Sorry but I deleted a couple of posts from here.

They were just spam posts advertising mobile products, and didn't address your issue at all.

Not yet...

AIM is available for most platforms, including Windows Mobile, iOS, and Android, but WP7 is not yet supported, nor have I heard an announcement regarding upcoming support. Unfortunately, many developers are taking a "wait and see" approach before investing time and resources into developing WP7 apps, limiting availability at the moment.

The good news is that you can view the current selection of WP7 apps by downloading the (free) Zune client and then going Marketplace->Apps. That's the same selection you would see browsing available apps directly on the HD7, so you can determine if the apps you desire are currently available or if you should hold off a bit longer.

Hope this helps,

I'm an app developer

And my other developer friends put all work on hold for WP7 due to the draconian rules and the fact we can't distribute our company apps via the company site.

Microsoft is trying very hard but it appears that they are not getting the message.

Yes, there are AIM apps for what you're referring to. I'm not sure if there are any official AIM programs, but there's third party AIM clients. To name a couple there's eBuddy Lite Messenger and IM Plus. Happy
