    I have google talk on my phone and I am able to send SMS messages between my friends with blackberry. Does Google talk also work on the iphone? I'm not sure that iphone can multitask so would they be notified without having the app opened?

    I'm looking for a way to communicate without having to pay extra for text messaging.

    Oh the iPhone bashing opportunities in this post are tremendous.:) But i won't go there.

    Ask your friend what IM client they use. In the market there are several and I'll bet one of them will work with Droid and iPhone. Another thing you can do is set up your google voice for texting. This requires a little set up and your texting won't be as fast as you'd like however. Also you would need an invite to Google Voice if you don't have it already.

    You can use Google Talk on the iPhone and I am pretty sure it still notifies the user when a message is received.

    When my wife first got her iPhone back in 6/2007 she had to log on to the GTalk URL and sign on that way, but once she went to another application or "Home" she went offline.

    But there might be IM's that might have GTalk, one thing to do is a google search.

    I don't think there is a native google talk client for the iphone. I know that Bejive is nice on the iphone and gives you push notifications. I run it on my ipod touch.

    Can't hold back any longer... According to Luke Wilson, the best way is to use postcards since the iphone users can't seem to get a good signal :icon_ devil:

    Iphone does not have a Gtalk client. My brother and I were trying to figure the same thing out the other day. the only thing they can do is log onto the gtalk url. (Google and apple don't necessarily get along) Im not sure they will ever get the google apps that we have.... Besides maps

    Edit- and it will not notify them when they close the browser
