    I'm a huge beejive fan, never had any problems with it at all.

    I first used beejive when they released the web app for the iPhone

    but I've been using the native client for about a month now. It is a little pricey, but it has tons of features, and a great UI

    haven't tried IM+ but I own Beejive and it's great. Much better than mobilecrap.

    I'd pick BeeJive. It's definitely the most full-featured and well functioning

    If you have enough money, go buy Beejive, you'll never regret it.

    If you don't have enough money, go save first then buy Beejive ;)

    Beejive is the best but not worth $15.99 The only reason I have it is because i got it for free (Jailbroken)

    Not worth 15 bucks? Actually you are just cheap. 15 bucks is 3 beers at the bar.

    For some people $15.00 is a case of Pearl Light in the Grandma's basement.

    I have both and IM+ is quite respectable in itself. I like both applications quite a bit.

    I use Beejive now because that is what I bought first and have been using. I don't think I could recommend one program over the other as they are both very feature complete, but I have to come back to Beejive being what I use on a day to day basis.

    BeeJive, even though I think it is overpriced.

    Beejive hands down. I've used both and Beejive is just more reliable.

    For the amount I use the app (every day), it's worth the $.

    It always stays connected when I'm not in the app (for the time frame I set in the settings) so when I go back the messages are there that were sent while I wasnt in the app. I use my push email to get notifications of msgs and it's worked great.

    Beejive; I was hesitant to buy something that I never used, but it's the most reliable app ever. And since version 2.0, it's a no-brainer.

    And don't forget that the money that you're paying is also used to maintain servers that keeps you log in for 24 hours.

    beejive hands down.

    seems a bit pricy, but it's the best IM client for iPhone.

    You should give Palringo a try.
    Its free. I have been using Beejive since it is out. Palringo seems on par with Beejive.. just that you cant send your display picture...

    Not even in the same league. Palringo makes you sign up for their service before you can even use your AIM/MSN etc... accounts!

    Screw that!!!

    BeeJive is unmatched and you wont regret the purchase.
