    Hi everyone,

    Just bought a HTC HD7 and loving it. Seriously looking for an application something like ebuddy where I can log in to different account (Gtalk, Hotmail, Yahoo) and chat on the go. Any idea such application exist on windows 7 mobile OS ? (Preferably if it's a free application). I tried going to m.ebuddy.com from the phone but it says that it doesn't support the file or something like that. Any input would be appreciated.

    thanks. I guess there might b a way cuz I was just reading some text in chinese. That means it supports unicode I guess. Anyway, one more question sorry if it does sound stupid. How can i connect my mobile to my pc ? I tried plugging in the USB cable from my fone to pc, but no new driver letter appear on my computer and Zune is not running on my pc. It keeps crashing whenever I try turning it on. Thanks

    Do you have Windows Installer 4.5 installed on your PC? If not, try installing it and remove and reinstall Zune software

    Go visit http://www.beejive.com/ and tell them you want a client for WP7. They have already told me that if they get enough emails saying people want an IM client for WP7 they will develop one.

    Huh ? some kinda joke ? If that's the case, they might get lots of spams. Better wait for ebuddy or meebo to come up with something free. ;)

    Some kind of joke? Not, it's no joke. Beejive is one of the best clients there is (ebuddy is awful, meebo was alright). I'd happily pay for their IM client on the WP7.

    Agile Messenger is also a good client. Hope they come with a version for WP7. Will email them too :)

    Any developers our there working on an app or want to start working on one? Or is everyone waiting and hoping for one to be released within the next couple of weeks?

    Thanks for that link! I hope IM+ comes out with a good app for WP7. I've never used it, but I remember reviews from other platforms were not so stellar. It received one of the worst reviews for an IM app, especially because it's price tags didn't warrant it's bugs and usability compared to the dozens of free apps. Can't remember which platform it was for, but they were trying to sell it off for $29.99... WHAT?!? :rolleyes:

    Yes you are right. It was buggy in the initial days but then it evolved into a client with robust design. I have used Agile Messenger, ebuddy and IM+. Agile messenger is the best out of the three.
