Smartphone Setups

We're currently supporting two types of smartphones: Windows Mobile 6 phones and Blackberrys. If you get one of these phones with a voice/data plan and plan to sync email, calendar, etc over the air, you should be aware that the setup for each type of phone is different.

In particular, no matter who you get your phone through, Blackberrys sync through the Blackberry Enterprise Server run by ISU's Information Technology Service. There is a one-time setup charge for access to the server. Before you can activate your phone for data, you will need to apply for access to the Blackberry Enterprise Server (BES). Note: read the section on filling out the form carefully as there are some fields that must be completed.

Complete instructions for Blackberry setups and Windows Mobile 6 setups are available online.
