    Well for instant messaging, go for ebuddy, as you can just use your msn/yahoo/Facebook/aim login

    But those rely on other people downloading those apps too on their devices, ebuddy uses existing IM logins, which already have your friends on them....

    +1 whatsapp

    Used to use ping but messages wouldn't go through, plus you had to pay for upgrades (like photos)

    i still maintain that ebuddy is better for IM as its free and you don't have to faff about making a new login and you have all your friends on it already.

    I use TextFree, it gives you a different phone number just for text (don't think calls would work, at least I haven't tried yet!) and for me it sends messages real quick

    This. TEXTFREE works perfect because it gives me a phone number with a semi-local area code.

    If someone calls your TEXTFREE number, I'm pretty sure the app let's you know you've received a missed call.

    whatsapp hands down.

    And IMO one of the best designed iPhone apps all around. Feels very solid and the UI is super streamlined. oh, and it works.
