Agile Messenger will no longer be free, according to its maker Agile Mobile. This instant messenger which supports MSN, AOL, Yahoo! and ICQ will now charge a monthly licensing fee after being available for free for about 3 years.
We will begin charging a license fee of a maximum of €2.99 Euro per month, charged directly to your phone bill. The exact monthly charge may vary from country to country depending on our agreement with the local mobile operators but will never exceed €2.99, or your local currency equivalent, in any country.
Agile Mobile will use the new funds to both continue developing Agile Messenger and improve their support infrastructure. For example, they have just launched a new support forum.
