HI everyone,

I just bought a blackberry 7230...I am used to chatting on yahoo all the time, but i travel a lot due to my work and i wanted to know if there is some freeware available that can be used on a blackberry to chat on yahoo.

or even some site that i can use through my BB to access yahoo messenger.

i found some paid softwares claiming to be sharewares but u can only use them for 30 days.....

...can anyone help me out with this?

You can install instant messaging on BlackBerry today:

BlackBerry Desktop:
http://www.pdaapps.com

BlackBerry wireless OTA download using BlackBerry Internet Browser:
http://www.pdaapps.com/ota/VeriChat.jad

It'll likely still be superior to the basic BlackBerry IM coming to BlackBerries;
