Microsoft are unlikely to write a app for rival Apple's iPhone, so I highly doubt there will ever be an official app for WLM.

The IM+ All-in-One Messenger and Palringo Instant Messenger apps for iPhone supports Windows Live Messenger.

Alternatively, you can use a web-based messenger like Meebo for iPhone or Beejive.

I'll bring you attention to:
Office
Internet Explorer
Messenger

and many more... Microsoft will still make money from making applications for other platforms ;)

Thank you both. Do you contacts receive/accept an invite or can you just move them across do you know?

it's a shame you didn't just get a proper smartphone that has messenger, office, etc built in (for cheaper) :<

I had a Windows phone (Vario MDA) previously but succumbed to the sexy iphone on Sunday.

I got around the hotmail email problem by signing into the msn mobile home page on the browser and adding it as a window??? ... okay, a square!!, on my home page. I now have access to hotmail and a version of messenger.

Get Palringo, it does WLM as well as everything else. There are a few other WLM clients but Palringo is the best.

I actually downloaded Palringo but was put off because it looked like you had to invite your contacts all over again rather than just import your list, so I deleted it.
