    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.

    try IM+lite..

    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
