    With Meebo's force closes and lack of chat history, does anyone know of a better chat client? Preferably one supports both AIM and YIM.

    I've also yet to find a decent chat client. Meebo was the best so far, but because of the issues above I don't do instant messaging from my Droid.

    I try to avoid it, but when I'm at work and having issues with remote desktop to my home PC and I forgot my laptop, it's my only option

    Because they both are 3rd party APPS that don't work very well.

    I am not sure what you are talking about. I rarely have a FC on Meebo. It has the number of chat messages that I set it for in history. Now should the APP close, it does not save them.

    By the way, Meebo does not use your test messages for the IM functions. It is a true connected (network) IM APP.

    I am new to the DROID phone. So far I find that the app eBuddy works perfect as a chat client for my phone. Two things however need improved ASAP:

    1. eBuddy needs to add Skype ASAP.
    2. eBuddy needs to allow you to change the font size in the chat and the ability to use bubbles.
    Other then that I have no problems with eBuddy on my phone. It stays connected and never crashes.

    I so can't stand the bubbles.... that was the FIRST thing that I turned off on every chat client I tried. If it couldn't be turned off.... I uninstalled it.
