As a former BB user, I previously used the google talk app all of the time, it is one of the biggest things I miss. I know the iPhone has a google talk web app, but you have to keep it open in order for it to function, as soon as you go back to the home screen or switch apps, it closes. I really hope Apple gives us background notification in 2.1.

Or you could get the FREE WhatsApp Messenger which allows free texting between iPhone users, but you better hurry. The devs said they might start charging for it soon.
I have it and it works great. Also in the future I think they said the Blackberry and iPhone versions will communicate together.

Every now and then an app strikes me as being gold, and I have to spread the word. First it was SimplyTweet, then it was Words With Friends (thanks to Corrina) and now it's WhatsApp Messenger.
This should be a standard app on the iPhone, like the way Flurry is standard in the screen savers now.

That was one of the hardest things to give up with my BB was the messenger. But now I just text a lot more than use BB messenger. I wish that there was a live messenger, but alas no for the iPhone. I have seen the other IM applications but it isn't a push notification. Unless the application is on, your status will be considered off-line.
