    Now that my Verichat license is gone and Nokia no longer updates that program, what are my AIM options?

    In particular, I really liked the SMS option as it kept the 700p from draining its battery even faster.

    Are there any AIM clients for the 700p that can use SMS for some or all of its messaging?

    AIM forwarding works great for me. I get all my im's sent to my phone as sms texts when I'm not using an AIM client. And you can reply seemlessly. Works well with threaded sms.

    A solid free AIM client for Palm with background operation:

    Only thing that gets me is the endless-repeating-vibrate bug that crops up occasionally.

    I've used Causerie, but I've found it to be slower and less reliable than verichat. I really miss Verichat.

    I use Toccer as well. Pretty basic, but I've had no problems with it.

    When you mean "background operation" does this mean SMS? If it's data, what happens if data is disconnected. I'm assuming this way will eat up battery.

    I'm using Chatopus. It does AIM, Yahoo, ICQ, MSN, GoogleTalk, & Jabber. Although it uses data instead of SMS it doesn't drain the battery as bad as Toccer.

    Only downside is the learning curve to set it up. If you're familiar with Jabber clients it won't be a problem.

    Yes, I use Verichat a lot. Much more than SMS.

    I was fortunate and had just re-upped my subscription before they decided to close their doors. I can still use the app. so I guess they're going to leave their servers open until all service subscriptions are up rather than refund and shut down.

    Has anyone here played around with Muundu? I really enjoy its interface a lot. the only thing is it hasn't been updated in quite a while. Something I'd like to see in it are timestamped messages.

    Hi, everyone. First post here. I was looking for this myself because I prefer the non-data-connected method and here's what I found.

    No additional software is needed to use AOL over SMS. Start here:

    http://mobile.aol.com/

    There are two ways to use AIM vis SMS. The first is to just have your IMs forwarded to your phone when you're not online with your computer. You can reply and carry on a chat.

    The second is to actually "sign on" using SMS. You'll get a message (or several) with the buddies that are online and you can initiate the chat with them.

    It's all explained in the link above. If you have any questions, I played around with it a little to get it going so I might be able to help.

    BTW, I'm on Cingular, but it looks like the major carriers are supported.

    I just finished giving Muundu a try. The program was pretty nice but I started having problems with sporadic resets as soon as I started using it. This stopped as soon as I quit using it and went back to chatopus. Other than the resets the program was nice. The two things I didn't like about it were the waste of screen real-estate. It'd be nice if they removed the border to better utilize the screen. Second, some functions required the use of the stylus. It'd be nice if the 5way could do everything.
