Default Cross-platform Texting App?

Please Login to Remove!

My wife has a BB Curve 8330 and I have an iPhone. The down side is that, by me moving to the iPhone, we lose BB Messaging capabilities. Is there a texting app that we can use?

I've tried installing WhatsApp and Nimbuzz on her BB 8330, but neither fully initialized. Any ideas will be GREATLY appreciated.

I'm a fan of WhatsApp.
Not sure what you mean by "neither fully initialized". Can you provide more details?

Well, I installed WhatsApp on her BB fine. When I accessed it, and it went through the registration process, it just hung there and never fully started up.

I use Google voice app for texting and since its free It doesn't matter what platform the other user is on. G-Voice is available for iPhone and BB both. But I only use BB version of it
