Provided you use Google Talk, GoTalkMobile is one of the best IM apps I’ve seen for iDEN phones. Nothing fancy, just a  fast loading, no  frills GoogleTalk IM app with all keys mapped correctly.

You can set up GoTalkMobile to notify you with a beep or vibe whenever messages arrive, friends come online or new Gmail email is received. You can’t actually see new email in GoTalkMobile, but it tells you how many unread emails you have.

The only downside to this app is that it will not notify you when the app is suspended or the phone’s flip is closed, but none of the other IM apps do either on iDEN phones.

Thanks to Kim for finding this app.

    I sent GoTalkMobile to my phone again instead of re-downloading. Unbelievable, it worked like a charm. Thanks once again!

    How do I change out of predictive text , on my i450?

    I have loaded this app (twice) it runs, connects, but never logs in. I have checked and retyped name and password. I can use Boost Email + IM succesfully, but it is slow and bloated (does more than Gtalk). I have used both settings in connection (socket and http for wap). My i776 is needing help on this one please.

    I have an app like this only that mine lets me read new e-mail but this is a little faster than mine
