    They seem really similar. Anyone used both and know the difference?

    Since they use data plan, they do not use your texts. Does that count for incoming messages as well? Also, can you use PIN messeges on either?

    There's a thread on a problem with IM+...apparently it will occasionally nuke a Berry randomly. Haven't tried Jivetalk.

    Jivetalk is awesome, too bad it isn't free. I really enjoyed my trial though

    Do you not feel that the cost is reasonable for a quality program?

    Can't say anything for IM+ other than it's **** expensive and now they lowered their prices...Ha I've been using JiveTalk and I love it since it's data usage both ways free after you buy the application.

    I like free, but do not mind paying a fee for unlimited chatting. And if its incoming chat too than thats even better.

    I do feel that a quality program is worth spending money on, however, it is just as easy for me to utilize the extra money I pay for unlimited text messaging as the people I usually text are the same people I chat with on AIM... personal opinion.

    To re-clarify for those like sunkast who might be confused by the motive of my post, Jivetalk > IM+. If you love chatting with people on your phone, I would buy Jivetalk before I would buy IM+ as I have tried them both.

    I've tried both and went with JiveTalk. It was much easier to work with (for me).

    JiveTalk all the way. I like the fact that it's stable and it doesn't eat the battery up at all.

    i agree with the jivetalk votes, to the person who said they're going to wait until the trial is over before purchasing it, there's no need! the license is permanent for the device, not yearly. i used it for 20 minutes and bought a multi-device license immediately.

    For the love of god, pick Jivetalk!!

    I used both and JT just seemed more intuitive. Plus, I know it's not always a top priority, but the UI was much prettier than IM+. It makes people look twice at my phone when I'm using it in public.
