Geeking Out: SMS and IM for Mobile Phones

I’ve been geeking out on my Treo again lately… thanks in part to Jenith and Lainie out-geeking me with their Treos on Friday night, but mostly because I just bought Eva a T-Mobile Wing for her birthday. She’s got always-on AIM on there, so I decided to set it up on my phone too. Along the way I found this cool way to send email as an SMS to a mobile phone.

Incidentally, in the end I settled on the (trial) version if IM+ for my mobile AIM needs. I may pay for it soon. Anyone else have any suggestions?

In any case, I love that I can finally IM Eva from my desk to her phone! And it’s equally cool that I can finally get IMs when away from my computer. :D

    I’ve used Mundu on my palm lifedrive. ( http://messenger.mundu.com/ ). It looks like it’s cheaper than IM+. I never did pay for it though because I don’t use it often enough and then I got an EnV from Verizon. My cell phone plan is so old that I have unlimited text messages so I just use IM on there and don’t have to pay anything extra. Mundu has a 5 day free trial. You might want to try it out when your other trial period is over and see which you like better.

    Thanks, J.D. I’m still happily using IM+ and haven’t had to pay… yet. It does seem to have made my phone considerably less stable, though. I’ve had a lot more restarts lately. Of course, that could be the new bluetooth headset, too.

    I read similar article also named Geeking Out: SMS and IM for Mobile Phones, and it was completely different. Personally, I agree with you more, because this article makes a little bit more sense for me
