    Use Google Talk.

    It's a bit of a chore to set up. Is about 95% reliable.

    But it's FREE!

    No. You can set Google Talk up to log in to many IM services at the same time. ICQ, AOL, Yahoo, MSN, etc.

    Yes, Google Talk can be used with a Jabber/MSN gateway to have your MSN IM buddies talking to you over Google Talk.

    I use PSI to set it all up on my PC

    Choosing a reliable MSN/Jabber gateway is a bit hit and miss in my experience, but when it's works it's very cool.

    I agree with all of the above.

    I had recently typed out a how-to in pin form, and I was going to post it, but life happens and I got busy. Then I got a new BB and now the pin is mostly gone.

    But I will retrieve it later today and post those instructions.

    ok this is new to me? I can setup BB Google Talk to use MSN?
    anyone got a direct link to a site that explains how to accomplish this?
    i didn't think MSn was jabber compliant

    I'm at work now, but when I get home tonight, I will post a step-by-step.

    Don't worry about how it works, just know that the final outcome is that it DOES work.

    Re: MSN

    Thanks for the links on how to do this. I was able to set this up on my bb this afternoon and it works great. Always wanted MSN on my bb but did not want to pay for it.

    It took me a while to find a jabber server with a "working" MSN transporter. To help anyone interested use njs.netlab.cz under Service Discovery in PSI

    Lightbulb Re: MSN

    http://psi-im.org/wiki/Main_Page

    Fully detailed. Easy to read.

    To start, you need:

    - gmail.com address
    - psi client

    Psi client is available at:

    http://psi.affinix.com

    It's multi platform / multi OS.

    Because Google Talk offers no services, you will need an additional jabber account from another server.

    To find a list of jabber servers: http://www.xmpp.net

    Use the psi wiki for help with setting up a jabber account on a server and then register for gateway services (this is where you add your MSN / aol / yahoo log in and obtain your contact lists).

    Once you have a jabber account set up, and your services added, and your buddies imported, then you're ready to go back to Google Talk in psi client. When logged into GT on the psi client, you can add a service of a server other than google.

    Then what happens is basically this:

    - you sign in to Google Talk with your @gmail.com name
    - Google Talk automatically signs in to the jabber server of the other account you added to GT
    - that jabber server logs in to your MSN / yahoo / aol

    The set up is a bit of a show, and the subsequent underlying process seems a bit confusing, but it works. And it takes only about 3 seconds more to sign in to all of that and see your contacts from all those IM platforms in Google Talk.

    The only snag is to find a reliable jabber server. I've gone to three different servers before finding one that is reliable.

    Anyway, after all that is done, then you're ready to download GT 4 BB. Get that ota @ http://www.blackberry.com/googletalk

    The next step is to streamline Google Talk on your BlackBerry with other apps. To do this you need to add the jabber email addresses of your GT contacts to their respective address book entries.

    For example:

    My Friend:
    His MSN login is My.Friend@hotmail.com

    Me:
    I have set up my jabber account: Me@myjabber.com

    Google Talk sees My Friend through the myjabber.com server.

    Myjabber.com sees My Friend through the gateway.

    Google Talk contact looks like:

    My.Friend%hotmail.com@msn.myjabber.com

    In my address book on BB, I already have My Friend's email as My.Friend@hotmail.com

    I will also add a second email address My.Friend%hotmail.com@msn.myjabber.com

    This will allow the Google Talk application on the BlackBerry to see the address book entry and give click wheel access to chat, email, SMS, and phone call.


    Phew! I'm spent!

    It's a bit much to wrap the mind around at first, I admit. But it works.

    Get through that, and you're GOLD!

    Let me know if you need help.
