Hi there, i just really want to ask a few questions about msn...

1) When is the new msn 8 coming out?

2) What features will it have?

3) Is there any way to unblock people that have blocked you?

4) With online block checkers, is there one where you can enter lots of emails to see if they are online or not?

5) On msn, can you get msn to alert you with a sound when someone comes online? Only a person you pick though?

:tazz:

1) As Microsoft would say, "When It's Ready".

2) See above.

3) Blocking is usually done for a reason and there would be point in you blocking somebody if they could unblock themselves from your list.

4) More than likely, though I would consider such an activity akin to walking round people's houses looking through the letterboxes to see if they're in or not.

5) MSN Messenger does this already for everybody.

Ok.

And is there a website where instead of entering the persons msn that you think has blocked you to see if they are online, is there one where you enter your msn address and then it tells you everyone thay has blocked you?

nope...like neil said...it doesnt make sense for a messenging service to allow you to block someone....if they are gonna just turn around and give you a tool to get around that block....if someone blcoked you on msn...it was for a reason...accept it and leave it at that

Ok,

And on msn sometimes i am talking to someone that is online then every message i type it reply with a cross and says that the message cant be deliverd even though they are online?

And, when someone blockes you, does it say that they are offline or that they have blocked you?

Ok thanks!

And with msn, is there an option to change the sounds played when people sign in?

And when you have groups in msn, and you add someone and put them in no group, when you put them in a group it wont allow you to move them back to having no group but it will allow you to chenge what group they are in?

If you wish to see who has you added to their contact list, go to options>privacy>View. That'll list everyone who has you added to their list. Typically, its a decent way to figure out of someone has you blocked... even thought it doesn't tell you if you are blocked, the simple fact that you are not on their list should be a decent indicator that they at-least want nothing to do with you.

And, as others have stated, if someone has blocked you, then accept that and move on. There's no point in trying to get around the block and harass them. They will simply block you again (if you somehow manage to get unblocked) and possibly complain to MSN support and have you banned from the service itself.
