Default Sidekick user switching to a BlackBerry

Please Login to Remove!

Hello I'm new here. I'm switching from a sidekick to a blackberry going to have my blackberry next week and I'm just wondering does the BB come with IM servers such as AIM or Yahoo! Messenger already on it?

Welcome to the forums,
No, there are some free downloads but most are not very good. I suggest purchasing JiveTalk. It's well worth the money.

If you do a search for JiveTalk on these forums you'll see what I mean. Everyone who's tried it agrees it's the best out there right now. It works with all the major IM systems.

Welcome! Sidekicks are JUNK!

I am a former Sidekick user and I am glad to have a Blackberry!

I currently have a Blackberry 8100 Pearl White. I will soon get the Blackberry 8300 Curve when it comes out to T-mobile.

I couldn't agree more. I'm a switching sidekick user also . I've had my SK3 since it very first came out. I mean, It's still my baby and all, but I hate the quality and... alot of other things about it too lol. I'm switching to the T-Mobile 8320 around December 23rd, and I'm STOKED!!!! It's gonna be waaaayyy better .

BTW- Welcome
