    Default A chat app that runs in the background for iPhone 3G?
    Is there any current and regularly-updated app for iPhone 3G which runs in the background? There doesn't seem to be any point in running AIM if you have to keep it active to receive IMs.

    Well once MobileChat gets fixed, which will be 3.1, it should have some kind of push notification until Apple releases the official push...

    Once it gets fixed... when Apple releases the official push. Seems like a bit of a wait.

    Any Installer/Cydia apps that'll do this reliably right now? <_<

    Well I havent jailbroken 2.x, but before that, there was Apollo, Palringo, and MobileChat. MobileChat's staff now includes the developer of Apollo, so they are done, and Palringo is in the App Store, so Im pretty sure it is either App Store or nothing...

    Doesn;t run in the background but it has push... which is not yet supported by apple so the short answer is not yet.

    I once prayed to God for an iPhone, but quickly found out He didn't work that way...so I stole an iPhone and prayed for His forgiveness.
