    You need servers (either private or in the "cloud") to manage your traffic and send the messages from one user to the other.
    You need to use Push notification messages to send the actual IM so the app will get the message even if its not open.

    You might also want a DB server to store user registration and details such as age, phone number, location and IM history, etc.
    You also need to develop the actual Phone app for that you will need to know C# for WP and design its UI prefebly with XAML.

    To get started, have a look at Azure Mobile Services...

    http://www.windowsazure.com/en-us/de...t-started-wp8/

    Although the demo is for a 'todo list', you could modify it to act like an IM app with Push Notifications.
