Looks like although WM users were seeing this too, it was just meant for S60 users.

From a Microsoft employee (read at Modaco):

Here’s what happened: This week we rolled out a direct-to-consumer billing service for the Windows Live client on Nokia S60 in the UK and Sweden. Although we are considering doing the same at a future time for Windows Mobile, this has not been implemented – however, something happened and many of you saw a trial message on Windows Mobile devices. Windows Mobile customers shouldn’t have received any notifications of a 30-day trial and we are working as quickly as possible to correct this.

Ebuddy I've got now, quite nice but you have to select your connection type 3 times before you can actually get in ! It minimises successfully sometimes, and othertimes does a nice silent N95 crash.

Perhaps I'm a little fussy, but WLM seemed a lot more stable !

I have exactly the same issue with Fring on two phones, and have emailed them, but so far no fix.....sort of makes it a bit useless.
I find i can un-minimise it once but after that yes i locks up and then you have to restart phone!

Hi guys !

I have downloaded version 1.1.8161 but no matter what i do it wont login :(
I get this message everytime "Messenger is not accessible at the moment, pleas try later".
I have a 3 branded N95 8GB that i have Unbranded to the latest software 15.0.015 with a changed product code.
Nothing works, i have tried whirless lan at home and the internet connection i have from 3.
Is the messenger service somehow blocked from 3 or by the IMEI or product code ?
It was not in my downloadfolder in the phone so i had to find in on the web.
What is the latest version number of the client?

Oh, and i live in Sweden by the way.

Any help or tips to make it work is appreciated.

You are partial right on that.
I can't use 3's own version of MSN, but i dont liked it anyway since it dident support file transfer or voice that are included in Windows Live for Nokia S60.
So im probably missing a setting or so or something is blocking it.
Not sure what could block it though since i can use slick from lonely cat, with filetransfer and all...

Download both files from here:-

Interestingly, 3 have an offer where skype and msn are included.

While the data is free, I assume you still have to pay 1.50 a month to use msn?

And, if data for MSN is free on that 3 contract, is there anyway you can use another messenger program (slick, fring etc) if they use the same ports, or would 3 somehow be able to detect this?

I am using the same version on O2 UK and I do not get the message. Running on a N82 with no problems. Mine is not the *official* download as it is not available on the N82 yet.
