2125Two hot Windows Mobile 5.0 devices on Cingular’s network look to be next in line for the MSFP, or Messaging and Security Feature Pack as everyone but Verizon knows it. The upgrade will provide Direct Push e-mail to both the 8100-series handheld as well as the 2125 Smartphone, which is a sweet-looking device. The MSFP also adds Task synchronization and Global Address Lookup for those that synch to an Exchange server; note that your Exchange server must be running SP2 for full support of these features.

Cingular customers will see the upgrade available on June 19th; Verizon XV6700 customers are expected to continue crying for some time after that.

  2. Oh yes, about time. The 8125 will be pleased…

  3. I’m confused. I just set up an 8125 for a user today and fought with GoodLink until I got her Exchange Mail working. I thought I WAS setting up the push stuff? Or is this another brand of link-up? My own PPC-6700 (which, as far as I can tell, is the same device with Sprint branding) should be in my hands tomorrow or the next day, but GoodLink would cost me 3 times as much, so I won’t get to try it. I’ll ham to with for Mobile Information Server, if its still running. :(

  4. Goodlink is push but it is an additional program while the MSFP is part of the OS. (and Goodlink costs more over and above the cost of the exchange server.) I went to Goodlink a couple of months back and have been really happy with it. It is so reliable that I’ll stick with it.

  5. Oh, then perhaps when my PPC-6700 arrives (any day now), I won’t be left out of the game or forced to resort to Server ActiveSync, if it still works. GoodLink would cost me 3 times what it cost my user per year (more than the doggoned phone!), so I won’t be having any of that. I suppose it will all depend on my sysadmin.
