NeuStar, a provider of clearinghouse and directory services, has announced that it has partnered with mobile phone operator SFR to bring Windows Live Messenger to SFR’s customers in France.
SFR customers now will be able to access Windows Live Messenger directly from their mobile phones using the same login information and enjoying the same experiences and buddy lists that they would on their desktop PCs.
Users can download the service from the SFR website to a number of mobile handsets.
Allen Scott, general manager of NeuStar Next Generation Messaging, said: More and more operators across the globe are realizing that they can generate revenue and user loyalty by rolling out mobile instant messaging services to their customers. We knew that it would be rewarding to provide a service to SFR because they always want to offer their customers the best possible solution. It has been great working with them to bring this project to fruition.
