    i would think an app like Jive Talk would work for AIM. Not familiar with verizon tho.

    Have to agree with Melissa.
    Jivetalk does offer a 30 day trial. That should be enough time to determine if your IM clients work with it

    JiveTalk works just fine with Verizon BB's. I have one and use it.

    As far as VZW blocking AIM, they actually don't, they just make it so you have to use their IM program which uses SMS. That way they can charge you the text costs and make a few more bucks. Nice huh?

    Jive talk or any other IM app that uses data will bypass that though.
