    Hi, does anyone know of free chat apps for chatting between BB's and android phones. I have tried PING, but this seems to be very hit and miss along with Whatsupp. Are there anyothers out there.........? Thanks in advance.

    I use GoogleTalk for chatting with Android friends. I just find it easier because anyone who has an Android phone probably has it already installed, and if they don't they definitely have a gmail address.

    I don't get into many of the other IM apps that are available out there. It's just too hard to keep up with them, and it's a pain always trying to get friends to install new apps when the old way works just fine.

    I've used Live Profile on Android, BlackBerry and iphone. It's great.

    Live Profile uses data. So if both parties have a data plan, it uses that and not text plan.

    I'm still looking for a cross-border talking experience for Blackberry to Android -Canada/US mostly, but have friends around the world. GoogleTalk isn't free outside the US, unless I am mistaken?

    Gtalk uses data, not voice, so there should not be any additional charges to use it. BlackBerry - Google Talk

    I have in the past used AOL Instant Messenger to text cross platform, and cross border. It's lame, but there is an app for all devices out there, and it works. Is it perfect? No. But it works.

    Google talk has been replaced by Hangouts. Google talk app hangs on download and will not install now on PB. Just found this out this afternoon. Might just be me, but is a hitch.
