Assuming that you have the data plan for smartphones, then there will be no additional charges for using Xpressmail. If you do not have a data plan (because you're account is grandfathered and has the requirement waived) then accessing Gmail and Xpressmail, you will be billed at whatever rate was set in your account (usually $0.01/kB.) This is regardless of whether you're...

I'm just curious: you have a Microcell, which means you have home broadband, but didn't install WiFi at home? I would think that WiFi would give a better internet speeds than 3G, especially after reading this thread where the person is saying their upload speeds are limited by the Microcell. If you don't have home WiFi, then it would seem to me to be a worthwhile investme...

Sorry for not responding back sooner. My previous phones before I started using PDA devices was a Sony T616, a Motorola T720, Motorola V80 and a LG C500. All are roughly the same as far as calendar features are concerned. Just a basic "Meet John at Starbucks" type appointment is fine. But a PDA phone makes this easier by allowing you to pull up the person from your phoneb...

In my experience, PDA phone have more features in their calendars. Windows Mobile devices, since they are designed to sync to Outlook for Windows, tend to have to support many of the feature found in Outlook, like reminders and meeting invites, etc. A non-PDA phone tends to have "basic" calendars. While all can create an appointment and make a reminder notification, Windo...

Other than blocking texting completely, you could use Smart Limits . Smart Limits is not free, but at least it's a fixed cost and you wouldn't get a surprise bill.

The difference is moot. AT&T's Terms of Service say you must only use the proper data plan for whatever device you're using. The Terms of Service you agreed to when you signed up with AT&T. They detected that you had put your SIM in an iPhone, but didn't have an iPhone data plan.

If the other options don't work for you, you can try something that one of my friends did. Set your default ringtone to a "blank" or "silent". You may have to record a few seconds of nothing to make a silent ringtone. Then set the people in your address book to any non-silent tone. That way you never have to set your phone to silent, yet anyone you know will ring though. ...

In general, no. MMS needs a data connection to AT&T through the cellular network. Some carriers allow you to use email to send MMS to someone. For example, if someone sends email to 10digit@mms.att.net, it will send the email as a MMS to whoever's number is 10digit. (Or send a SMS to 10digit@txt.att.net.) However, you will still not be able to receive MMS without cellular...

Correct, you have unlimited family texting so all incoming and outgoing text messages are free. (Or rather, you've already paid for it.)

For VPN you'd be pretty much limited to Windows Mobile devices. But, I've not been completely successful with the built-in VPN clients. You'll more than likely need to buy a Windows Mobile version of whatever VPN software you need. (Usually not cheap either.) As for TS, the built-in TS client in Windows Mobile devices only gives you a resolution equal to the size of the W...

The IM software included with AT&T branded phones uses text instead of data. So as long as your phone is AT&T branded, you should be ok since you have the 200 messaging plan. Be aware that each IM message in and out counts against the 200. So you'll stil probably need to be careful about going over if you IM a lot. If you installed some other IM program, then that very li...

A booster is also known as a repeater. You'll want one that uses both the 850MHz & 1900MHz bands, as AT&T uses both. Some of the repeaters only work on 1900, so read carefully before buying. There are quailty units from Cellantenna and Wilson Electronics . Good units normally start in the $400-$500 range. I'm wary of some of the lower cost ones being sold because the hous...

Take a look at this PC Magazine article . They suggest some programs like Bitmeter, WANWatch and Bandwidth Meter. The article focus' on desktop and DSL/cable usage, but I would think the programs would work for any internet usage. I personally have not used any of those programs so I cannot say which to use. I just happened to see the article recently.

The "buzzing" is inherent with GSM technology and unshielded wiring. The simplest and most effective thing you can do would be to "move something." Try moving the speakers and speaker wiring, even just a little. Sometimes just an inch or two makes a big difference. Since the Mercury is USB, try moving the Mercury to another USB port, if available, or get a USB extension ca...

It is 5GB total usage. So both upload and download combined needs to be 5GB or less per month.

VoIP is allowed . More specifically, it's not prohibited at this time. Just note that with a Data Connect plan, you're limited to 5GB per month. So if you talk a lot and you want to surf a lot, you'll want to keep an eye on your usage to make sure you stay under 5GB. I doubt you'd have a problem with voice only VoIP calls, but a lot of video calls could be an issue.

Correct, the 3125 when it was still being sold, would use Smartphone Connect as the proper data plan. Since the 2125, 3125 and other non-keyboard Smartphones are not being sold anymore and Smartphone Connect is no longer availalable, you can use a MediaNet data plan. (Confirmed by AT&T on a previous thread.) AT&T's definition is phones with a full keyboard need the PDA dat...
