MSN Question (kind of different)
Edited by Kocrachon on Feb 3, 2008 at 11:35:50 PM
So I wanted to get a decent MSN messenger that uses Data INSTEAD of SMS. And I was wondering if this one did just data
http://na.blackberry.com/eng/services/internet/im/im_wlm.jsp

I was hoping that one uses data only but if not could some one point me the right way? I use enough texts as it is. So id really like to not have to use them since I have unlimited data...

EDIT:
 Also, do the ones I download off of media net use SMS or just data?

According to the system requirements, it uses data. However, when I tried to download it to my 8310 I was told that my device is not supported and it won't let me download it.
 
From the System Requirements page;
 
Smartphones supported: BlackBerry® 7130e, BlackBerry® 7250 and BlackBerry® 8703e from Bell Mobility, BlackBerry® 8800 from T-Mobile USA

Hmm, well I am mainly looking for an MSN messenger that uses only Data and not text messeges. I see a TON of MSNs that use text and not data but I would like it the other way around, Is that possible?

You could use a program like JiveTalk. It's not free, but it's an all-in-one messaging program.

Hmm, how good is it with buddy lists and all of that? And is it pure data?

It is just like logging in to MSN messenger. It'll have all your contacts when you sign in.

edit: Yes, it is pure data.

It's a very highly rated program. I don't use it myself as I only use Yahoo Messenger. There are other chat programs available though such as:
Nimbuzz

IM+

eqo

Use the 30 day trial version of JiveTalk and you will see the price is worth it. I have only 12 days left of mine and I do plan on buying it!
