    I just came from a G1 to the iPhone. One thing I dont understand is why my IM client signs me out once I press the home button? Is there someway to recieve all the IMs and be online even when the application is closed? Something like in the G1 if you know what I am talking about.

    If you have the AIM app or something like BeeJive, you can turn on the push notifications in the settings and make it so you will get push notifications when you get an IM. You still need to make sure you change the settings in the actual app (AIM or BeeJive) to keep you signed in for up to 24 hours at a time, this is the longest, but as long as you open the app once in a 24 hour period it'll keep you logged in and receiving messages.

    You need to Jailbreak and install a program called backgrounder. However, just a warning, it will drain your battery a lot faster.

    You need an app that supports keeping you signed in when the app is closed. I know Beejive does this, and I'm sure other programs do as well.

    If you want a real IMing machine, get a Blackberry. iPhone is absolute garbage for IMing.

    My Blackberry is signed on 24/7 to 5 different IM clients via BeeJive. Rock Solid connection, runs when I'm doing anything and everything. True multi-tasking.

    100% live and 100% connected.

    IMing on my iPhone is a nightmare. Truth is iPhone fans won't realize this until they use a Blackberry. Many, many people will probably bash me on this. It's fine.
