Sync with Lotus Notes

I just bought an 8525 and cannot get it to sync with my work email. The Cingular specialist says Lotus Notes is not compatible with xpress mail or outlook. I cannot seem to just auto forward my emails to another account to get around it either. Anybody know a work around I might be able to use? thx

upgrade to 6.0

AT&T has listed the 8525 on its site as upgradeable to Windows Mobile 6.0 in Q3. This listing has the AT&T logo (versus the old cingular logo) actually on the phone. They are also selling on their site refurbished 8525's with the cingular logo on the phone but the description doesn't specifically say it is upgradeable. I contacted AT&T and asked if the refurbished ones can be upgraded. All I can get them to say is "it should be". Does anyone know definitively that the older 8525's can be upgraded or will it only be the newer versions with the new logo? (I am thinking maybe there is a firmware and/or other changes on this new logo phone).?? Thanks

OK, potentially dumb set of questions:
-I have more minutes and rollover than I could ever use
-I mostly call my wife, so those calls are free

Why would PTT be useful? I don't fully understand it's benefits, given the above? Thanks to all.

Buying phones on amazon?

I am ready to upgrade my account and buy the 8525. I noticed that Amazon had it for what seems like an impossibly low price compared to all the retail stores I have looked at. Has anyone had any experience with buying/upgrading phones from them or should I stick with an actual store?

Just Installed new ATT ROM and added Push2Talk

Has anyone else updated the ROM on there Cingular 8525/TyTn. The new ATT ROM seems to have some pretty good improvements.

So far for me its added the Push2Talk Feature which works really good as me and my friend both have the same phone and same update.

It also added better Bluetooth support and better Direct Push support.

So far So Good....

Any thoughts, anyone else used it? Using it?

Quick Java Question

I've read here on phone scoop that only some versions of the 8535 have java support. I haven't seen anything about which "versions" have it and which do not. Does the 8525 purchased through Cingular have java support and if not is there a way of installing J2ME on it?

Suggestions when updating the ROM

There have been a lot posts on sites about problems with the 8525 (or any other phone) after doing ROM updates. I thought I would share my process that may hopefully avoid some issues when doing updates.

To avoid any possible conflicts with hardware and software, try doing these steps.

1. Always backup critical data first
2. Remove any hardware from the device including any flash memory cards. I often even remove my SIM card. Restart phone if necessary.
3. Perform a HARD RESET to get the phone back to factory state. All phones vary on how this is done. Look in your manual or online for your model.
4. Make sure the phone is clear of all messages and at the ready.
5. Connect via USB to Activesync. DO NOT allow it to set up a profile....

Is anyone using Microsoft Voice Command?
1 - does it work thru the wired stereo earbuds
2 - do I have to have my phone unlocked and press one of the buttons (like voice dialing) to initiate a voice command?
