indeed there is. However, you have to jailbreak you iPhone, which will void its warenty. In order to jailbreak your iPhone, you first downgrade your firmware to 1.1.1 (I think) and then go, on your iphone to www.jailbreakme.com and install AppSnap. Then go to the installer that is on your home screen and go "all packages" and find "Apollo." install that and you will be good for AIMing. For more info, just so a google search on jailbrek. Feel free to PM me any questions. I jailbroke my touch and couldn't be happier

Although many have done jailbreaking, and it has huge benefits, you have to be wary that Apple's next update may brick your iPhone.

Here is an easier way:

Go to:

http://mobile.aol.com/aolproducts/mo.../im-forwarding

and enable IM forwarding; this converts your AIM session into an SMS session; Texting rates apply and you can directly reply to the AIM user as though you had a mobile version of the AIM app.

Now if Apple wasn't nazi about software development...

Case and point: Developers will thrilled that it's OS was based on OSX because.... it would be great to program for! Until developers woke up to a startling realization: you have the hack the phone to do such.


There was also talk from Apple that you'd need to get a programming license to program for it, $1000 course or some bull****, no thanks, you can lose developers.



I can program software for my free phone much easier.
