    I use a program called Nimbuzz and it seems to work well and allows you to connect to both YM and AIM at the same time.

    You can get a free AIM app. It seems to work fine on mine.

    Not to hijack - but does anyone know of a good Adium-type IM app? One that will allow you to add multiple accounts, including MSN?

    Nimbuzz allows you to sign into 1 of each type of IM client including MSN, AIM, Yahoo, Skype, and more

    Will Nimbuzz recognize my .mac address for AIM? It keeps rejecting it.

    Try "fring" app
    it allows you to access all like skype,AIM,icq and almost all others with one user
    So u create a account on fring and then you can access all other accounts like above... Its free

    hi. i have registered with Nimbuzz then activated my email. What's the next thing for me to do? Do I need to open the Nimbuzz website using Safari then log-in there?

    Thanks alot to your idea...

    hi. i used Safari. but the problem is, I can't log in. it appeared that I need to download Adobe Flash Player. I tried downloading it but there was prompt that says Safari cannot download.

    How am I going to do with that?

    Thanks alot.
