    Has anyone used Facebook chat in Mango extensively? How's battery life? Do new messages come in instantly or is there a delay? Is there a way to turn it on or off? Does this mean people will see me as constantly logged into Facebook chat?

    i use facebook chat all the time and you get your chat notifications just like texts and appear threaded.

    You can change the status of the chat to be busy, offline etc. My chat is on all the time and doesn't seem to affect the battery unduly.

    I hope they integrate Google Talk soon, or just hurry up with Whatsapp.

    I saw a page that said you can get you Gtalk contacts to be imported to windows live and after after they accept, you could chat with them as you do with you Facebook friend and WLM contacts. I've tried it, twice , but can't get the contacts to show.

    Good to hear it's not a battery drain. I'll probably try to use that instead of text messaging when I can. Seriously when are carriers going to lower the costs of texts?

    We'll have to create a WPCentral chat group when Mango comes out.
