    Does anyone know of a good instant messaging service that will work on both a HTC Desire and a Blackberry? This week I finally upgraded from a BB 8900 to a Desire. My girlfriend still has a BB though and while we used to use BB's IM which was great, that obviously isn't an option now. Any suggestions?

    Think I'd be tempted to change the Blackberry end to use a messenger service that's a little less proprietary.

    I've got Trillian on my Blackberry and it connects to MSN / ICQ / AOL / Gmail / everything else. There's about a thousand IM apps on Android that connect to some / all of these services.

    (There may well be other options on the Blackberry too; I only used Trillian cos I've used it on the PC since the late Jurassic.)

    I have tried WhatsApp and KiK messenger (between a blackberry and a desire) and found KiK to be faster and more reliable, at least as far as my own anecdotal evidence is concerned. Both act like BBM in that they tell you when a message has been recieved, and when it has been read, but WhatsApp is only free for a trial period on the blackberry, and KiK is free.
