About time, they've been advertising it in various forums at least 6 months now. Any clue if this works on 4.0? If not I guess I could be that guiny pig

I got IM+ to work quite a while back, but I still prefer WebMessenger.

However, IM+ is cheaper to use than WebMessenger and I seem to remember that it directly connects to the IM servers rather than goes through a central server like WebMessenger. (At least I think so)

Thanks, Mark. Did you ever try to use IM+ to instant message with a mobile phone user? That was my main problem with webmessenger, it would never recognize if someone who was using a mobile phone was online. Also, I could receive messages, but any message I sent through webmessenger to a SMS AIM phone user would be blank.

Yeah, WebMessenger doesn't seem to work with that very well. I only have two contacts that are cellphone/SMS users, though...
