PDAs and Smartphones
ITS provides only limited support for Personal Data Assistants (PDAs) and smartphones (including Blackberries).
We recommend that any PDA or smartphone uses the Windows Mobile 5 operating system. This works seamlessly with Siena's technology environment and is easy to set-up and maintain. It also allows you to access your Outlook calendar and address book in addition to e-mail.
ITS can provide support and advice on setting up your connection if you use these devices (See "Configuring your PDA" below). Contact your wireless provider for information about which models they offer with Windows Mobile, or check the Windows Mobile Webpage.
ITS will install software on Siena-owned computers for devices with other operating systems (Palm OS, Blackberry). However, we don't have the resources to provide technical support. Contact your vendor if you have problems.
With a personal smartphone or PDA that does not run Windows Mobile, see the E-mail Software Configuration information.
To set up your e-mail, calendar, and contacts on your Microsoft Mobile 5 PDA, tap on "Start," "Programs," and run "ActiveSync." Select "Menu," and "Configure Server." The screens below will display:
Once you have clicked "Finish," ActiveSync will download your e-mail and contacts to your PDA.
PDA Password Protection
To set up password protection (Microsoft Mobile):
Your phone will now use the PIN on startup and after the time limit you selected.
For other smartphones/PDAs, refer to your users manual.
