    I found a free msn app that doesn't totally suck.

    I have an 8700 and I was foolin’ around looking at java apps at getjar dot com and i stumbled on QuickIM, I was like doesn’t that cost money? Sure enough the Blackberry version does, but not the J2ME version so here is the deal: go to wap dot getjar dot com from your blackberry, then go to quick download and once there enter code 2343. Once there click on Download to mobile, et voila! That’s it. It works very well from what I have seen so far, and it certainly isn’t as flashy as some of the other clients, but I will be dammed if I am going to pay for something that is only priced because its for the blackberry. Please reserve all comments pertaining to why they charge for it, or why you’re cool because you paid for it and I am a savage heathen, or even why they need to make a buck, and so on ad infinitum. If you like the suggestion and don’t mind the J2ME version, that's swell, enjoy!

    I beta tested for Quick IM, last time I checked it wasn't free? It can be purchased here: http://www.quickim.com/products/buy-...-software.html

    CKY has pointed you to the Java version of QuickIM, not the BlackBerry version.

    Correct, the java version has no cost, all they ask is that you spread the word about it. The blackberry version can be had for free as well, provided you extol the virtues of QuickIM on 5 forums or some such nonsense, sounds like more work then is worth. As I mentioned the java version is not as flashy as the regular blackberry versions, but it is more then sufficient. It also has a slew of features.

    Follow these steps from your BB browser as mentioned by cky1billion and you can download it:

    go to wap www.getjar from your blackberry, then select quick download and once there enter code 2343.

    My guess is that your tcp settings are not set correctly, do you run any other programs that access the internet directly, like opera. Do those give you problems as well? If you look up how to set the tcp settings for your carrier, it may solve your issues. I believe they are also called APN settings as well.

    Good Luck!
