    Those of us who are in the UK don't have the MSN IM app right, not to worry I hear you chime there are other apps that allow you to talk to MSN buddies, read on I say.

    Open up your contacts list, and you fill find a section to add MSN addresses, I added a bunch to my contacts, but low and behold whenever I click on the MSN link for that contact, guess what happens? Diddly squat, not a sausage, nill, nada, nothing not even a whisper of "sorry you cant do that"

    Did T-Mobile forget about that?

    Wasn't it t-mo UK's idea not to include MSN?

    I'm not worried about who is to blame, I just wanted to grind my gears some more

    Well I followed that link you kindly posted, and after some investigation it seems my initial theory was correct, T-Mobile UK did make the decision not to include MSN

    Wasn't MSN some kind of SMS service though rather than a straight forward messaging application?

    I use GTalk anyway so doesn't really bother me but was surprised about the MSN thing when I heard.

    I have buddymob, but my issue isn't being able to communicate with people via MSN, it is that the feature of adding MSN addresses to the address book is pointless for UK androidians.

    Pedantic I know, but hey thats one of my inherent qualities
