Winmo Direct Push email

So I got an HTC Fuze, unlocked it, ripped the software and installed new non-AT&T ROM. I'm trying to get some direct push software for instant email notification (like what is available for Blackberry).

I know that there is software that it is "supposed to be" available with the new version of software that is available for the Tilt, but since AT&T hasn't officially released the technology for it, the phone is not bringing up the PIN# required to run off of Blackberry's server, so that software won't work.

Anyone have a (preferable free) fix for this? Or new software that can be downloaded for "instant" email notification.

Thanks in advance.

Using a cell phone as a modem for faxing (WITHOUT data)

I have a Motorola V365 (GSM) with T-Mobile. Recently, I switched my land-line over to T-Mobile as well for VoIP. In the past, I've always used Windows fax with a modem to send faxes, but, now that I'm on VoIP, that's now impossible (incompatible).

I'm trying to find a way to connect my phone (via USB) and use it as a modem (on nights and weekends) to send faxes like before. I don't want to use one of those rip-off internet fax companies, and I don't want to have to get a land-line. My call phone plan doesn't include data.

From what I've found, I installed Motorola Phone Tools, the phone modem drivers, and the computer recognizes the phone as a modem. Good so far. I can dial a number from my computer desktop (with the application) and c...

HTC Tilt

I didn't know where else to post this, the HTC forum is pretty dead.

Anyway, I have an AT&T 8925 and my Xpress Mail is setup. But my emails keep getting deleted without me knowing. I set the maximum capacity to 300, and once it reached about 150 emails the entire inbox got deleted. They are still on the main server, but it's just frustrating trying to respond to an email that has been deleted from the phone. Thanks in advance.

Please help

I have a virgin mobile phone that was my brother's phone. He recently passed away (3/4/09), and he has it locked with a passcode. I am trying to get in his phone (it's a prepaid phone) to contact the people who left him voicemail messages. He lived in a different state from me and I don't know who his friends are. Can anyone help me unlock his phone? Trying to figure out his passcode is impossible and I don't think Virgin Mobile will give it to me. It's a KYOCERA model phone.

Thanks for any help you can give. From what I understand it will only hold messages for 30 days and that time is approaching since he died on March 4th.

Verizon Cell / PDA

Hi, I was wondering if somebody could suggest what is a best way to combine my dell pda with verizon cell. I mainly used my dell pda for contacts, calendar, task and to write notes and sync with my Outlook desktop. Instead of carrying both device , i was hoping to carry one only. My Verizon cell is provided as part of my work so I have to stick with this carrier. I am also on a budget and don't wish to pay extra monthly cost. Must have option is bluetooth capability. Options that are nice to have are: 1)able to access the internet via my home wifi and 2) be able to send pop3 email via my home wifi. Am I limited to Verizon Smartphones/PDS only? Or Can i just get a 3rd party phone and give the serial number to Verizon so they can transfer it. ...

LTE = Hera Agathon

Upon a few days reflection, following the finale of the best show ever...

CDMA & GSM are passing away, and the new technology of LTE calls them both parents. The best qualities of both have been integrated into what is going to be the standard going forward.

There's ever increasing detente between the two, and though there's still some residual contention, there's only going to be harmonious convergence going forward.
