Someone asked me today how an iPhone user could IM (instant message) using Yahoo IM or a different service, instead of SMS. The only way I’m aware of doing this now is using the free BeeJive JiveTalk Mobile website for iPhone. To use and setup the free service, on an iPhone or iPod Touch visit the following site:http://iphone.beejive.comThat website will not actually work in a “regular” computer web browser, but should work fine on an iPhone or iPod Touch. When Apple releases the iPhone developer’s kit in February (as announced last year) I expect we’ll see a bunch of new applications for the iPhone and iPod Touch, most likely including different IM clients.Does anyone else know of a different website or way to “do IM” on an iPhone?[tags]iphone, im, ipodtouch, ipod, touch, instantmessage, beejive[/tags]
