iPhone iPad iPod software update

There is a software update available for iPhone/iPad/iPod to version 5.1.
Here’s how to update. Please connect your iPhone or iPad to wireless network and power source before running the update.

In your iPhone/iPad/iPod, go to Settings, General, Software Update, and touch Install. If you already applied the software update, you will see a message “Your software is up to date”.  This will download the software update, automatically upgrade your iPhone/iPad, and restart. It will take 10-15 minutes to complete the software update.

After the software update, my iPhone now at 4G network, not sure if this will be the same for iPad.

I hope this help you.

UPDATE: I found out that after the software update, my iPhone is now using AT&T 4G. I checked some Verizon iPhone's, still using 3G. This is an excellent move by AT&T. Now, let me enjoy my iPhone at 4G network.

BlackBerry Setup using Office 365

HOWTO setup your BlackBerry phone using your Office 365 email?

My customer is using a Microsoft Online Business Productivity Online Services (BPOS), then transition to Office 365 (latest software as of March 2012). After the upgrade, the user can't read/send email. This is because the e-mail server is different from BPOS to Office 365.

Though setup using Office 365 is a lot easier because of a new autodiscover CNAME added to your company domain name host record.

If you are using Verizon service provider, go to this URL address: http://blackberry.net/go/vzw

Log-in using your username and password.
Delete your existing email configuration.
Setup an Email, select Add an existing email account (e.g. Yahoo, Google, Microsoft Exchange)
Enter your email address and password.

For example:
Email Address: johndoe@whaddya.com
Password: my password

Click Next to continue.
Completed.

The BlackBerry service will send you a message, coming from Activation Server with the email subject of "E…

Spiceworks Email Settings using Office 365

We use Spiceworks for Help Desk to create automatic service ticket when someone send email to our Help Desk email address. After transitioning from BPOS to Office 365, the email didn't work.

To save you some time of troubleshooting, here's how it works.

Before Office 365, I configured my Spiceworks using BPOS (business productivity online services). These services are powered by Microsoft. Here's the old setup.
