    hey all,

    I posted this alsewhere, but perhaps it was in the wrong group, sorry for
    anyone reading it twice but I need to know kinda soonish.

    My company are offering me a mobile phone, I have always stuck with
    ericssons, and one of those offered is a T610.
    I have had a look around coz I am very interested in the bluetooth
    connectivity of it.

    Particularly this thing:-
    http://www.mostly-harmless-software.co.uk/mht610.htm

    What I would like to know, is if I were to get the phone, and install this
    thingie that gets my email over the bluetooth connection, will anything need
    to be installed on the phone ?

    Will my work find out I am putting apps on the phone, or does it not work
    that way ???
    If I do have to install on the phone, can it be removed without trace ?

    taken from the webpage :-
    'The software runs entirely on your PC. When started it detects the presence
    of your T610, and creates a menu under the Connectivity, Accessories menu on
    your phone'

    I dont really understand how bluetooth works, but does this mean when you
    turn off the application on the PC, there will be no trace left on the phone
    ?

    I was also interested in a simiilar thing for winamp, but I cant find it
    right now christofferson I think it was called, any links would be usefull,
    I seem to have lost it.

    thanks for any help in advance, my work are a bit funny about people using
    work phones for other things.

    I just use the built-in email client to fetch email from several accounts.

    Hmm. dito. However, i can't enter more than 300 characters in a reply to
    such emails, it appears to be limited in the firmware.
    Makes it unusable for email replies, IMHO. :-(

    From what I understand from the website you posted, it kind of works like
    this: The software you installed on your PC will check email and push it to
    your regular e-mail inbox on your phone. You can then read it off-line. So no
    charges from your phone provider.

    This also makes it not particulary useful.. When you are near an internet
    connected PC anyway then you can just read e-mails on your PC.. THough I
    suppose it would work for off-line email reading; like sync first and then
    read emails off-line when you're not near a PC.

    >I want it to be free so nothing will apear on my company bill.


    Frankly I think your company should have every interest to keep their staff
    connected to e-mail all the time. Look into it; If I ran a company that gave
    free phones to employees then I would want to make damn sure they use all
    available features which would very much include reading company e-mail while
    on the road. GRPS internet is not that expensive if you're only doing text
    based stuff like plain emails.

    Or what you could do is use your T610 with your own sim card so you can freely
    email and stuff and just plug your company sim card into some cheapo phone.

    Re: installing bluetooth email on a T610

    ok, I know it seems odd but the phone is just for when I am on call.
    At present all numbers would be barred apart from the office.

    It would be nice if all companies tried to make life easy for the workers,
    but unfortunately not all do (mine being one).
    I have concidered the sim option, but to keep the other sim on all the time
    I would need a dual sim adapter, I am a little worried about mucking around
    with the phone.

    I spend most of my time when I am not working, at the PC, but a lot of it
    just waiting for a reply from someone.
    From what I gather this prog would allow me to go about my business, making
    tea, watching telly and enjoying not being at wortk, and not have to go back
    to my PC every 5 mins to check for mail. I have a mate with a T68, which I
    have just been informed SHOULD work with the software, I am going to get him
    to come over and see if it works, and if it leaves a trace on his phone.

    Thanks all for your advice,
