Syncronizing the Droid with Corporate Microsoft Exchange Server

O.K. So i never want to leave Verizon, but my the phone selection was beginning to get challenging when blackberries are not an option. So I ran out like others to purchase the DROID. Such an amazing PDA. Every aspect of the phone is great, but I am really having a problem with getting up and running with my office. Here is the issue: Active Sync and numerous corporate office servers require security measures to fully enable the DROID to have the calendar, e-mail and contacts to be pushed without having to stop by at google. To get it to work the following security measures must be present: 6-digit PIN device lock, remote wipe, certificate-based authentication, direct push, and online GAL lookup. Active sync contains all of these meas...

Anyone know of cell phones that may INCREASE in value?

I'm wondering if I should just go for the phones that really just look plain weird, or have a unique design to them

The phones that are really worth some change right now, at this second (various blackberries and palm pre) would never get their asking price in, say, 30 years from now, because all the value in those phones is the inovation, and inovation loses value when everyone ends up doing it.

Trying to think of something I know a bit about that I can collect, keep new in box, and would be worth some money for my kids or something. Laughing

Any suggestions?

High RF?

Does higher RF mean better signal?

Over time I’ve heard and read the Moto E815 is the reception king, but it’s not listed on the top 10 list.

Not to get side tracked though, Higher RF = better reception?

Need help phone not working Motorola

Well It started Wednesday. It would recieve phone calls, which I could answer by sliding it up, and recieve text messages. Problem I couldn't press any buttons only the power swich to turn it off and on. Nothing else would work... Then I turned it off the rest of the night Wendesday night, and the next day I messed with it a bit, and finally it started to work. Well I woke up this morning and it's not working... I can turn it off and on, and recieve calls, but still can access my v-mail, my text message, and I can't call out... I don't know what is wrong with it. I've only had the phone for maybe 6 months...

Smartphone without data plan... is this possible?

I tried answering this on the Phone Finder, but couldn't figure it out.

I need a new cell phone and so far, no one’s been able to “sell me” on the right one. The sales rep at T-Mobile gave me this website.

Here’s my situation:

I have a Palm PDA I use to manage all of my work appointments and contacts. I synch it to Outlook via USB each morning to update it. I am not important enough to need it synched in real-time. I also have a Razr cell phone and I don’t want to have 2 devices.

I have a $29.99 plan through Sprint which expires on 12/17. I’m completely open to changing service providers. I don’t text, I never go over the 200 minutes in my plan, and I don’t need 24-7 co...

ASCAP sues AT&T seeking royalties on ringtones heard in public

From 'the other guys' ... »

ASCAP, the group that collects royalties for singers, songwriters and performers, has filed suit against AT&T claiming that the carrier should pay a royalty each time a ringtone, composed or performed by one of its' 350,000 members, is heard in public. The group says that a ringtone is a public performance.

Not so fast says the Electronic Frontier Foundation. The EFF claims that a ringtone heard in a restaurant "without any purpose of direct or indirect commercial advantage," is exempt from copyright law. The EFF goes on to complain that a court ruling in favor of ASCAP could raise consum
