    Pearl and AOL AIM

    Advertisement



    Hey guys, its time for me to get a new phone i was looking at the pearl because of the full keyboard. But is it possible to use Aol aim on this phone without a data plan. I do not use data, but i have an unlimited text messenger plan. Thanks guys, i am new to these smart phones.

    If you have the original OZ client (thats the IM client on the phone) it will only use text message, but the one bad thing is that its really really slow.

    Yeah, when and if you get the pearl it is preloaded with a IM client on there, and that IM client only uses your text message plan.

    Pearl does not have a full keyboard...

    The AIM client that comes with the pearl sucks. I would say buying a data plan just for AIM would be worth it.

    also keep in mind that not all carriers pre-load aim clients on the pearl, when i bought mine from at&t(then cingular) i didnt get any im clients, so i dont know if anyone else had this or i'm alone ?

    Yes, i know the pearl does not have a full keyboard, but it is better than a normal phone.

    But yeah, i am going through at&t so it might not have it on there.

    if i were you and you not getting any data. i would reccomend leaving your home computer on and foward all ims to your cell phone. that what would work best. oz im is horrible and extremely slow and you need to update your buddies constantly. but if you do get a data plan. which i highly reccomend. go to beejive.com it trumps any im client on the market bar none. and its all in real time. jive talk should payyyy me lol

    if your main goal is to have mobile aim, why not get a sidekick instead?
