I've tried Flick, Meebo, eBuddy, BeeJive, and now Mundu. So far I'm liking Flick the most because of its SMS alerts, but I also like eBuddy's interface. Meebo is prob in #2 place.

Which one do you guys prefer?

at my job all of those are blocked, so i use radius im (radiusim.com) and i actually love it. it's still alpha, but i've been using it the whole summer without a hitch.

BeeJive is my favorite so far, but I haven't tried Meebo's iPhone specific versioin yet. I'll likely get to that in the next few days, but BeeJive does basically everything I want it to do.

Ive been using FlickIM but i just looked at meebos iphone version, and i am somewhat impressed with that one as well. Beejive isnt bad, a bit slow. The rest im not huge fans of.

beejive gets my vote since they now have a settings you can change. Tried meebos today and it wasn't that bad. Cant wait for a native app though.

pretty much tried them all and beejive seems to be the most mature. I wish there was a way to enable a sound notification when you get a message. Also a way to just stay logged in when your phone is off would be really nice.

Flick solves a lot of those issues. It seems to stay connected better to their server (Meebo disconnects you each time you leave the current window), and I can get SMS notifications of an IM if I'm doing something else on the phone. Flick just reconnects and gives you the IMs you missed while you were away.

ill have to give it another try. I have a bunch of friends on MSN so I kinda steered away from it
