Less work for them if they get you to take a blackberry and let blackberry do the work for them. Microsoft would never sell the corporate edition. And not have support for a phone running there own OS
ediwitch, 11 Dec 2009could you tell me what is the difference between drive mode and active sync mode ??I used to c... morewhy don’t you read the manual for this phone it is a free download on the HTC UK site. You will be surprised to know the things it can do that you did not know about.
And that goes for every one that has the phone and did not bother to read the manual.
This in not and iphone you will have to do some reading. And it is a business phone so it is taken for granted that people that buy it know how to read.
There are 3 modes to pick from when you hook this phone to your PC
1. ActiveSync mode. The main purpose of the mode is to sync with outlook, install .msi files, share your PC internet connection with the phone so you don’t have to use your data plan or Wi-Fi and access all files on the phone or memory card. This mode needs ActiveSync to be installed on your PC for it to work
2. Disk Drive mode. The main purpose of this mode is to access the memory card only and use it as if it was a flash drive. No added software will have to be installed to use it in this mode on a PC or a MAC
3. Internet sharing mode. This mode is to use the phone as a modem for your PC. ActiveSync will have to be installed for this mode to work.

A lot of companies, especially larger companies (or companies with government contracts that need to met certain certification standards) only support Blackberry for external email. Often the only other way to get email off-site is via a laptop and VPN.
There is a Blackberry connect program that runs on WM and Symbian but I don’t know if it is supported on newer versions of those Oses.

This phone is running windows mobile its main purpose is to sync with and get push email form Microsoft Outlook corporate editions. If your I.T. can’t set it up they need to go back to school.
Tell me it can’t sync with lotus notes and maybe... just maybe... I would believe you. But not Microsoft Outlook corporate. Did you ever even read the book for this phone?
I installed the pink color problem update, but still i see the pink color at certain angles while takes images....
Hmn... Conversations here make me want to go for the Bravo. I can't believe how problematic this phone could be. And here I was thinking of how 6.5 was "supposed" to have fixed the issues plaguing the WinMo platform.
I guess I'll have to revert to the perfect combination of iPhone + BlackBerry.
High Tech, 11 Dec 2009Why would you want to do that?? Just buy a blackberry.The reason why the guy wants Blackberry software is because some corporates are using Blackberry Enterprise Server to deliver outlook on the phone. Any other model is no longer supported on BES, in effect this means anyone without Blackberry cannot be added to the BES server to sync with outlook. I worked for a Hepldesk for a multinational where people were forced to change over to Blackberry from other smart phones :((

But when I copied the same link I click, and passed it in the address bar of internet explorer it worked just fine. I could even click the play button that was an image in the card and the video played. I did see the icon to download flash but that is for a desktop PC not flash for a mobile phone. But explorer supports flash that works with that site right out of the box, so why you trying to install one that was not made for this phone?
That is what could have complicated things for you (maybe I don’t know for shore). Go in “application” and try to uninstall what ever you installed and then reboot.
Don’t try to open it in Opera the version on the phone does not support flash.

It is an “.exe” file you get to keep. Put it on your SD and run it. If a new rom comes out, all you have to do is run it again if you need to. The fix is not part of the rom it can be installed and uninstall at anytime by any one on any HD2 version. Hacked or not :-)

For xp you Download and install “Microsoft ActiveSync 4.5”
For vista you Download and install “Windows Mobile
Device Center 6.1”
If you have already done that and you still not seeing your phone in sync mode it is because you have a USB1.1 port on your PC and this phone is USB2.
To fix this just slow the port on the phone by going to
“USB to PC”
Then uncheck “Enable fast data synchronization”
