    Okay, i have fring, IM+ lite, etc.

    There is just one problem; i WANT a messenger EXACTLY like Windows Live Messenger, or essentially the messenger itself.

    I know there is no way Apple will accept an app based on a microsoft application to the app store, so i'm asking here.

    Is it remotely possible, to make a Windows Live MESSENGER app (with all it's functions- display pictures, personal messages, statuses, etc)?
    Is there one that already exists, or similar?
    Can SOMEBODY please create one?

    I'm dying to be able to use MSN on my ipod. Not the half-ass fring, etc.

    I assumed it was another fring, or IM+ but i searched it up again and WOW.

    Do you mind if i ask you a few questions about it?

    1) Have you used windows live messenger? How is the transition from it, to this? (is it very user friendly to the typical WLM user like me?)

    2) The app mentioned "buddy icons". What about 'display pictures'? Will i be able to see my friends' actual display picture like i would on WLM?

    3) If buddy icons, could i change each contact's buddy icon myself?

    4) Personal messages. Same question as above but are the grey text under each user the personal messages?

    5) If i were to sign on Beejive IM, would there be any changes to my name on my friends contact list? (For example, when i sign into fring, i always have a 'fring' status in my friends lists)

    6) Where does it save the chat logs to? What format? How do i get them from my ipod?

    7) Could i use WLM emoticons? Or are they beejive's ones.

    8) VERY IMPORTANT QUESTION: could i arrange the list LIKE WLM? For example, I keep my list - online/offline. I don't put them in groups. Is there an option for this? (Since i do not see it in the sample screens)

    THANK YOU.

    1 - I use a mac so I dunno.
    2 - Yes , there is buddy pictures
    3 - I don't think so
    4 - I'm not sure , I'm pretty sure you can add your own personal message though
    5 - It wouldn't have the fring thing , and you can change whatever you want it to look like in Beejive
    6 - Not sure , why would you need them

    2) What i meant was, does it take the "display pictures" in each of my contacts as if i was on WLM? Like for example AIM has 'buddy icons', WLM has "display pictures", how does this work?
    Will i be able to see my friend's display pictures as if i was on WLM?

    5) For example, whenever we sign into e-messenger, we would always have a "on E-messenger" status in our names. Is this shown to my friends? as in "Kenneth (on BeeJiveIM)"? Or will it simply be "Kenneth" as if i signed on WLM.

    Thanks, you helped a LOT.

    For the MSN contacts it will show dp's , and for AIM it will show little buddy icons.

    And I'm not honestly sure , it might , I would check for you , but I don't have an iPod anymore
