Google[edit]

Hi there, google added activesync for calendar and contacts (mail: "not yet")(on iPhone, at least), maybe one should add it somehow.. dunno where it'd fit though. Regards, J —Preceding unsigned comment added by 130.83.244.131 (talk) 15:13, 30 June 2009 (UTC)

Windows Mobile Device Centre?[edit]

Hello, does anyone think we should make a WMDC article seperate from this ActiveSync article? --Illyria05-- 21:35, 21 December 2006 (UTC)

"Disadvantages"[edit]

Anyone else think the Disadvantages section is a bit lacking?

I get the impression it was just added by someone who was annoyed with Activesync, or perhaps an anti-MS fanboy. Jackster (talk) 20:58, 15 July 2008 (UTC)

I like it, by it didn't work on my computer (Windows XP SP2 <-> Windows Mobile 6.0). This is the main disadvantage :) -- AKA MBG (talk) 20:40, 16 July 2008 (UTC)

How about the well-known impossibility to turn it off? See e.g. here; there exist several tools to disable and/or unload ActiveSync. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 87.244.233.12 (talk) 18:40, 25 April 2011 (UTC)

New icon?[edit]

It appears the ActiveSync icon was replaced with an SVG. I don't think the SVG looks completely like the actual icon. I remember the old one being more glossy or something but I don't have the program on hand to check it out. What was wrong with the PNG? And also, if that SVG isn't the actual icon, may as well release it under a free license. Althepal (talk) 02:01, 23 September 2008 (UTC)

Oversimplification[edit]

This article suggests that activesynce enables communication between and desktop and a pda. It says the program works for windows mobile and non-windows mobile devices including the iphone.

Actually Activesync can enable between a desktop and a pda OR between an exchange server and a pda. A palm or windows mobile device can exchange data with a desktop via a usb cable. Activesync on a desktop GageParker (talk) 00:42, 1 January 2009 (UTC)will not recognize an Iphone connected by a usb. Apple only licenced Activesync for Exchange Server.

Included with Windows?[edit]

What is the source for such information? I don't remember ActiveSync being bundled with the OS. 85.242.16.16 (talk) 14:21, 4 January 2013 (UTC)
