    Re: AIM on AT&T Curve

    Hey there skatecrazy, and welcome to PinStack!

    To answer your question, the best thing to do is get the program JiveTalk. JiveTalk will allow you to access messengers such as AIM. This is because AOL does not make a version of AIM for BlackBerrys.


    You can try it here for 30 days:
    http://www.beejive.com/

    OR

    You can download Ramble, IT'S FREE!
    http://wireless.sra.com/ramble/



    Good Luck!

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ although I had AIM on my Pearl out of the box... (I think that was a TMobile thing) I highly recommend JiveTalk.

    I just installed the trial yesterday and will definitely buy this one...

    I use ramble IM on my 8700 and its far better than the AIM client that is included with the MSN/Yahoo/ICQ/AIM package in that it is real time and not a text message.

    Re: AIM on AT&T Curve

    If you use the included Instant messenger program on the Curve, does it use up your allowed Text Messages? Can you cirumvent this by having the IM's go strictly over data using the 3rd party tools listed above?


    thanks

    If you're referring to bb messenger, then no, it only uses data. It doesnt count against your texts.

    Re: AIM on AT&T Curve

    The reason I ask is because I am very close to buying the Curve from Amazon and for the Blackberry Personal plan it says that you get 1000 messages for either text, im, video, or picture.

    See:
    BlackBerry Personal (Send and receive personal e-mail plus 1000 text, video or picture messages. No corporate connectivity.)
    Unlimited data, send and receive 1000 messages of any kind (text, IM, video, picture) and only $0.05 per message for overage. Access all of your emails from up to 10 ISP accounts while on the go! Included on a voice plan, pay only $39.99. Service may not be available in all areas. View Map and Coverage Limitations. Does not include connectivity to a corporate BlackBerry Enterprise Server.
    This is actually different from the Blackberry Personal Max offering on the AT&T site, which offers 1500 minutes for this price. Anyone else seeing this?

    Re: AIM on AT&T Curve

    Current AT&T has a plan for $30 for email and web browsing only. The Personal Max plan is $45 for data, email, and 1500 messgaes for IM, text, picture, and video. But thats in Chicago, where I am, and it does state that the deals vary by location.

    I would go for it if you really want the Curve and/or AT&T.

    Re: AIM on AT&T Curve

    The only program on my BB that I paid for was Jivetalk. Well worth the price, even the 29.99 User license which allows you to transfer it from phone to phone if you ever need to buy a new one.
    Cingular is now the new at&t

    The best all-in-one messenger software I use is IM+ - it's got ICQ, AOL/AIM, MSN, Yahoo, Jabber, Google Talk, MySpace and Translator. The best $50 bucks I've ever spent on a mobile application.

    yup. At&T. sounds like jivetalk seems to be an overwhelming winner in this case. we'll see what happens...
