I use Lotus Notes for my email and calendar, and I have been trying to find out any info on how to get my Notes synced with my Pre. I just tried out CompanionLink (still in my trial period) and it seems to work nicely for a Notes-->Google-->Pre sync for my calendar, but what about Notes? I have read thru (and posted in) some of the existing forums here, but haven't gotten a firm answer. But then...
I was on the Sprint site and noticed at the bottom that it says: "Email includes use of Sprint Mobile Email, Microsoft Direct Push Technology via Active Sync, VersaMail, IBM Lotus Notes Traveler, or BlackBery Internet Services" .... I was like "What is IBM Lotus Notes Traveler?" I called up Sprint who had no idea about this and they actually transfered me over to Palm directly. After a few phone calls, a 15 minutes wait on hold, and a conference call with Sprint, here is what I found out:
1. To get my Notes Calendar on the Pre, they recommended a 3rd party app like CompanionLink (duh..i knew that already)
2. Palm said that at the moment, Pre does not support IBM Lotus Notes Traveler and they are not sure why Sprint in advertising this, but...
3. The Pre does (or rather, will) support this program, but only after it is added to the App Catalog
4. She has heard and assumes that because Sprint is adding this to their promotion info, that this will be included in an near-future update, but can not guarantee any timing on that
So, while I still don't really know how Notes Traveler will work or if it is even compatable with out Notes servers (I would hope so since they are IBM servers), this does sound promising that there may be an update soon, or at least a new App to support this soon!
Anyone else hear anything?
