iPhone Problems With Exchange 2003 After Upgrading To iOS 4.2.1

iPhone users are reporting issues with Microsoft Exchange 2003 after upgrading to iOS 4.2.1 that was released by Apple last week.

The problem is compounded by the fact that there are actually two different issues affecting the same feature.

The first bug, and the more serious of the two is that calendar events that are created by users or the ones they have accepted disappear from the iPhone for no apparent reason. This means that users relying on ActiveSync could end up missing meetings, conference calls etc. The weird thing about this is that these events are still visible in Outlook or via the webmail interface.

Users are also reporting issues while accepting or declining an invitation. Users are reporting that they get an error message informing them that your message cannot be sent. While this bug might not be as serious as the first one, this could prove detrimental to people who work in fragmented groups and use this feature to track each others schedules and event plans for the day.

Send SMS to a Phone by Email

phone-sms-message-small Ever want to send an email to a phone? Some people NEVER respond to email, just text. While trying to find a text messaging by email solution this morning I found that each phone company has a email portal.  So, you can message per phonecompany or reach all phone companies through teleflip.com (see below.)

I had a specific need for a server alert system to send me a text should the server burp. But this is a great way to text someone from your desktop too. 

* Be sure of the recipients messaging plan because some people have to pay per text or have just so many messages in their plan.

(Note: For each carrier, I have included a link to a page with more detailed information on how SMS works with that carrier, how much it costs, and where you can find more information. In the list below, just click any carrier’s highlighted name to find out more. This info is subject to change.)

[10-digit phone number]@message.alltel.com
Example: 2125551212@message.alltel.com
