    I really want to get a Pre but I need Windows Live Messenger and there is no app that can do it on the Pre.

    Anyone know if there will be an IM client coming soon?

    Thanks,

    I'm with you, MSN = must have
    Hopefully someone's at least making a homebrew
    Pidgin would be nice

    I realize it's not an app, but this might hold you over until MSN is supported. I don't use it so I cannot vouch for its quality. I just thought I'd offer this as a temporary solution. Good luck!

    There are a few web messengers you can use but I agree, the messenger app needs some work done. WLM, Yahoo, and Jabber are already built into the app but the code needs some modifications.

    Sorry Timmy, SERO does not work with the Pre.

    Have you ever tried Meebo? Allows you to login to your various IM accounts. there are a few "glitchy" rendering issues but is getting me through until the actual apps come out.

    Darn forum won't let me post the URL...

    Could you please expand a bit on this? If true, it seems that Palm would only need to update WebOS to unlock the features...

    For the last time, this does not work!! I've spent hours and hours trying to get this working just to find out at the end that google does not allow you to use jabber repeaters with gTalk anymore. Yes, it did work in the past and you will find lots of links on how to do it, but it does NOT work anymore.

    Different icons are there in the messenger app. I bet the code is commented out somewhere.

    If that is truly the case, why would they not have them all released when the phone launched. Seems kind of stupid to withhold a feature like that.
