The answer(s) are yes and yes.   Invisible means you're online but you show as offline to your contacts.  Even though you show as offline, you can still make calls and send IMs.

 

If one of your contacts sees you as offline but they send you an IM and it's delivered, they'll be able to tell that you're in fact invisible and not offline.

Thank you, g4pilut I didn't understand it at all. So if undo send an I'm and it shows as pending then the person is really offline is that correct.

Sorry....I don't understand what you're asking there.  Can you re-state it?

As you can see at the bottom of my posts, I don't handle problems via private message.

 

If you explain what you were asking in that sentence a little better here I'll be happy to try to answer your question here.

 

What is it that still isn't clear to you about invisible status?

OK sorry,

If you do Send an im to a person that is showing that they are offline and it goes thru then does that mean that they are really online but just invisible?

If you Send an im and the person is showing invisible and the im shows as pending does that mean that the person is really Offline ?

Yes.   That's correct.

 

If you Send an im and the person is showing invisible and the im shows as pending does that mean that the person is really Offline ?

 

Well, invisible and offline status look the same to a person's contacts.  If you send an IM and it shows pending, they are really offline.  If it delivers, they're online but invisible.

 

Can you talk to more hen one person at a time but te two parties won't know it?

 

Sure.   If you're invisible you could be having an IM chat with more than one contact and neither contact would know you're chatting with the other.  Of course, even if you're online and chatting with two contacts, neither of them knows your having the chat with the other.
