    Steven, the application you are looking for is called "AjaxLife". It's actually a web page you display in the iPhone's browser (or any other computer's browser of course). Your av can't move around or see anything, but you can chat and IM and deal with your inventory.

    Actually, Magdalena was right too, there is a special IM-only viewer application called SLim. It requires you to use a different main client, not the usual SL viewer. The description (and the fact that it's not available from the iPhone store) suggest that this would not work on your iPhone, though. Infos and download on http://secondlife.com/SLim/
