Beta for Windows Mobile experts

FYI - we're launching a new technology that allows you to easily deliver business intelligence reports including excel spreadsheets to BBerry, Treos (700w/700 windows OS), Pocket PC, and other smart phones. It will automatically format and deliver data such as key performance indicators, scorecards and dashboards.

This technology is easier to use and view on your mobile device than existing solutions.

We are looking for a limited number of advanced wireless device users (BBerry, Treos (700w/700 windows OS), Pocket PC, and other smart phones) to beta test.

Interested? (check it out! it's amazing!)

Audiovox SMT5600: Will Windows Mobile 5.0 work on it???

Hi everyone,

I have a couple questions regarding the SMT 5600:

1. Will Windows Mobile 5.0 work on it? If so, do tell! :-)

2. If not, does that mean NEVER? I'm getting the feeling that certain phones simply cannot handle Mobile 5.0 I need to know before buying the SMT 5600.

I really want the SMT's size and phone quality is fantasitic (at least that's what CNET says). But to not have Mobile 5.0 would be a major minus.

Inadvertant Dialing

I have the new Audiovox 6700 Smartphone and I love it. BUT - when I'm carrying it on my hip, it has a tendency to repeatedly dial the last number in my call history.

Is there any way to lock the keypad or buttons to prevent inadvertant dialing?

Thanks for any suggestions.

Best Windows Mobile Flip Style Phone?

Which Windows Mobile flip style phone is the most reliable?
Background info:
My contract with Nextel ends soon and I plan to change carriers. The choices for a new carrier are Cingular, Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile. I am interested in lots of phone features, but the top 3 are 1)Clamshell type phone, 2)Above average user-interface for the calendar, and 3)camera. I am partial to Motorola phones. Windows Mobile Smartphones appear to suit my interests best. I probably won't be able to wait more than a few weeks. Thanks for any suggestions.

E-Mail notification not showing on SMT 5600

Howdy. I bought an unlocked SMT 5600 that was set up on ATTWS and now have it set up on t-mobile. The ATTWS home screen that is still on the phone has an email notification section (below where it says "sms:1" it says "email: 1")... the only problem is the icons on the top of the screen are fixed and mmode is one of them and it drives me nuts. The other home screens (windows basic, windows default, etc.) do not have an e-mail notification on it. I even downloaded a different xml file that was designed to have it on there but it doesn't show up on my phone. Any ideas how to remedy this?

On a side note, is the home screen that Orange uses in the UK on the C500 available in XML format ? Is it floating around that anyone knows?
