    I took that as the physical phone number used to be on T-Mobile but has been ported over to Verizon so he could active the phone making his old phone not work and thus can't get e-mail on it.

    Ahhh... That could be it!

    I was thinking that BB doesn't use the same ports on the firewall as ActiveSync. So unless they are using SSL for OWA, as you mentioned, he could be in trouble until he get 443 opened and a certificate.

My 700W looks really neat, works as a phone, but my communication with work is now lost.

    Is there something I can do temporarily over the weekend to get me back in the loop? Any over-the-air sync I can configure? I have to admit, I dunno much about ActiveSync, can I install it on my desktop at work, and have it punch an outbound hole in our firewall to sync this sucker wirelessly?
    Are you able to access your corporate email with OWA?

    It so:

    1) Open ActiveSync (preferably using Voice Command )
    2) Select the menu softkey, and then select "Configure Server"
    3) For "server address", plug in the server address (don't add the https:// or anything after the .com, just xxx.xxx.com)
    4) Select the SSL checkbox if you have to use https:// in the browser to get to OWA
    5) Select Next softkey
    6) Plug in your email, password, and domain

    You should be able to sync....

    I typically select the "email" item , click settings, and limit the email size to "all" so that I get the whole message.

    Also, from the activesync screen, you can select "Schedule" and set the sync schedule to "As Items Arrive". This will use SMS messages to force your device to sync. This may be sufficient for your test group until you've got MSFP on the device

    HalM - By 'number port' I mean, control of my phone number was passed from TMobile to Verizon. I can probably call TMobile on Monday and get a new SIM inbound with a new number registered, or even flip flop it back. Regardless, my blackberry is without service as the number was ripped from it by my activation of the 700W.

    Weaweil - The firewall portion has not been completed, we are not quite ready for external OWA access. That is why Im wondering if I can activesync with the desktop driving it through the firewall.

    ebadger - not quite yet, but its good news and I will definitely hop on the completion of our OWA access externally next week. Am I S.O.L. for the time being?

    You also failed to mention the 8700 doesn't make that sucking sound the Treo makes draining the battery when automatically polling for email every 5 or 10 minutes. I wasn't able to make it a full day on my Treo. Can go two full days on the 8700, although I do recharge it every night.

    You can probably bounce your inter mail to an external POP account and retrieve it from there, but as far as ActiveSync with Exchange? You are, in fact, S.O.L.

    And since you are going to have to talk with your IT guys for OWA, make sure they use a certificate vendor that is already built into the phone. MUCH EASIER. And I don't remember you saying this so please forgive if you did: Your shop is running Exchange 2003 and not some downlevel version?

    If you have outlook on your desktop that is connected to your exchange server, you can set it up to sync via the cradle until you've got the OWA up.
    Also, if you have a BT adapter on the PC, you can set up the Treo to sync over BT. Other than that, you're out of luck until you've got the OWA up unless you sync through a POP mailbox like gmail or something

    I really hope you are kidding...

    If you have Outlook Web Access up and running at your org. (and if you don't you should be fired for all the other upgrades you've claimed to have done without enabling it), you just need to input the OWA url and your authentication info appropriately and you are all set for manual and scheduled OTA (over the air) syncs...

    (While you are sitting around moaning about your predicament, take a few minutes and read the user guide (here's a tip, try pages 74-76 of the printed edition; or pages 81-83 othis pdf: http://www.palm.com/us/support/handb...700wvzw_ug.pdf)

    AUTD using SMS would require that you actually setup some additional infrastructure that you haven't mentioned, so I would assume that is not an option for this weekend.

    *******, ***** and Fired. Im having a good weekend in this thread! whee!

    Thanks for those offering suggestions, I'm going to bounce my mail out via deliver to alternate recipient and make a contact for my fastmail.fm addy and that should be good enough for the time being. We'll get the remainder of our infrastructure in place soon enough, just waiting on some firewall mods.

    I didn't think that was unclear. The 8700c that you praised so highly. That is the device I have decided against, and all it took was a few minutes playing with it to see that, for my needs, it is inferior in every way.
    That's what I was thanking you for.
    Go here if you're tired of being .
    It'll be fun.

    One last suggestion for you. I believe the 700w comes with Verizon Wireless Sync. While I have never used the product, what I read says that you download a client piece and it will redirect your desktop e-mail to your device. You might give that a try first.

    Yep. I now agree with you. Instant email is garbage. Much better to wait for 10 minutes or not get it at all. Who needs email anyway? Not me. No sir.

    I'm not knocking your precious damn email. I said "for my needs". Are you illiterate as well as single-minded?

    Probably.

    I heard he has someone read his instant email for him.

    So there's probably a delay there.
    I'm back!

    [QUOTE=mobileman]I carried a 7100t around with me for 4 months. I think its fine for mobile email and just about nothing else. Found I missed the touchscreen to much and not being able to edit excel spreadsheets (without buying an overpriced 3rd party app).

    If you think Blackberries are so great, why are you on this board?

    Just FYI in case anyone isnt up on the stock market aspect of RIMM vs PALM, RIMM stock price is down about 20% from a year ago (in Nov it was down 30%)

    Many RIMM shareholders are losing their &%%$ and are fearfull of losing even more of their ^%$# as the Treo 700 continues to gain steam. IMO many of them are posting here and on other Palm/Treo blogs bashing away at the Treo 700 in hopes of slowing down the Palm Treo 700.

    Call me crazy, but from his post, it appears he's DEFENDING Treos, not ATTACKING them.

    You may want to reread his post again.
    I'm back!

    My yearly maintenance contract with RIM is zero. I don't have one. You don't need one!!!
    You retard. Did you miss that bit about other apps?
