    Default Messaging between BB and android

    Hi,

    Thinking of getting an android phone but my girlfriend has a Blackberry, is there a way to message between those phones (a service like bbm)?

    Thanks

    I use Google Talk to talk to those I know who have Android. It's not BBM, but it works well.

    LOL. I don't see how people think that BBM is the only way to communicate to people. For those of us not in a blackberry cocoon, we use stuff like AIM, Gtalk, YIM, MSN messenger. For personal use, these are just as good as BBM especially if you get a good program like Beejive that has all the clients and good functionality. And get this, you can even chat with facebook friends!! WOW.

    its free, does all those and skype chat too, and saves battery compared to beejive.

    Congrats on the new phone & IM client. GTalk works great; I'm sure your Desire does too.

    I used bb a long time, and I am now more accustomed to the android system, besides, I have all my people on Gtalk now. I think both platforms do an excellent job, and it just boils down to a personal preference. To say one is WAY better than the other wouldn't be taking in to account the full spectrum of either phone.

    I'm on a similar boat. Just got my Desire. Been using GTalk, and the one thing I wish it had was the ability to send photos
