    1. There is no facebook chat for Blackberry. Many of us feel the same way you do about wanting it.

    2. Plazmic updates were released for the 9630 a few weeks after the phone dropped. The phone comes with a stock theme. You can download and install any theme you want, there's thousands out there now.

    If the FB app had chat, it would eat too much battery and memory...

    SD is probably correct. Unfortunately.....that's not a good excuse. Someone could easily say "well, the iPhone's battery and the Android's battery can handle it!"

    Right, there lies one problem. The Facebook for Iphone app: Made by Facebook.

    The Facebook for Blackberry app: Made by RIM

    There is still bugs with Plazmic, developers are waiting on a official release, not a patch like they previously received...

    I have a couple that work just fine for me, they were made from scratch, not ported over to allow use for a different device...

    Right, they can't skin those until they get an official release. Many have the same complaint as you, including me. RIM needs to hurry up...

    Palringo (Free)
    Numbuzz (Free)
    IM+ ($)

    Both pay versions even support push notifications to help with batery drain.
