    I recall an older version of MSN Messenger that let you make phone calls. Does Microsoft plan on bringing this feature back?

    No. Someone might sue them for making computers easy to use.

    You might be referring to a Video Conference. I'm referring to making an actually phone call through MSN Messenger to (for example) 1-555-555-5555, it was pulled in either version 4.x or 5.x.
