    You're right. So far it doesn't exist. If they made one I'd consider putting it back in the berry.

    it deffinitly would be cool. i have no clue how to make an app so i would not be the one to do it i just did not know if it has been thought about. i think it would be something that a lot of people would use. i have the google talk on my phone and i use that to talk to some people

    NimBuzz has Facebook chat built into its IM application. The only issue I have found with it is if you have a large number of friends, it can lock up the application (my 600+ friend list kills Nimbuzz on my BB).

    Palringo just added Facebook Chat to their PC application. Hopefully, FBC will be added to their BB application soon.

    JiveTalk is supposed to be working on adding FBC to their interace soon.

    So, for now, Nimbuzz is about the only option, although it looks like other IM applications will have FBC soon.

    Update: Palringo just released an update (0.83) and it now supports Facebook Chat.

    I updated PR this afternoon and now have my Facebook contacts listed.

    Palringo uses data, just like the other IM applications.

    The kewl thing about Palringo is it can send voice messages between Palringo contacts. The only downside I have found so far is a slightly more noticeable lag between sending and receiving IMs.

    Thanks xopher. Just downloaded palringo. Seems somewhat faster than nimbuzz on my pearl. It just doesn't have contact photos. I'll take the speed.

    For Palringo, go to Palringo Mobile Site to get the BB version.

    Palringo is pretty basic in features compared to others. It even has a little bit of a lag time when sending and receiving messages. At least is has FBC.

    I haven't tried eBuddy. It would be another one to consider.

    That pretty neat, but I don't think I should download it. If people on facebook wanna contact me they should either A. have my cell phone number or B. Get a bb!
