I assume you're using MSN with this buddy because this is an issue
that has come up before.

There is no setting that would make Pidgin consider users who are
online only via their Mobile phone to be offline.

We know the current behavior isn't great and this is something that we
hope to improve.

In the mean time, you can look at the emblems at the right side of the
buddy list - you should be able to see a mobile phone emblem to
indicate that the user is connected via a mobile phone.
