    icq and aol

    Advertisement



    I am assuming AOL and ICQ has been out for a while for blackberry but I just noticed that they can now be downloaded from http://mobile.blackberry.com/ I have not seen them on their before so I thought I would share for the new stackers that may want them. I do not use them so I don't know how well they work.

    I use ICQ, and it works.

    Not great, but it works.

    The one feature it is missing, is offline messaging. But the same goes for MSN. The even have the sounds from the original ICQ. I prefer it over any other client or network.

    Unfortunately, all my clients are on MSN.

    All you really need is two IM clients.

    MSN and Yahoo can send messages to each other, so choose your favourite

    ICQ and AIM are both owned by AOL. So you can send messages between them as well.

    I have MSN and ICQ, so I can talk to Yahoo and AIM users.

    Frankly, I find that Jive Talk is the best option if you need multiple chat clients. While you can have two separate ones, it is simply easier to have one application that integrates everything. Plus, Jive Talk seems to work much better than the stand alone applications anyway.
    As always, just my opinion...

    Just downloaded the aol. Prior to this I could only use aol through an app from att using texts. But this app appears to run on data. Can anyone confirm this? Seems good so far~via BB Curve 8310(wap.pinstack.com)~

    Only thing I don't like about the stand alone AIM and ICQ clients is that they log me off after an extended period of inactivity.
