    Surprised the phone doesn't have built in IM but I have tried a couple ebuddy and nimbuzz I think. Anyway I am looking for just a good client for yahoo messenger. I would like to be able to sign in as invisible and also have the option to switch to invisible once online. I have yet to find these features which I would think would be pretty standard.

    Any recommendations?

    Oh yea, was also looking for a program that would support webcam to a computer from the phone if that is even out there.

    I have been using Meebo and it is very good. I love the feature for IMing Yahoo and AIM friends from the same application. Interface is not bad either.

    All programs basically suck, don't know why they Yahoo wont release a Yahoo app for android, going on the site Yahoo.come and choosing messenger takes away the predictive text.... TERRIBLE

    Meebo if you have too. =]

    but also note: any IM program drinks your battery, i noticed my battery life drastically increase by actively signing out of gtalk / meebo / fring (i use to let them all idle in background NOT GOOD! haha)

    so if you dont need your IM on -- dont have it on

    be sure to officially "Sign out" if you not gonna be using it

    I use Fring. You need skype, or a Fring ID to use video chat. It doesn't work with the other clients that Fring manages.

    Thanks for the suggestions guys, Meebo seems ok. You can't sign in invisible but u can change to invisible at least. Interface is very simple which is all I really need. I tried using yahoo on fring but didn't care 2 much for it. Prob stick with Meebo for now since it is the only one I have tried that does invisible.

    SwankyDank, how would u get a stock one? Wouldn't I already have one if it was a stock version? I have heard of stock versions on other android phones but have never actually tried or seen a stock version.

    Nimbuz > Meebo.

    Also, gtalk has Push notification.

    i dont know if anyone noticed but the Yahoo Messenger (official) app for Android is a bit sluggish at times specially when switching between connections WiFi <--> 3g..or just generally sluggish..im still looking for a faster client..
