbable but stranger things have happened, I guess.
Now you can call me STORMin' Norman, except my name isn't Norman.
yahoo messenger is available through nextel and roger as stated above. however i have nextel and it is completely free to use with nextels service. it does not cost anything beyond your data plan. im not sure about rogers though as im in the us and have never used rogers service.
