    Type of app I was looking for - like BB Messenger.
    Seems that Yahoo Messenger is the best bet, iPush*t as a close second.

    Hopefully one day Apple will bring out there own official version

    Just got disconnected from Yahoo
    Been testing it the last few days - Logged in with account A, exited the app on the iPhone (was logged in as idle). Check 2 days later by logging in from account B on my computer and shows account A offline - didn't keep me logged in for 2 weeks, only about 2 days - not as stable as suspected
    Gonna test again though and see...

    I don't think it always is able to keep you logged in for that long, 2 days is a long time anyway, I open mine up everyday so I'm always logged in.

    The description on the App Store said it could keep you logged in for up to 2 weeks though

    Yeah, and it's worked for me. I've never been logged off unless I intentionally do something to log myself off.

    Keep in mind that if you reset your iPhone or power off your iPhone, you will be disconnected.

    Could you really get disconnected if you turn your phone off? I do that like once every 2 or 3 days. Will have to test that...

    I really liked BBM when i had a blackberry. I thought it was a good idea. It would be pretty neat for iPhone to do that but i dont think AT&T would ever approve of that.

    I agree - BB Messenger is allowed on ATT so an Apple version for the iPhone should be too - doubt ATT would block it if Apple ever made their own version...

    How about Tansee iPhone Transfer SMS ?


    you can have a try!
    Sorry @yearl, think you misunderstood the topic. Not trying to backup SMS's, but trying to send free msg between iPhones (like BlackBerry Messenger)...

    Ok. found another app - it's actually brand new on the App Store. It's called Messi.im - iTunes link
    They say it's free for the first two weeks so grab it whilst you can!
    Also a free messaging app between iPhones with no "keep me logged in" time...
    I haven't tried it yet but if anyone has can you please let us know what you think of it?
    Thanx

    Ok, was testing on 2 different iPhones and both were disconnected this morning for some or other reason - assuming Yahoo flushes or resets their server every few days?

    I really don't know what to tell you at this point. I have never once been kicked off Yahoo Messenger on the iPhone without intentionally signing off or logging on to another device. I have no way to speculate as to why you're having problems.

    i don't know if its any consolation, but beejive tells you when you've been signed out.. so at least he'd be notified?

    True that, but with BeeJive you have to log in at least once a day (only keeps you online for 24hrs). Need something that keeps you logged in longer (like Yahoo) or indefinitely...

    Same here, and it sends you a message when you've been logged out too.

    Hmmm... weird, you get a msg when it logs you out? I didn't get one - maybe Yahoo just hasn't like me much this past week?

    Yeah, same here. When I sign in to Yahoo on my computer, I get a push notification on my iPhone telling me that I've been signed out because I logged onto my computer.

    Maybe you've just got bad karma because you've spent the last 5 pages of this thread trying to find a replacement for Yahoo IM.

    Ha ha - think you just hit the nail on the head - bad karma - he he

    Anyways, I found another app that could replace all my iPhone to iPhone messaging attempts - it's called MoyoTalk. They are busy working on their new release which will have push and they are hopefully releasing a BB version soon too. Will then have free iPhone to iPhone (and iPhone to BB) messaging with now "sign out" worries - can't wait!!!!!

    Thought of that but AIM only keeps you online for 24hrs. Would also like to send my dad messages this way but he won't remember to log in once a day to stay online

    Thanx though. Any other thoughts?
    hey there.. if you are still looking for an iPhone-2-iPhone chat with push which works worldwide, check out WhatsApp (disclaimer: it is my BBM-like chat app which we launched just two days ago)

    it is free. enjoy
