ATT Personal Web Page (attws.com/mymobileinternet). How does it Work?
I am interested in becoming an ATTWS GSM/GPRS customer. I am interested in using my phone to be able to view my address book and calander on my phone. I was reading on the ATT web site that through the mymobleinternet page one can sync the phone address book with Outlook on your computer. I was just wondering how this worked exactly? If you add a contact on your phone, can you wirelessly sync it with your personal web page on ATT's website? And then once you have access to your personal computer sync from the website onto your computer? Also is the information (ex. calendar) resident on the phone or is it accessed via a calandar feature in MMODE?
Also if there are any other interesting features on that personal web page, any additional info would be helpful.
I wish they had some sort of Demo feature, for the personal web page, but I could not find one.
I have been playing with this just this evening. I find the personal webpage pretty convienent. You can customise what appears on it, so you can have weather, news, stocks, whatever appear on the home page. You can sync the online calender, to do list and contacts with Outlook, and then access the info via your phone.
The downside is that as far as I can tell, all of this info resides on mMode and there is no way to download it into a PIM that is built into the phone. So if you want to check you calender you use up KBs. Not too big a deal if you just check it every now an then. And since the info is also available from any PC with a web connection you can easily check you calender when at home/work/school on a PC and not use your phone. I do wish you could just download it to the phone though. AT&T also offers something called Office Online that you might want to look into. This costs $2.99 extra a month, and as far as I can tell dosen't do much more than the free service, but it might be worth a look.
Office Online is actually a data package as well. According to the cust service rep, You pay $2.99 for office online and you are synced with real-time information using a client running on a PC.
In addition, the $2.99 is unlimited data while using Office Online. It's much better than trying to access your personal homepage or portal mail sites like yahoo or other POP3 sites where you will be charged per kb that you use.
$2.99 = unlimited usage for the office online site. Totally worth it! Works great for corporate networks too that may be behind a firewall
You're right. I just got off the phone with cust svc (again).
Turns out the salesman was exactly that. Sold me Office Online saying it was unlimited data access and would not be part of my data package, but that was not the case.
You are charged for all data that you use. In either case, it's still pretty great... I can leave the office, turn on my IM and setup an alert for my email. Not to mention reply to issues when I am away from the office or home. It's worth the cost to me.
Any idea if they will ever offer some sort of unlimited data package? It's not like you can download or view all that much stuff on the tiny screen anyways...
Does anyone know if Office Online will only sync with an Exchange server, or will it sync everything from my Outlook? I use Outlook 2002 with my hotmail, so the hotmail folders are shown separately from my Exchange Inbox, and hotmail doesn't go to my Exchange Inbox (since Hotmail is http and not POP3, there seems to be no way to set it up to do that).
I just got the T68i, it's excellent, and I'm trying to figure out how to maximize its potential. I'm sorting out the sync with my Palm right now (already sent SMS and dialed from it, but no email yet). Ideally I'd be able to set up some sort of sync with hotmail, which I use as my primary personal email. Any ideas?
