Default I need HELP !!!!! FAST!!! [Instant Messaging / Carriers]

Please Login to Remove!

I live in Ottawa and I am going to buy a Blackberry this week and I need to know:
1. Is there any RELIABLE way to have this working with a "messenger" such as MSN, Yahoo, AIM?
2. Is there a specific provider that one would recommend? Bell, Roger's or Telus?
3. I have heard of BerryVine- Is this the REAL thing? Does it really work?

Please help, I will be travelling soon and this is urgent.

Thanks folks!!

1) Yes - check out Verichat
2) No idea - I would check out the modem thread perhaps see which one opens ports etc
3) Verichat appears to be the more developed product.

Rogers, Rogers, Rogers, Rogers.

Best one for BlackBerry in Canada. May be a bit more expensive but WORTH IT!

Verichat is the most reliable one. Please see my IM FAQ:
http://www.blackberryforums.com/viewtopic.php?p=25166

Also check out the rest of my BlackBerry FAQ:
http://www.blackberryforums.com/viewtopic.php?t=269

Please be warned, if Verichat does not work right away on your BlackBerry, you may need to get a Hosted BES/MDS solution at $10-$25 extra per month.

Thank you so very much! This is now the second reply I get saying that Verichat is THE thing to get!
Ok then, I am going to shop and buy that Blackberry this week. Hope it does what it is supposed to do!
Cheers!

Just so you know -- get the model 7290, not the 7780 or 7280.
