    My wife has a Blackberry that she mainly needs so that she can use the Blackberry Iinstant Messaging service.

    I have been trying to find out if there is a way to access that Blackberry IM network from anything but a Blackberry.

    Anyone know of a way to do that?

    It's called Blackberry Messenger for a reason. To answer your post.....no you cannot use it on any other phone other than a Blackberry

    Thanks hookbill. I tried googling the topic several different ways and came up empty. So I thought I'd post and stop wasting my time searching. I'll look into the googletalk alternative.

    Kinda makes you wonder though... It's called Google Talk yet its available in places other than Google. Wow, what a concept!
