I use MSN...seems pretty universal.

I anyone using Skype? Not exactly instant messaging but close enough I suppose...does anyone know if it's available in North America? It's like a free voice-over-internet-protocol system...

A buddy of mine in the UK and one in Sweden/Germany use it...they can call anyone, anywhere over the internet for free...well, free expect for the cost of their internet connection.

Crazy savings on long distance

Serious?! How do they charge? I think the software's free no? Is it just like a phone company - per call or per minute or something?

AIM - mostly for work, but if you're ever on and want to chat, I'm Tavallai

I just tried Skype, trying something new for work.. Looks pretty cool. I think they only charge for calls that go to physical phone lines - they call it SkypeOut. It's $.17/min for "standard" calling areas, and more elsewhere. I dunno, I think the computer-to-computer thing is just fine. Otherwise, I'll use the free long distance minutes I have from T-Mobile.

^^^ Yeah, comp to comp it's free. At least it has been everytime I've used it to talk to family (including fam overseas). You can instant message too.

I don't really use any much.. I think I use AIM though? Maybe MSN? Not sure.

I use MSM and AIM,

I've had a hotmail account for about 7 years now, which was great for using messinger when i was living in america and talking to people back in Ireland.

I only got my AIM account since i moved back to Ireland and aol is my internet provider, so i use it to chat to people i knew in america that have aol,plus i chat to people i've met though tpunk

MSN girl here. MSN is great for free long distance conversations. I talk to people in Australia all the time. I had AIM for a while, but no one I knew used it, so I stopped using it.
