    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.
