I just tried out the Mobile IM client, for AOL, MSN and Yahoo, that is available through Get It Now. It is interesting, but I don't know if I would use it. It pretty much just sets up a IM to text message proxy. So once set up, it forwards IM messages to the phone with text messages, so the phone is not always using air time when using Mobile IM.
I did noticed one problem. There is not a way in the UI for Mobile IM to disconnect from the IM services. What you have to do is to connect to the IM services from a computer. This will cause the IM session to be closed.
I don't see using this myself. I don't want to be connected that much.
