HOW TO FIX YOUR Q!!!! (Or something less dramatic) Okay, I'm sure there are a bunch of people out there that have had this issue (god knows I've seen them), so I called VZW to complain about my Q acting up, and I finally received a solution that sounds like it might work (this is only for those of us that do NOT use Exchange ActiveSync). I will try to recreate it in a step-by-step process and give the explaination I was given at the end: (*) DISABLE WirelessSync (both Push/ReadySync) BEFORE starting this process (my bad for forgetting it until now... (1) Start -> Active Sync (2) Menu -> Add Server Source (3) Type in some random characters (does'nt matter). Push Next. (4) Radom character for User Name, Pasword, Domain. Push Next. (5) Uncheck all boxes (not sure if this is necessary). Push Finish. (6) Menu -> Schedule. Modify everything to "Manually", uncheck both checkboxes. Push Done. (7) Menu -> Options. Highlight Exchange Server. Menu -> Delete. Push Yes. (8) Home -> Start -> System Tools -> Task Manager -> Menu -> Kill All (remove any residual processes) So what did we learn in class today? Microsoft has let it leak that they screwed up the default distribution of the WM 5.0 Smartphone by setting the default times to check the exchange server every 10 min during peak times, every 4 hours during off-peak times. However, if no server is setup, it's not smart enough to not do anything, it just tries to connect to "nothing" (hence the "little PDA" in the upper right hand corner every 10 min.. you will still have some of it due to WirelessSync if you use it, but shouldn't be so regular). And it tries to connect to nothing every 10 minutes. I asked the VZW representative why there hasn't been an announcement or something to that effect informing uses and he said it's a Microsoft problem that even exists on the Dell Axim's and VZW's only telling people as they complain about it. He said that many technicians are attirbuting this not only to the infrequent (I guess 1 - 3 times a day is considered "infrequent" to them) lockups, but poor battery performance.
