Of the big three, MSN Messenger is the least popular IM service on mobile devices (such as phones and PDA's). What do you think is the reason? Are you a frequent mobile IM user? What are your thoughts?

Lack of support.

I had installed a copy of a msn messenger mobile application around 3 years ago for my Symbian phone and it simply didnt work because the ISP for my phone blocked all ports except 80.

I have yet to find a decent implementation of it for my current phone.

I use a symbian based program called IM+ which connects to all IM networks, but to be honest Microsoft should create a program for mobile devices (other than Windows Smartphone OS) so that this can be done more easily, and with 3G becoming more prominent across europe it could work well.

Ok well i have had MUCH expirience with msn on a mobile device. Back 1 or 2 years ago i got a Nokia N-gage QD and back then there was a problem with my mobile service provider and it let me have access to FREE FULL HTTP internet.

So that allowed me to use any internet program on my phone as it wasnt restricted like wap.

I chose to use Agile Messenger. It was a free fast program for msn, yahoo, icq and others i think. IT WORKS ABSOFUKINLOOTELY FANTASTIC! I was thrilled! Free flawless great msn mesenger on my phone! I could send pictures to my contacts and voice clips and stuff and it was wikid. I could rename contacts so it was easy to see who they were.

It was amazing.. But then the free http internet stopped. So i was pushed back to PAYING for WAP. WAP is a restrictive internet which does not let much stuff work. So yeh there were close to NO wap msn messengers as it really needs full http internet to work properly and good. So yeh I just gave up on msn messenger there. Also because of the ENOURMOUS price it cost.

Since then i have gotten a slightly less intelligent phone however it looks better. The motorola v360. This phone does not support Symbian programs, but just java.

The thing about java programs is that they are so crap! Slow and weird and restrictive. So yeh. Oh but i am going to be using msn on my new phone very soon!!!! I am going to be changeing to optus which allows msn messenger use for 23c every day its used. That is excellent. so now i am going to sum this up.

Why MSN Messenger isn't used much on mobiles:
Smartphones are rare amoung people
Java is slow and crap
The price is too much
Prepaid (so cant use full http internet)

edit- oh and the msn messenger i soon gonna use is not that good lol, but atleast it is an msn. Its java so its quite annoying. Thus not making me want to use it much

Hmm I have unlimited browser with my cell phone. I am able to download the .jar file of MSN but then I have to pay $3 a month.

Anyone know of a way to bypass this cost using my WAP.

I do realize I can use MSN via the WAP though. All data is included in my unlimited mobile browser.

Any alternatives for me for free?? msn_angel.gif

I have unlimited GPRS for about 10E every month, so for me it's very easy to get my phone and launch MSN during a boring economics lesson msn_tongue.gif
