iPhone to iPhone messages with push?
Did a bit of a search but can't seem to find anything...
I'm looking for an app that allows free communication (text) between iPhones. Obviously want the app to have push as well so as to notify the other user that they have a message.
I found Telegram by Polar Bear Farm here which looks really really awesome but I'd like something that does text instead.

Wow!! Yahoo Messenger on the iPhone is AWESOME!!!! Waaaay prettier than AIM. Seems to be quite stable too. Now just got to load it on my dad's phone. Gonna get all my friends with iPhones to load it too :-)
We now have our own alternative to the good old days of BlackBerry Messenger

So let me get this straight - you sign up and get an @textfree.us account, then your friends sends you a message (within textfree) to your @textfree.us account and you receive it in your copy of textfree?
I read the reviews and apparently some people say it takes an hour or two to receive their messages? Would it be better to then rather get the pay version?

Yahoo seems to be the best option still. Come to think of it, I can chat with friends on BBs too that way - so it's free messaging between iPhones and BBs
@Behshad, have you had any random disconnects from Yahoo or does it seem stable?

Very stable indeed.
I like the fact that my buddies in Sweden can send me a msg using yahoo on their iPhone or even pc.
I know that it may go into idle mode as my status. But they know their messages pops up like a text message on my screen even when in sleep mode.
This helps also when we want to skype eachother since skype doesn't have push.
Now if the could add voice&video chat to yahoo messenger for the next iPhone

Yea, Yahoo Messenger is awesome, mine has been staying connected until I sign onto YM on my pc, and it's very very stable, never had one problem, and you can send pics too!
In fact, every Yahoo app is top notch, the Yahoo Music app is the most stable and highest quality music player I've tried out of many.
