Hey guys I just came aboard and I love this site.:laugh2::laugh2::laugh2:
I have a quick question about sms and i.m.

I would rather use an i.m. program and save some cash instead of buying more text messages. I know that at$t charges for sms but is there an i.m.
program on iPhone that will allow me to send it as data so that I don't incur charges as sms text messages.
I heard that AIM still counts as text messaging..

Please help, you guys are awesome..

Any of the apps (Like ApolloIM) will use SMS and cost you. If you go web based like http://iPhone.beejive.com then it counts as data.

you can input phone numbers as "buddies" on AIM those numbers will show up to act just like a screen name. you can txt them, and they can txt u back. free. of course u need your apolloIM or mobilechat to get on the AIM service.

No you don't. Look up AIM-to-SMS in google. AIM can be done from just about any cell equipped to do SMS, and through SMS. I use it every single day.

Only good if you have unlimited texts though.
