Accessing Aol's instant messenger service

via mobile phone

Hi all,

I need to find out how to access aol’s aim (instant messenger service) via a mobile. Reason being that although my son and I are English, he is in the US Army in Iraq and he’s using AIM to keep in touch. Problem is that I’m usually out when he’s online, hence the need for a mobile service.

I understand that I need a WAP phone; can people confirm this and is there anything else I need to know, ie any other suggestions re. AIM or any known problems, recommended phones/devices etc.
