What is a beta anyway?

Beta is geek speak for "not finished yet." A beta product is something we are still working on and invite regular users to test out. We're asking you to check out the Windows Live Messenger beta for mobile devices and let us know what you really think—good and bad. That way, we can make the final product the best it can be.

What kind of phone do I need to have to get Windows Live Messenger beta-mobile?

Is your phone Web-enabled, and does it have a color screen? Then it probably uses a browser that supports xHTML(WAP 2.x), cHTML (iMode), or HTML, and you'll be able to use Windows Live Messenger beta for mobile devices.

Does it cost anything?

We won't charge you anything, but your mobile wireless provider may charge you to access the Web on your mobile device.
