Muggy - can you confirm your ROm / Radio versions etc?

Thanks


I've got:

R 1.06.00
G 42.40.P8
D 1.20.43

I haven't upgraded, this is what was installed out-of-the-box.

Interesting - a later version than my coleagues. So it didn't have MSN but then they added - and now they're saying you can't use it. I'm confused :)

I could be wrong but I know the only MDA Pro I've seen din't have itand I'm fairly certain the compact II doesn't either (the two guys in the office with them are both out this afternoon so I can't check).

Does anyone have a T-Mob phone that came with MSN already installed?



T-mobile's repsonse was that msn was banned and the fact that msn is installed on my MDA is an oversight, which is "beyond their control".

Hi Guys, I got my MDA Pro last week but it locked up and wouldn't reset so I downloaded the TMobile ROM to install and it came with Pocket MSN and Messenger installed.
RADIO: 1.06.00
ROM: 1.20.32
PROTOCOL: 42.40.P8

well i'm using the new Windows Live Messenger Mobile Beta on my phone and it's working fine on T-Mobile. If they call me then i'll explain that Pocket MSN is installed by default on my phone.

Is there a public Beta out yet? Is it any good?

I'm sure most people will just use MSN as it's installed on their phone anmd won't have a clue that it's supposed to be banned.

I got my Pro 4 weeks ago - just squeezed my order in before the end of April to get the discount but had to wait another 2 weeks before delivery. Pocket MSN w/Messenger was installed.

Good news. That lack of Pocket MSN on the Pro when it was launched made no sense...

I don't believe it's "public" yet. it's on connect an invite only but most people haven't been accepted yet and it's only MSN butterflies etc that are on the program at the moment.

As for the app, yes it's great. A few things are annoying because it always syncs the contacts from MSN into your contacts on the phone and then onto Exchange if you use it! This can be v.annoying as you get duplicate contacts and contacts you didn't want within Outlook. It also syncs to Exchange everytime someone changes their status so if you have a lot of contacts you'll find it syncs a lot. On the plus side you can now see peoples contact pictures, emoticons (not custom), send files/pictures and voice recordings and view people's spaces. It's a great client but needs a lot of work like Windows Live Messenger did.

Yeah, I'm testing WML as well. I was in the first beta test (the one where testers got that non-slip driving matt for their phones embossed wit the logo when testing was complete - nice little gift if you ask me) and they invited me to come back and do it again.
Liking what I see so far, its very promising.

Yeah that was a bit of a different beta. This is Mobile 10.7 beta.

If you've been accepted then post in the microsoft.beta.mobile10_7.general ng and say hello as there's not that many of us yet.

My MDA Vario has MSN installed. I am waiting for a ROM upgrade to fix the random reboots. I might not take the chance now, and instead go with imate's ROM if t-mobile resort to restrictions.

Vodafone restrict many of their phones so you can't set MP3 files as ringtones (in the hope that people buy songs from their store instead). It just makes me want to set my PDA to download pointless junk when its charging, just to get my money's worth! Come on, if you sell someone 40mb a month (or unlimited as it is now) you can't go making it limited!

I've recently done a hard reset on my Vario and not installed the extended T-Mobile ROM. Pocket MSN with MSN Messenger is still there, so it looks like it's a standard part of the Windows Mobile ROM.

Yes and no but T-Mobile have the ability to remove Pocket MSN from their devices.

I posted this a few posts ago, but I don't think anyone has seen it - i have had confirmation from T-mobile that instant messanger is banned from use on their unlimited web and walk plans - I have confrimed this with 3 different ops now.

Not according to their T&C's, no, you're not. Seems right silly to most people.

I recently looked at changing from Orange to T Mobile purely because of the Web N Wlak for ?7.50, but on reading all the small print decided against it due to the fact that so many wbe features were banned. like video and audio streaming, it just comes across as a complete gimmick to try and get customers using the web, but how many people ONLY view web pages and dont download anyhing at all.

I use the web a lot - just don't stream or use VoIP - apart from that you can do anything (incl downloading files).
Never beeen a problem for me and I certainly couldn't afford the amount of data I use on any other network!
