From the forums: Exchange connections, sending contacts, over-the-air updates

0

Here's a forum post from WMExperts reader Blinocac200sx, who has a problem with his Exchange account.

How do I change my exchange account. It's currently set for a place I no longer work for, and now I want to use it at my current job. I can change the server, but it doesn't want to let me change the domain or user name.

The answer's easy enough, if you know where to look. (Yeah, welcome to Windows Mobile.)

What else is going on in the forums? Simbadogg asks about over-the-air updates with Windows Mobile 6.5. The Celio REDFLY developer's forum is jumping. And Glidersgalore needs some help sending a contact by e-mail. Join the conversations!

Review: Nite Ize Cargo Clip Case

Review: Nite Ize Cargo Clip Case

If you have any experience with Nite Ize, no doubt you’ve seen their rugged, blue collar cases. Although they’ve dabbled in more traditional leather pouches and such, a Nite Ize case is typically characterized by tough rip-stop nylon and a belt clip that is practically indestructible. The Nite Ize Cargo Clip case is another addition to their line of rugged cases.

T-Mobile Touch Pro 2 to be $349.99 with 2-year contract; $549 retail

31

With the T-Mobile Touch Pro 2 set for release on Wednesday, pricing was still a bit up in the air. But TmoNews has tracked down some confirmation, and it's as we feared — this is gonna be pricey.

A two-year contract will get you the Touch Pro 2 for $349.99. A one-year contract takes it to $399, and the TP2 will sell at retail for $549. But as we've said before, you need to factor in the price of the voice and data plans when figuring the overall cost.

That said, it sounds like a good many of you are willing to drop that much, if not more, for one of the most anticipated phones so far this year. What say you?

Yes, that's the AT&T Touch Pro 2

Yes, that's the AT&T Touch Pro 2

That's it, we give up. Here's the HTC Touch Pro 2 with AT&T branding, courtesy of Engadget, in case you hadn't had enough TP2 news this week, what with learning the Verizon and Sprint versions will have 3.5mm headphone jacks and whatnot. (And start your guessin' as to the "Tilt 2" will have the headphone jack.)

So here's what we're gonna do: We're not going to sleep until all four major U.S. carriers release the bloody things. We've pulled out the emergency take-out menu repository, stocked up on Red Bull and are duct-taping ourselves to the office chairs. Settle in, boys and girls. It's gonna be a long month.

Do you think the AT&T Tilt 2 will have a 3.5mm headphone jack?(polls)

Wireless data number crunching

Wireless data number crunching

 

GigaOM Pro Analyst Network has compiled, crunched, compared, and slide-showed wireless data stats for the second quarter of 2009. The numbers seem to indicate that the demand for wireless data continues to grow despite the national economic picture.

The highlights of the report are as follows:

  • U.S. wireless data service revenue grew 7% during the second quarter to $10.6 billion (with a "B"). This represents a 30% gain compared to the second quarter of 2008.
  • Verizon and AT&T represented the largest gains with both seeing an 8% increase.
  • The U.S. is now the largest mobile data market in the world passing Japan and China.

Broken down by service provider, Verizon is tops with regards to the total number of subscribers with 87.7 million followed closely by AT&T with 79.6 million.  Sprint was a distant third with 49.7 million subscribers.  Combined, AT&T and Verizon account for 69% of the data market and 61% of the wireless subscriber base.  Sprint, T-Mobile, AT&T and Verizon each saw an increase in Pre-Paid subscribers

GigaOM Pro offers a full review of the second quarter numbers here (subscription required) or you can follow the break to catch the slide show highlights.

Sprint Touch Pro 2 also has 3.5mm jack!

21

No sooner do Malatesta and yours truly mull over whether the Sprint Touch Pro 2 will have a 3.5mm headphone jack in the upcoming podcast (look for it Monday) does Engadget give us the answer (as well as the best pics we've seen so far).

So, to recap, the Sprint, Verizon and Telus versions have it. T-Mobile doesn't. And while we're early into the leak cycle of the AT&T Tilt 2, we're gonna go out on a limb here and say odds are looking pretty good.

'Tilt 2' - aka the Touch Pro 2 - seen on leaked AT&T pre-launch sheet (and maybe the Snap)

6

When it comes to the HTC Touch Pro 2, the Verizon folks have been fed. The T-Mobile fans can taste it. And the Sprint survivors should see it any week now. But we've had nary a word from AT&T since we first saw that leaked render of the HTC Fortress.

Well, here's another pretty good sign that AT&T will follow up the Fuze with the Touch Pro 2, though it looks like it'll be going by another name. In this pre-launch lineup purloined by the Boy Genius Report, we clearly see two flavors of the HTC "Tilt 2" — one with camera, and one without.

So there you have it, folks. We had little doubt that AT&T would release the Touch Pro 2 — it's been a longtime fan of the HTC slider devices. BGR also believes that the HTC Pure mentioned here is the Snap, which is a good bet. Now let's get cracking on some release dates and price.

Google Voice on Windows Mobile: 'GVDialer' vs 'iDial'

17

Now that Google Voice invites are going out (click link for demo video), the question of how to make calls on your Windows phone via your GV account arises.

See, the issue is this: you hand out your GV number to everyone, but you then call from your cell phone and your cell number shows up, not your GV number.  For some, it doesn't matter. But for others, they may want to protect their private numbers.

To get around this, you can call Google Voice from one of your designated phones, follow the prompts, enter your passcode then the number you want to dial.  No doubt a hassle when on the go.

The solution?  Since Google has no official WinMo solution (yet), third party companies and individual developers have taken a shot at it and there are at least two very good ones we can recommend here: GVDialer and iDialer by Supware.

Curious as to how they work and brief review of both?  Read on ...

And, finally, renders of AT&T's Touch Pro 2 & Touch Diamond 2

11

Ask and ye shall receive, dear readers. While these are "just" renders and not the in-the-flesh mockups we've seen of the T-Mobile, Sprint and Verizon Touch Pro 2s, what we've got here are renders of what supposedly will be coming to AT&T, courtesy of Engadget.

The purloined spec slides are after the break, but everything's about what we've been told, save for launch dates, of course. And we'd expect the home buttons you see on here on the Touch Pro 2 (Fuze 2?) and Touch Diamond 2 to most likely be replaced by the Windows flag button. Also interesting is that AT&T finally may be going with the Diamond line after passing on the original iteration.

And in case there were any confusion that HTC phones get coolest code names out there, the Touch Pro 2's been dubbed the Fortress, and the TD2's the Warhawk.

The headline and picture just about say it all here. It appears the Samsung Omnia II, apparently slated for Verizon, should be at Best Buy on or about Aug. 23. [via BGR] No word on pricing, or when the Omnia II would be available through other outlets.

We're gonna be rabble rousers here for a second, Verizon fans: Omnia II, or HTC Whitestone/Diamond 2? Vote in the poll below, and leave your reasoning in the comments.
