Got this in from reader, Matt.
I have an E62 which I’d like to have sync to our Groupwise system at work, which shouldn’t be a big deal as I already have Groupwise Mobile Server (which is based on Nokia IntelliSync).
However, before I go ahead and sign up for a somewhat expensive data package (welcome to Canada), I’d like to test out the client app and see how much data it’s likely to use. I don’t want to test over the air, as data rates as insane. The E62 doesn’t have WiFi, so I can’t test that way either. I don’t want to install the app to see if it has the option to sync only when tethered, just in case it decides to go sync my mailbox OTA first (that could get expensive). So I’m trying to think of options.
Ideally what I’d like to do is get a net connection back out via some other route (I’m thinking PPP over USB or Bluetooth via a PC) so I can actually test it out. But I’ve no idea if this is even possible.
Otherwise, I guess I could try installing it with the phone in Offline mode, just so I can see the app, but that’s not going to give me much idea as to how much data it’s likely to pass.
Before you suggest he gets 3… he’s from Canada.
What do you reckon?
