    Hello all, I've found a working website for instant messaging on our iPhones.

    http://mob.ebuddy.com has working AIM/MSN/Yahoo clients that are web-based and work 100% on the iPhone, with full (not mobile) buddy lists. Granted, they look crappy and you have to refresh yourself (I think?), they still work and are a good substitute until something better comes out. Enjoy!

    This doesn't work on edge for me. just says connection failed. Does it only work over wifi? Might AT&T be blocking IM sites?

    aim express works for iPhone if you disable the pop-up blocker in safari.. it will still ask you if you want to allow the pop-ups, though.

    has anyone used it recently? apparently it's quite decent now. But it may be sending out spam IM messages to your users? is this true?

    If you're an iPhone user who's interested in IM, sign up for the alpha for this:

    http://www.trillianastra.com/

    And help the Cerulean people get this great product working on the iPhone.

    Yep, and apparently ebuddy sends spam to the ppl you chat with, sometimes even when your offline.

    beejive is the bee-st :)

    Windows Live IM for Mobile Beta Works

    Windows Live IM for Mobile Beta Works

    All the Windows Live Mobile Apps Beta work fine. However, I believe you have to do a refresh to see IM message replys.

    Not that great but for IM Users I believe it would be cheaper then using SMS.

    I agree with everyone else. http://iphone.beejive.com/ To settle for something like this "eBuddy" when beejive knocks the socks the ball out of the park is simply crazy. It might sound like a funny name, but it is really the *PREMIERE* instant messaging solution on the iPhone right now. BeeJive is an A+ to everyone else's C+ and lower.

    I agree with Cleverboy. Beejive is by far the best. If only these apps had sound and vibrate functions to notify me when I get an IM when I'm not staring at my iPhone....

    I like both beejive and flickIM... but both certainly have their pros and cons

    beejive has a great buddylist, but thats it... flickIM is better in all other aspects.

    I noticed that flickim logs in faster and sends and receives messages faster then BEEJIVE on edge...

    But BEEJIVE handles multiple accounts and conversations better, not to mention way better buddylist and info...

    I use flickim only when i am on edge and want to quickly check whos on.... otherwise i will take the extra seconds to load BEEJIVE because it dominates all other IM apps i have used so far...
