Hm. I've tried all three. I'm not getting incoming messages from MSN.
Yahoo works, and AIM works. I like the SMS notification because you can't
receive incoming calls while the web browser is active. But the UI for
all of the Instant Messaging clients is a little clunky...
This is really no different from Verizon. I'm pretty sure the only
web-enabled Verizon IM client is MSN, which makes sense since Verizon and
MSN are in bed together (did you notice that if you exit out of MSN Messenger
you go to a page that says "VZW with MSN"?) AOL uses SMS exclusively on
Verizon's system, and it actually works amazingly well.. (OK, there is one
big difference, you can get SMS notifications on Sprint but you still have
to fire up the web browser to *read* the messages.)
