    I setup MSN and accidently unchecked "Allow people on my contacts..."

    I got the mobile phone registered OK but I cannot check the "allow..." it is
    greyed out.

    How do I get MSN to allow me to check the "allow..." box

  2. Greetings John,

    While your Mobile account is being setup, this may go gray. Sign out and back in to refresh
    it and hopefully it will become available again. I've also seen it take about a day for
    Messenger to decide that there is a mobile account (backend stuff happening I suppose).
