I'm not a computer savy or programing guru (just an average one).
From Google i got "Instant Bird" and "Pidgin" as open source software for instant messaging..
Ok, they are open source, but can i used them on cellphones, just like whatsapp is used?

If yes, what should i do to use them on cellphones, any platform(Android, Apple, ...)?
I no, what should i do to use them on cellphones?

Thank you for your answer.

I think WhatsApp Messenger is a smartphone messaging app which allows you to exchange messages with your friends and contacts without having to pay for SMS.

As an alternative, Meebo supports multiple IM services, including Yahoo! Messenger, Windows Live Messenger, AIM, ICQ, MySpaceIM, Facebook Chat, Google Talk, CafeMom and others. It supports OS of Mac, Windows, Linux and devices of iPhone, Android, Blackberry.

But it does not look like Meebo is open source.
