I was chatting with a friend about mobile phones and how much I rely on mine. Not just because of the phone component or the ability to stay in contact with SMS but because I also use mine to check my email when I’m not near a computer. The only thing that’s been missing has been instant messaging. I tried using a program on my phone last night to connect to the MSN network and for a moment it seemed to connect and I think I could see friends online. But then I must have done something wrong, or it was a piece of junk (yeah thats it), because it dropped out in a few seconds. Probably should look at getting a PDA rather a mobile phone some day. But I just find all the PDAs too big and I like the small factor of the mobiles.
