    Try Meebo IM. I have tried several, and this is the only one that I have found that even comes close. I do not understand why we can't get an APP like what is available for the standard Verizon phones.

    The Smiley's in Meebo are microscopic, and if you set up multiple services, it shows all of your friends in one single list. I would like them to be separate like they are on the normal Verizon phones IM client.

    I tried Hi MSN, and found it really blah. It is very basic, but it does do what it is designed to do.

    By the way, I have seen lots of posts that state Meebo uses DATA only not your SMS messages.

    Overall rating for Palringo on the market is not very high. Looks like there are some comments about Battery issues, and others that just hate it.

    Has anyone actually found an app that will allow you to message ppl on your windows live account while they are offline or to their mobile device? I have ppl that have their account set up to go to their mobile device, yet when i log in they show off line and i can not message them like I could if I was on windows live
