2. IM+ for BlackBerry Devices
While I prefer the Interface found on Beejive, I really like the features offered on IM+. Specifically the ability to send International SMS messages for as little as 5 cents. Just like Beejive the IM+ program features support for AIM®/iChat, MSN®/Windows Live™ Messenger, Yahoo!®, ICQ®, Jabber®, Google Talk™ and MySpaceIM in one client. The cost for IM+ is a high $49.95 for a lifetime license, users do however receive free lifetime upgrades and the program supports nice languages which include English, Dutch, French, German, Greek, Italian, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish.
Users can also send files to their friends while taking advantage of their IM programs most popular features such as Add, Delete and Block users, Group Chats, and Emoticons, among many other popular features. If you're looking for a more long term solution with room for future fadvanced features at no additional cost then i'd suggest taking a closer look at IM+ for Blackberry.
