    Well i dont really want 2 accounts..but my phone was set up with my main/work acount so Gtalk is using that one...But for my Friends i Use a separate gmail acount and i cant sign into gtalk with that acount if i can have just my friend account signed onto Gtalk that would be fine but i cant figure out how to chage it

    Try Meebo, it supports multiple gtalk accounts.

    Unless you Root the phone, it isn't possible. Whenever you download an app it will "upgrade" over the previous install and thus never give you two of the same icon. If you had admin access to your phone you could download it and not overwrite the previous install and then you would be able to have two. I am not sure though if this would enable you to type on two accounts, or just give you two installs of Messenger.

    Why not just add the people you want to talk to from your droid onto the gmail acct linked to your phone. I am sure it would not be an issue and then you dont need to juggle two accts.


    Or use meebo and have it sign on with the secondary acct.

    Just give those you want to chat with your work email...unless they really aren't that good of friends and if that's the case, what's the big deal?
