In March 2013 Windows Live Messenger is going down - switching off. All users will be on Skype from what I have read.
In the UK at least, Blackberry does not operate with Skype - it won't work or install.
Yet we can use "MSN" on our phones easily.
So after March 2013, does that mean all the people we chat with on MSN, we no longer can, because Skype still won't be functional on every BB???

Ok so I was asked if i wanted to upgrade my Messenger, so have done that, and now I have to use Skype for ALL my hotmail accounts, because it is REMOVED Messenger from my laptop.
Thankfully I can still login to MSN via my Blackberry.
But if Skype doesn't get it sorted so we can sign into it from March, if Messenger shutsdown on BB, then I am screwed and won't be able to keep in touch with people using MSN.
I cannot believe how short sighted either Skype or Blackberry are being. We need access, and are ALL being cut off from it.
And no one seems to know.

..... it should not have deleted Windows Live Messenger on your PC.
For me, it said something like "Windows Messenger will be uninstalled...". I didn't have the choice to keep it.

My personal feeling is that this is not going to change for existing BlackBerry phones.
I was wrong.
