    I did a search and found some old (4-11 months old) threads but I'm hoping there's been some updates.

    I just decided to give Google Talk a whirl and it looks great, but the first account I added to my phone isn't the account I primarily use (which has the majority of my contacts). Is there a way to switch accounts in Google Talk so I have all the contacts from my main account?

    If not (that'd be something they need to address in a GTalk update) is there an app that will allow me to use the other?

    Trillian, got it. So no way to swap accounts short of wiping my phone?

    I suppose I should clarify, Trillian Beta is free on Android for now. Once it goes off beta and into "production" it will not be free, though it's only ~$5 for other platforms (iPhone, BB) and worth it IMO so Android should be the same. I use Trillian on my PC and plan on buying once it's available.
