For those that are on a 3 X-series pack with 3 Australia, you get free Windows Live Messenger to use on your mobile phone. Go to your web browser and connect via Planet 3. Go To Address: http://three.net.au/go/On3/IM. This will take you here and you can download the application for connecting to MSN.
After that, its just a matter of going to the Installations menu item and opening Messenger. When prompted, you shoul connect via Planet 3 and not Mobile Internet (or it may freeze).
How's Windows Live Messenger on Mobile? Its surprisingly easy to use. Each new conversation becomes a tab at the top which you can toggle by pressing left and right. When talking to someone, the OPTIONS menu gives you options such as Sending a file/photo, vibration alert and changing your status. Not sure yet if you can receive files from other MSN messenger users to your mobile.
Emoticons are a little harder to use, requiring  or  to make smiles or go to the OPTIONS and select the emoticon you would like to send.. but you can't send an emoticon in that way with text on the same line.
How do you stop it from asking what "Select Access Point"? I am yet to figure this out :P
