Windows Mobile Comm Manager Oddities

Windows Mobile Comm Manager

Windows Mobile communications related oddities continue to baffle me after a decade of using the product. Various versions of the Comm Manager (T-Mobile Dash version seen above) have been in all Windows Mobile 5 and 6 devices I’ve seen. And, yet, the ActiveSync button (7 in the screen cap above) does not consistently work across devices. It works fine (brings up ActiveSync on a T-Mobile Dash running WiMo6 and an HTC Advantage 7500X running WiMo5). But, it does nothing on an i-Mate K-JAM running WiMo5. Most people won’t be bothered by this. But, if you sync wirelessly using Bluetooth like I do, it is a small but annoying issue.
