JonnyChat is a free AOL IM (AIM) client that works well on Boost phones. It’s fast loading, has a responsive interface and messages arrive instantly. All the keys are mapped correctly except the OK key, use the Call key as OK.

The phone vibrates when you get a new IM and when a buddy logs if the app is running in the foreground. Hat tip to Trinitario for finding this.

    • Mike M, Be sure to enter your phone number as 10 digits, no spaces, dashes and no leading “1”. Also if your Boost Account is new, it can take up to 3 days before downloads satart to work.
