    Also

    Many people have posted that AIM, Yahoo, et al, work fine on this blackberry on boost.

    I have asked how exactly, but have not gotten a response. I assume they have gotten these clients to work.

    ok when i "searched" for aim boost, the first 4 say you need to use beejive, just like post number 1 in the workarounds..... the 5th poster says she got it to work, why dont you PM her and ask her how.

    and as for this....

    boostberry workaround.... post 1

    search for aim boost.... 9 links
    i see you did not read the next post.....

    I think I did not post my question correctly I am actually looking for the application for Aim to download it ota.

    here is what post 1 says in the workarounds.....

    Text Messaging, SMS and Chat:
    There are two options. One is Instango instango.com - Mobile Instant Messaging an all in one messenger and SMS client. And then there is Beejive Beejive - instant messaging anywhere. Just a IM client. I would use instango for this but it runs the battery down very quickly and Beejive seems to do a better job at keeping my battery life.

    If you use a program called Beejive. It doesn't cost money to receive a text or SMS but it also has instant messaging which is free and easy to use. It will talk to Google Talk, AIM, MSN, Facebook, MySpace, Yahoo and Jabber clients. I chat on it all the time. Works great with wifi or not.

    So what I did was I signed up for the instango service and got the email address they provide for free. I then used Beejive to sign into the instango jabber server. Then I set up the forwarding to the email address and when I get a text it pops right up to my Beejive IM. As for sending messages it doesn't. But I just go to Google Voice and send free Text messages from there

    the 3 links you provided are NOT BOOST!!!!

    the first says......

    Good Morning Crackheads........Here are a list of Blackberry apps that require ServiceBooks/Blackberry Internet service to function properly
    boost does not supply service books or BIS

    second link.....

    They both push the AIM Autosport team to be faster on the track.

    The Mike BlackBerry Curve 8350i lets you instantly connect to your crew with Direct Connect« and send emails with a full QWERTY keyboard. Add to that Integrated GPS, a 2 mega pixel camera, and built-in Wi-Fi, and you’ve got a smartphone that never quits.

    Your very own pit crew is optional.

    See the Mike BlackBerry Curve 8350i and AIM Autosport in action.

    TELUS
    mike/telus is a service provider in canada

    the third....

    the OP (post number 1) is on nextel. i

    i even searched all 3 links and none of them have to word boost in them

    Wow


    Look just cause you did not know how to do it you do not have to jump all over me. Most of the links had the work boost and AIM. Also a few of the people in those threads clearly said they had boost and AIM... so yes it must work.


    Just so other people do know how to do it. I downloaded Instango. It installed easily. Then I was able to log on with out any problems. Then all you have to do as add AIM. Yahoo IM also worked well.

    If you have any questions please PM me.

    i did not mean to come off as "jumping all over you". i just wanted to state that the links you gave do not say boost in them at all, and i was tring to explain (simply) that they were all differnt then what you were asking for.

    im sorry for sounding harsh.

    i am glad you got it working though... happy boosting
