Microsoft Releases Windows Live Messenger 8.1

Windows Live Messenger is Microsoft’s next-generation MSN Messenger. It has the same features as MSN Messenger (contact list, emoticons, and instant access to your friends via text, voice, and video) — plus new ways to connect and share photos and documents effortlessly.
    • YAHOO! – With Windows Live Messenger, you can now connect with your Yahoo! friends. 
    • PC-to-PC Calling – Have a high-quality voice conversation using PC-to-PC Calling.
    • Better Video Conversations – New Messenger gives better: live, full-screen (640×480) video.
    • Sharing Folders – Drag a file onto a contact’s name creating a Sharing Folder. Now you and your contact can get to all the files in the folder any time, even if one of you is offline.
    • Text Message Phones – See a little mobile icon next to a friend’s name?  Just right click to send a text message.
    • Windows Live Alerts – Headlines, sports scores, traffic, or just about anything else you want to keep up with — get pop-up notifications of things as they happen.

    Any ideas how to get that little mobile icon next to my name in my friend’s contact list? I have tried to sign up to MSN Mobile but I never see the mobile icon in my friend’s contact list.
