There are several ways to detect YM user’s status even they’re not on our contact list. Here is for examples:
- Install a software called Buddy Spy download here : More fast and accurate and it have a lot of features but must installed on our box, not practice I think 😛
- Install a shmessanger on our phone. It’s come with a spy feature.
Easy to use, high portability, only can scan a user that on our contact list already.
- Visit a web a “special service”
Fast, accurate and can scan everyone else (as long as him/her id is exists, of course :D) and see or download the avatar images.
