    You can try downloading IM+ Over the air at wap.shapeservices.com. I think you can get a free trail.
    You can also get Ramble OTA - http://wireless.sra.com/ramble/

    I'd recommend ramble myself, its completely free. If your not going to "need" MSN/ICQ/Yahoo/Jabber then you might as well grab ramble

    You'll see your complete buddy list on ramble. You can add/delete too.

    Sometimes ramble freezes up or takes a bit longer than it should to complete some tasks....does ramble have any known glitches or anything?

    It may be a memory problem on my end, but I find it takes quite a while to switch conversations when the screen fills up. You have to clear the conversation then it runs smooth again.

    Also, it may be a coverage issue, but occasionally it will log me off. No biggie.

    Has anyone gotten the audio notifications to work. Vibrate works, but no dice on the audio.

    I try to keep the audio off. I don't want to forget and have it start chirping at work. And I have had the same sluggish or lock up problem with ramble.

    The audio actualy seems to work; but you have to put the speaker to your ear to hear it, lol. I don't know why it does that; nor does anyone else seem to have a clue why it's just so soft.

    And yeah, sometimes it's a bit sluggish... but I figure it's much cheaper than IM+. Free software is bound to have a few issues.

    I've had the lock up problem but I just switch over to ramble and eventually it seems to go away on its own.

    ~~~Posted via Blackberry @ wap.pinstack.com~~~how about buddy info, I am having trouble retrieving buddy info. An error msg pops up and disappears before I can read it and then shows a blank screen. Any ideas?

    Re: AOL Instant Messanger 7100i

    Im having a problem with AOL messanging with all the IM clients. They dont show some buddies even though i know they are online. Now if i set them to show all buddies , i can choose to message any buddy that "shows" as offline and from there on we are able to communicate. Any thoughts?
