    Default free IM apps

    Hey guys,

    I just got my iphone4 and I'm sorry if this has been asked a million times here. Searching just didnt get me the intended results.

    I was wondering what is a good FREE IM app that can integrate yahoo IM, Google talk and AIM into one app. I have tried 'fring' but I'm not a big fan of it. I cant even figure out how to set my status as "away" on that thing. Either way I'm not a big fan of the fring interface anyways.

    I have separate apps for yahoo, AIM etc but I dont want to have separate apps.

    Thanks in advance

    "Meebo" in the App Store is what I use and is very reliable.

    The iAds turned me off of Meebo, although I liked the app itself. Used IMO for a while but didn't feel like it had me online all the time, which is the point of using IM on your phone right? I missed IM's all the time with IMO.

    BeeJive paid app is the best IMO.

    I used to use Meebo, but the iAds were driving me crazy. I decided to invest and got IM+ (especially since it has skype chat support) and it ROCKS.
