Default Two suggestions for Apps (alarm clock and msn alternative)

Please Login to Remove!

Could anyone suggest two applications for me (preferably free ones)
I'm using an 8320 unlocked on a rogers wireless network so I can't get windows live messenger running on it.
Is there an alternative IM that will allow me to talk to my msn contacts??
secondly
I would like to be able to set multiple alarms (I have a problem waking up so I like to set them 10 minutes apart, usually 3 or 4 of them) and the only option the preloaded alarm clock has is snooze which with the hit of a scroll ball while im fumbling for the ringing phone gets shut off, and then I don't get up.
Is there another alarm app which will allow me to set more then one alarm at once??
(Again, preferably free ones or cheap ones.. I'm not into msn enough to spend $30, it would just be nice to have)

Thanks everyone!

It's a great alarm program. But unfortunately it does not wake up the BB if it is turned off at night - the regular alarm program does indeed wake it up. A major drawback for me!

Two flaws from my perspective with SmartAlarms - one, as mentioned, is it does not turn on the BB to sound the alarm.

I do not want it infinitely sounding the alarm or buzzing the buzzer. I walked away from my desk without the sometimes "unheard from" BB and my secretary wanted to smash it since it kept going off. I want to limit the REPEAT until function.

eh, I would recommend not turning off something you expect to wake you in the morning, especially if you know it won't turn on the BB to wake you on its on.

There is a limit to the repeat function. Set it, and maybe tell your secretary she can click on "dismiss".
