i actually bought IM+ last night but seem to have issues with my hotmail account.. keeps telling me that password doesnt work but it does connect sometimes and drops it.... i've been reading the threads and heard about Beejive... thoughts? I use aim, google talk and msn mostly... well and facebook when on it too.... that said, im not a huge im person... just use it to communicate with my parents since they live in south america. Thanks

Please read this 16-page thread (http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=571613&highlight=Beejive), I'm pretty sure you'll get a lot of thoughts from there.

Everyone talks about how amazing beejive is. I bought it the other night and while I admit that I haven't completely delved into its features, i'm not that impressed - I miss the full integration of the address book that adium gives. Then again, beejive is for sure much better than most other mobile IM clients. I guess I'm just comparing it to too high of a standard.

Then again that might be the worst review I have ever seen. Comparing a desktop client to a mobile client? Seriously.. that deserves a "wtf".

I like Pinger phone(after the fixed update, since it totally deleted almost all my contact) and Nimbuzz.

Pinger is good since you can IM your phone contacts as well for free SMS.

Nimbuzz i thought had a pretty easy interface as well making use skype calling.
