Default Free MSN messenger replacement?

Please Login to Remove!

One that I can use instead of the oem OZ that uses txts. I want one that uses data only. I don't really use the other IM services but if it includes them it's OK. Thanks......

Jivetalk uses msn and it uses data. Not free though, but worth paying for.

Looks like it's $5.95/month or $35 forever. Rats!

The Windows Live Messenger client for BlackBerry doesn't cost anything to use, and it should be available on all (or most) carriers now. You can get it from http://www.blackberry.com/instantmessaging or http://www.blackberry.com/livemessenger.

Default Webmessenger

Web Messenger is free - and works with MSN.

I have it, and found I just dont use it. I use IM at work - so it (IM) is more of something I use on my workstation then my phone.

But it does work.
