Blackberry chat tool with other people using other device like PC or iPhone

Is any of the chat tool in the link will allow blackberry user to add people on their list, people who are using the same chat service but in other device such as home computer or iPhone....etc. Or it's all within the blackberry user only? Thanks!

Welcome to RIM's BlackBerry Support Community Forums.

You've posted a message in the Forum Feedback and Ideas board / topic. If you're looking for assistance on something with your BlackBerry handheld you'd be best posting in a more appropriate section such as the General BlackBerry Smartphone Functions and Features.

 

That said, you could use an IM program like AIM for BlackBerry or something like beejive im (which is what I personally use)

Re: Blackberry chat tool with other people using other device like PC or iPhone

Hi, so all the listed blackberry chat fuction are only for people using blackberry right?

If want to chat with people with other device like computer, will have to download program like beejive or webmessager.

Pls correct me if I understand this wrong. Thanks!!

Re: Blackberry chat tool with other people using other device like PC or iPhone

Your question is not clear, but:

 

BlackBerry Messenger will only chat with other BBM applications on a BB.

 

JiveTalk (www.beejive.com) will connect you with almost all chat clients (AIM, AOL, Yahoo, ICQ, GTalk, etc).

Re: Blackberry chat tool with other people using other device like PC or iPhone

if you use ICQ for blackberry, you can talk to all people using the ICQ protocol, whether they use Blackberry, ICQ or any other IM client that does ICQ (like Trilian or Miranda IM or PSI).

same for MSN or AIM or Y!M.
