    I have a 3gs iphone.
    My son has a new pre and a friend has a BB...
    question,
    is there a IM app that works easy without jailbreaking the phone. Is there one in the app store that will stay active to receive messages when phone goes to sleep???

    Thanks

    I downloaded IM+ lite and it works ok but goes off..

    as of now iphone does not support any apps running in the background even when it is in sleep mode. so the answer to your question is ...NO
    but soon there maybe a software upgrade, which may run apps in the background.
