Default best multi messenger that *works* for 8800c

Please Login to Remove!

hi,

i recently changed from a 7100i and ported to cingular. i've been having trouble getting yahoo messenger to work. i get that error that everyone else is getting.

what IM application (free or paid) actually works with the 8800 on cingular ?

i'm only really interested in yahoo messenger and AIM.

thanks

grant

JiveTalk works great on the 8800c. I do not remember the email address to get the beta version of it. This software is currently only in beta so it is free right now but most likely when full version is release it will be pay to get app. But honestly it works great and I will pay if it goes to that. Search the forums and I am sure you will find the email to get the JiveTalk beta.

I had thought that the Tmo version comes with some kind of IM program, I know the Cingular one didn't. Since I dont see it on my Tmo 8800, I assume it doesn't come with any IM program.

Jive Talk has been pretty much bullet-proof for me since I got my WAP setting right. Love it.
Kai Rocks!

You can download a yahoo messenger from mobile.blackberry.com from your BB directly.

I also use Ramble IM for AIM. Works great.

Jivetalk is the best im app I have seen on any wireless device period. I have used them all and all platforms. Yes and even the sidekick.

JiveTalk really is the best IM program on the market until the carriers open up the service books for the Blackberry clients. However, the Blackberry clients are not all integrated like Jive. Jive is fast, reliable, and works solidly. I hope they do a one time charge for it rather than a subscription model once they move out of Beta.

If I use a third party software for texting (like the Jivetalk or Yahoo messenger), will my carrier still charge me for texting?

I have the unlimited data plan thu cingular.

Very curious about the price of Jive Talk when it is released. As long as it isn't way out there it should be worth it.
