Free IM client launches for BlackBerry

19 Comments

If you’re looking tempted by Mundu, but remain a penny-pincher, Instango just launched, offering free support across multiple instant messaging systems, like GTalk, ICQ, AIM, MSN, Yahoo, QQ, Gadu-Gadu and Jabber. Instango also features SMS, mail and RSS access, file and picture sending, as well as a push-to-talk system. Sounds like it’s worth a shot if you’re still shopping around for that one client to handle all your chatting needs.

    Has anyone tried this yet? Is it possible to use just the IM features and none of the others? Does this use the data network like Jivetalk?

    I think so. I haven’t tried it yet but I’m about to. I was reading here http://instango.com/features.php where it indicates that you would have to send the text message from the instango program. As long as you send your text messages through your traditional texting/emailing options, you shouldn’t expect any additional charges.

    Thanks. I just need the IM feature, but didn’t want to sign up if it didn’t work.

    Created an account but it gave me errors when adding accounts. Support forums has not been great and no way to delete account manually. Just emailed them to ask how. Let’s see how long it takes.

    This program has two major problems:

    1. It kills the battery life of my 8310.

    2. This program opens every time I try to record a video or download a video off the web. It is very weird. I have to click “OK” in the program in order to accept video downloads and recordings. WTF does instango have to do with videos?
