    Exeter. I only found this. http://as.exeter.ac.uk/it/email/shar...-mailaccounts/

    Honestly it's not that big a deal and you don't need to go through all this trouble.

    RSJ, I tried that but it said something about the servers not responding.

    Thank you
    Wow, seems very complicated. You need to set up a VPN to access email off campus. Not much chance of pushing it to phone tbh.... vould make a new gmail account and forward your uni email to that, then set up the new account on your phone...

    This could become a society at this rate :p:

    So HTC has 3 phones so far - Magic, Dream and Hero. Anything else?

    Sony Ericsson also seem to be releasing an Xperia 3 operating the android OS.

    Samsung have the Galaxy.

    I heard Motorola have one in the making also.

    Also the Hawaii.

    Then there are the rumoured Dell and Archos devices/phones.

    Add to that Asus and Lenovo, whatever they are planning to make with android.

    Ok that's off the top of my head, anything else?
    Don't forget the HTC Wildfire. I would tap that.

    My ****ty Blackberry won't work so I'm now looking for a replacement. Android methinks.

    Which should I get:

    HTC Wildfire
    Samsung Galaxy Europa
    Sony Ericsson X10 Mini PRO

    I'm worried about the europa's wi-fi. Is it true the wi-fi is shi*

    My main feature I want is 3G and FM Radio. I would also like to develop and test apps on my phone. GPS is non essential but certainly a bonus

    Firstly can I ask what is your budget because then we could start to look for some better phones because imo they all aren't brilliant mainly because resolution is so small. From the reviews that I have read of the wildfire (my dad wanted one so I have done quite a bit of research) quite a few android apps are unavailable for the above phones because of the small resolution and it also makes web browsing quite difficult. Also, the poor proccessor will mean it takes quite a while for web pages to render and will also struggle rendering games. Add to this the fact that all are on ARMv6 architecture and I can see as we move into the future some apps becoming dependent on ARMv7 architecture, (Currently fennec for v7 is in beta but v6 is still in nightly build stage)

    That said though, they do make excellent budget phones if all you want is a a phone for basic phone activities

    Im selling my Bberry for £62 at CEX. I'm banned completely no go back on ebay and amazon.

    I have other money saved. So you mean certain apps won't work on these phones?

    All I am trying to say is that the screen is too small that it is unsupported for certain apps such as angry birds

    Mail > Menu button > New account > Exchange ActiveSync Account.

    Then press the manual setup button.
    Details you need are:
    Email address: [your email address]
    Server address: owa.ex.ac.uk
    Domain: isad
    Username: [your uni username e.g. JABloggs]
    password: [your uni password]

    Finally, tick the SSL box and press next. It should work from there.

    I got these instructions from this page:
    http://as.exeter.ac.uk/it/email/other/
    And also adapted this PDF to apply to Android instead of iPhone:

    Works for me.

    AS DOES CRONOS FROYO 1.5.1!!!! :woo:

    Everything works so much better! Especially the Gallery; no more bugs or weirdly positioned text :top:

    I got Angry Birds and some other things. APKTor is pretty cool.
