    why not just use any of the instant messanger programs, yahoo, aim, etc. I'm a former BB user and I had yahoo IM on my phone.

    I'm not sure of a way to get the Eris to communicate with the blackberry messenger program.

    my wife has a bb and i have an eris. we chat everyday, i use my stock messenger and she uses her sms and mms text messenger. it is different than the bbm stuff. we have no problems.
    when we want to chat, we use yahoo. but there is no sense in using yahoo really when we can text.

    I'm sure the reason why he doesn't want to use text messages is for long distance fees. There is no such thing as long distance over the internet.

    But anyhow I thought there was a Google Talk application on Blackberries? There was one on my Blackberry Pearl Flip. And its obviously on Android. So tell your Blackberry friend to make a Gmail account and use Google Talk to chat with you.

    Is Google Voice available on BB?

    And with BBM, you can talk to anyone in the world with a BBM? So is it using the data plan, and really just another client like AIM and Yahoo!?

    Guys, instant messaging is so last decade. I dunno what it is now, but most of my friends are never on aim. I have gone from about 50 people on AIM at a given time in freshman year in high school, to maybe 14 that are on because their phones are linked to it and are always online as a result.

    Bb has Google,aim, yahoo. Have to use one of those no way to use bbm on Android.
    There is a Google voice app for Bb but not as well integrated as Android.

    If you can find me a txt program than will allow me to swipe back and forth between conversations I'll give you a big hug!

    g-talk is pretty close and some things work even better than bbm, but I still miss it :(

    I have an Eris and my wife has a blackberry, we use google talk for all our quick texting. It's free and works great.
