Imagine you're out in the offline world and need to get a hold of someone. Imagine that all you have to work with is a cell phone. What do you do? Why, you hop on IRC of course!
The Virca IRC midlet lets you connect to IRC from a wide range of J2ME compatible phones and devices.
A short list of some of the features:
Profiles, for using multiple servers without having to type the host/nick each time
For screenshots and a little documentation, see the Virca Manual. Problems that aren't mentioned in the manual? mail me.Virca is not under active development, so go easy on the feature requests. Besides, there's a good chance jmIrc already has it.
Wap page available at http://wap.vidarholen.net/.
Motorolas can also get it OTA from www.vidarholen.net.

Quit/Nick messages printed in current window, instead of where the person was (no list of nicks to compare against held).
Ignoring your own nick will have dire consequences
C100 Russian displaying. The phone is broken; unless someone sends a patch, it will never be supported.

Reported to work on the following models: (*, might require Poll mode)
