i currently use ebuddy and i can tolerate the other ads, but what i can't stand is when i'm logged in on my phone and at the end of my status is always: "on my mobile with Ebuddy blahblah". it's really annoying, and it always screams to the world i'm on an android and i don't really want to brag about it since a lot of my friends aren't able to have one. also, it's a walking ad and i hate it. is there any way to remove that? if not, what are some other good FREE chat applications for android? ones that: -always display me as logged on, even if my phone is off, etc. (for some reason i like it like that...) - doesn't kill my battery (ebuddy i admit is pretty good at not killing my battery) and yeah, nice interface, all that stuff does imo do that? thanks!
