Hey everybody, I was wondering what are current chating options for our N900.
I use facebook chat through opera and facebook java app.
I used Yappari when it was still working.
Now I want to know if there is any good alternative that i can use.
Like if I'm offline, that I still get the messages when I get back online. I had problems with skype on my N900, it was only showing me messages that I typed/recieved while on my N900.

Any alternatives are welcome

So what seems to be the problem? Yes, skype have (Or at least had) online history. But, since I can remember there was always something wrong. Not only on n900. It looks like skype saves only part of messages. And this is not all. When you are online and the person who you chatting to is not, there is high possibility that mentioned receiver will never get you msg. Or, this is better, the receiver will get you message straight without notifying or so.

Enough options on N900 to have a 'chat'. I am using email, sms texting and Telegram. The first two probably the most future proof and more importantly everyone is able to use those without any effort.

I've noticed not many people like to install an app just to chat with the only user in their group of peers that isn't able to use whatsapp. Even installing an easy to install and pretty widespread app like Telegram is usually too much trouble. Still I regularly use it with a couple of friends/family.

Haven' t investigated but I am sure there are other options as well on the platform. Pidgin has some plugins that might work (eg AIM, ICQ, MSN, XMMP)
Probably more options as well if you use Easy Debian. But as mentioned before, you need to convince your peers to install the same program.
