Bell Mobility Canada has announced that MSN Messenger is now available on its mobile phones. Now you can tlk lk dis 2 all ur frnds all day lng.
There is a catch of course; the service will cost an extra $3 per month plus a small fee per message sent. Or $5 extra if you already subscribe to the $35 mobile data rate plan that gives you unlimited free messaging.
Here is a detailed pricing list straight from Bell’s Website. Note that there are two different ways you can receive and send messages; via text messaging or mobile browser. I would have thought there would be a sweet little Java application that looked like the PC version, but I guess a mobile browser version will have to do for now.
