    I'm trying to find a messenger app (or apps) that supports at a minimum AIM and Yahoo that *IS* SMS-based. Everything I can find on the app market is data based, and the lackluster battery life on my new Droid Incredible means I can't have an always-open data connection. I do, however, have an unlimited text messaging plan, so incurring SMS charges is precisely zero concern of mine.

    Yes, I have a auto task killer. Yes, I know about eBuddy and its power-saving feature, but I hate the fact that messages might have an unacceptably-long 15-minute delay.

    Does this exist? Is anyone developing something like this?

    If it makes a difference, I'm running on Verizon.

    All I know is that Aim has a forwarding feature which allows you to forward ims you receive to your phone when offline, allowing you to respond.

    Not sure bout Yahoo, however.
