No. The only way to we'll have a "real" im app is if Sprint or a certified developer puts one out. Don't look for it to happen anytime soon.

Nimbuzz works, you just can't keep it running in the background.

I should have clariified... what I meant by a "real" im app is one that runs in the background. The Instinct doesn't have one yet, and there is no word on whether we ever will or not. For all we know one may have been made for the Developers Contest, but who knows if we'll ever see ANYTHING out of that.

So I was running Gizmo5 and I got two texts messages so I selected them to read and when it kicked me out of Gizmo and went to the texts. It completely locked the phone up and had to take out the battery to reset it. Yeah I guess that is a bad idea when you are in instant messenger. lol

I don't know what you are doing wrong. My son & I both have instinct phones & both use Gizmo5 to IM with no problem at all.
