    Shapeservices, has software out called IM+. Probably one of the best Instant Message programs out there. ALso note: It uses data, not text messaging.

    Download from the link below and install via the Desktop Manager. (7Day- Free Trial, however it is worth the money!)

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ I agree with both of the previous posters. I use ramble cuz I'm not too much into instant messaging, otherwise I would have IM+.

    Krystle

    On your BB, Go to Options (the spanner symbol)>advanced options>TCP
    At APN, add wap.voicestream.com
    leave username and password blank
    save and close

    I notice you have two threads running, suggest you continue the USB issue on the other thread. Hope this helps

    I tried IM+ and although it is a neat little all in one program, i felt that RAMBLE, which can be downloaded OTA for free is a much better program overall. Again I didn't really give IM+ a thorough "test drive", i just felt that ramble was a better aim client over all.......and it was FREE!

    Iam also looking into getting ramble for my 8700g. I just had one question.

    If I download ramble and use it on my blackberry every "IM" I send will go threw text messaging or do I have to have a data plan to use ramble as well?

    Thanks

    You need a data plan to use Ramble, but I suggest JiveTalk. I used Ramble last year and got disconnected quite frequently.

    Is there any kind of program that will let me instant message people but in text messages instead of data?

    Sultan... Download the Tmobile Messenger... Its text msg yahoo, msn, aim... Ramble diconnected me a lot too. JiveTalk is a fine program. Such a shame that we have to pay for a solution when they have AIM for BB but you can't get it if u r a Tmo customer. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    JiveTalk is the way to go. 30-day trial, but 19.99 to buy. Still worth it. It has AIM,MSN,ICQ,GoogleTalk, Yahoo, etc. Just overall great client. You also can have your own away messages like the PC version of AIM.
