New toy: iPhone 3G in white

by Volker Weber


So much has been written about the iPhone 3G already. What I am interested in is how well it works with Exchange. Will need a few days of testing ...


I know Bruce has it going with exchange - looking forward to seeing it in action.

My thoughts on a first time'r using an iPhone will be blogged this weekend.

Congratulation, mine was delivered today, too. Just spent 2 hours waiting on the T-Mobile hotline to get the SIM activated. Do you know whether Yahoo-Mail or Gmail are actual alternatives for a push mail service? I would not need pash calendar or contacts as it is a private device. Sync is OK for that.

I don't know whether the new software has IMAP IDLE. The old one did not.

Took less than 10 sec with Yahoo too the iPhone. I'll give it a try for some days, I guess. Won't set up an own Exchange server, according to my vita, it should be a Domino server, but lets don't talk about that...

On a less meaningful question, I see most people have black 3g iPhones. Do you think white looks better (personal preference I know)?

Ed Saipetch, 2008-07-18

As far as I know, there is still no support for IMAP IDLE.

Ed, no, I don't think white looks better. Both look nice.

Volker Weber, 2008-07-18

Ed, just thought it would go well with the white MacBook. And Andy, you are probably right for both Yahoo and Gmail.
