Top 3 Mobile Chat Applications You Must have

Top Mobile Chat ApplicationsWhen We activate GPRS Packs in Mobile, we tend make complete use of it.One of the desired thing is to have Chat IMs(Instant Messenger) on Phone so that one could constantly keep in touch with their Online buddies.

Some of your Phones come with Inbuilt Chat Clients, if you don’t have default Chat Clients you can Use Third Party Chat Clients like Nimbuzz, Fring, eBuddy, mig33, Palringo.Here we try to provide quick insights on some of the IMs.

We have Tested these Chat Clients in Nokia 5230 (Symbian60V5 device) you can also find Download Links for the Apps which is suitable for your Model.


Using Nimbuzz is a Good Experience though it Takes Several Seconds (or even minutes) to make Connection, Sync Accounts and load your Contacts.

It works like Charm when it is Completely loaded if you spare few extra seconds you will enjoy a wholesome chatting experience.

Every 3rd Party Mobile Chat Application Needs Users to Register with them you got to have a Nimbuzz Account before you could add any of other Third Party IMs like GoogleTalk, Yahoo or any another.

Once you are done with login all you need to do is set up all your other IMs which Prompts for your Username and Password.

I integrated my Gtalk Account to Know how it works.. These are the features which i observed

-Great User Interface you don’t feel difficulty in logging in.

-All Chat Sessions are Temporarily saved and different Tabs are maintained

-Unlimited Chat Rooms, Groups etc.

-Supports Voice Calls- Gtalk(Free) Also Call Phone Contacts (Buy Credits) Even on 2G

-Send File

-Share Photos

-Cool Touch Experience, Amazing Smiley Collections.. Must have App for Touch Phones.

-Pop Up Sound is Fresh and less irritative.

File Size. 1.24 Mb


Features observed in Fring.

-Opens in Start Up of Phone(By Default)

-Loading Time is Impressive (Once Connected)

-Has a Cooler Interface than Nimbuzz.

-Notification Sound for Chat sounds bit Irritative when compared to Nimbuzz

-Though it has the Feature to Attach Files, When I sent a File it was Unsuccessful.

-Supports Video Calls

-Supports Voip Calls ( Free with Gtalk)

-One bad thing about Fring is it Displays Google Ads which is Quite Disturbing..

File Size: 1.15 Mb


eBuddy’s File Size is Pretty Impressive Just 0.29 Mb.
But Features Seems bit Limited.

– In Addition to all other Chat Clients, it supports Facebook Chat

– Loads Very Quickly and Very Lite

– User Interface is Simple and Average

– Fits only Half of the Screen in my Nokia 5230 due to Navigation Keys.

– Do not Support Voice Calls

– No Notification Sound (by default)..
– No Chat Rooms

– A Good App which can be used only as IM and not for calls.

File Size: 0.29 Mb

I Rate Nimbuzz and Fring Equally, Nimbuzz has an upper hand over fring as Nimbuzz is not Stuffed with Ads.

Both Nimbuzz and Fring has Cooler interface supporting Voice Calls and easier IM integration eBuddy being Simple, though supports Facebook Chat Client it has limited features (No Voice calls and Chat Rooms) eBuddy beats both Nimbuzz and Fring when it comes to File Size eBuddy is easy to download but has limited support.

If You want Full Fledged IM experience go with Nimbuzz or Fring Application.What Mobile Application do you Use for Chat?

    I recently downloaded Photo4Tune as an alternative for Whatsapp and Snapchat. It has got amazing emoticons, simple user interface for photo sharing. Also you can send self destruct messages popularly known as fire messaging.

  • Rehan Khan - Bangalore July 24, 2014 1:21 pm

    Well I would recommend one more Photo4tune. It’s features will blow your mind. It has all the coolest features of other chat apps like fire messaging, creating events and inviting friends, sending messages anonymously and sending self destruct pics! It is available for download on Playstore.

  • LavanyaShah August 6, 2012 6:00 pm

    Chatting applications are becoming so trendy these days. Many use Whatsapp, BBM, and this new app called WeChat. Its quite a big competition to Whatsapp as its has more features which are amazing and those are animated! Thats awesome. But in India, there are more Whatsapp users compared to WeChat. But I think WeChat can take over Whatsapp users in India as its more easy with amazing features.

    @abhishek works in vodafone live…so enjoy it…

  • Adarsh July 21, 2010 12:28 pm

    Goto It doesn’t need any downloads and simple to use…It includes the similar features…Do check that ur automatic reload feature is not enable bcoz it automatically reloads every 20sec which is very disturbing…U can disable it from settings…If u use it in operamini then it would save ur time and data cost…

  • Webly Gomes July 21, 2010 9:21 am

    Nimbuzz not available for Sony Ericsson T700. 🙁

  • Aditya July 21, 2010 8:18 am

    Vodafone Rs95 pack uses Vodafone Live APN which doesnot support socket connections.So you wont be able to run these apps on your cellfone via Vodafone Live. Either use Vodafone Mobile Connect(charges for which are pretty high) or go for Airtel Rs98 GPRS Pack.I hope this helps.

  • anmol July 20, 2010 9:32 pm

    nimbuzz takes several seconds to connect to facebook nd yahoo nd even at times gives error prompts service temporarily unavailable however gets cnnctd to other chat services… No issues faced in fring

  • abhishek July 20, 2010 9:01 pm

    I am using Nokia 7310 Supernova phone. I am not able to connect the ebuddy messenger on my phone. It’s said that ‘Connection timed out.’ My GPRS works fine for other applications. I am using Vodafone Rs. 95 GPRS pack on my Phone. Can you please suggest me the messenger for my phone? When i m trying to download Nimbuzz than it’s said that application is not avaliable for ur ph. u can use Nimbuzz Wep.

  • al33m July 20, 2010 8:19 pm

    dont know how they fake nimbuzz chatrooms but they do it, not only that in nimbuzz chatrooms fake users do exists, chatrooms are flooded etc etc..
    Coming to ebuddy ya it supports multiple accounts of single service..i think it is the only mobile messenger that supports multiple accounts with simultaneous logins..

  • Chethan July 20, 2010 4:51 pm

    Kiran :
    1. Mig33 gr8 superb..

  • Chethan July 20, 2010 4:49 pm

    al33m :
    the best thing about ebuddy is that in ebuddy u could add more than one yahoo, gmail or facebook accounts…in other IM’s u dont have that feature, u could add only one account.


    I agree with you.. Did you mean having 2 Gmail Accounts linked at a time??.. Wow! I didn’t know about this.. I would try to Update the Post that it supports multiple accounts for single service..

    Thanks for the info!

  • Chethan July 20, 2010 4:46 pm

    al33m :
    50% of nimbuzz chatrooms are fake and nimbuzz is finding hard to overcome this issue while mig33 chatrooms are pretty organised and has more features than that of nimbuzz
