As title says, my ebuddy doenst see users logged in with 
SMS for Windows Live

As seen here

Does anyone know which client if any can see these users?  Im trying to use my data to msn a friend in US on Verizon, it costs her 25c to send and 20c to recieve texts internationally, we are trying to use msn to circumnavigate this and make it free (we both pay for services which makes it free (ish) )

Why can't she just use an msn client on her pc, or phone? SMS for windows live just seems
over complicating something simple

Sorry, we are trying to be able to contact each other through the Cell Phones when out and about. I have managed to find a work around solution called TextPlus, its free for me and free for her to reply.

However im still looking for a client that can see these users for the iPhone and Linux
