    for a few years now, i've used AIM for Palm downloaded from the AOL UK site, as it was free.

    it seems silly to me to have to pay for AIM, since it's free to nearly everyone that uses it. apparently though, AOL has closed that loophole, and that version no longer works.

    Is anyone aware of any loopholes for AIM that may exist, i.e. any other free versions?

    thanks,

    Rather than try to find loopholes, just suck it up and buy Chatter or some other IM program. You'll probably spend more time finding a free version that doesn't work as well. Just my opinion.

    Rather than using a piece of software that costs $$$, why not first try http://www.imforwards.com. I've been using their service since I got my Treo, and I've found it pretty decent for the light-duty messaging I do.

    If you're a heavy-duty IM user, though, you might be best served by purchasing a solid commercial multi-IM platform for your Treo.

    For me, though... imforwards.com does the job.

    What am I doing wrong? I can install it and "login",but it does not pull my buddy list off the server and if I try to send a msg to user I know is online, is tells me that the user is unavailable. Any ideas? Have any of you had to tweak this program to make it work?

    I just downloaded it. It works, but it's kind of quirky. It doesn't show everyone on my buddy list that I know is currently logged on and it doesn't clear the message after it has been sent so I have to delete it before sending another. Strange, but FREE! :-)

    Yuck! That aim app is just plain lame. You guys should try verichat or chatter and if you have a problem paying for either one, well chatter is worth it since its the only email app that has true push email and verichat's price I will agree, is a bit insane but, I hope you resourceful people will figure out there's always ways around that.

    Can you shoot me an e-mail at makinbank@______hotmail.com please? I had a couple questions about AIM.
