Exchange Users on Orange

Recommended Posts

I am really keen on this handset but had a quick question for anyone who is using Exchange for push email on Orange......

My last O branded handset was a M3100 and getting push email to work was, to be frank, a right royal pain in the ar$e! Orange would not let you install unsigned certificates on the device and as our exchange server uses a self signed certificate this caused several headaches to circumvent! So, my questions are:

  • Does anyone know if this is a general O security setting and therefore an issue on this device?
  • Is there any easy work around that doesnt involve any changes to our Exchange server?
  • Would I be better off loading a HTC ROM and if so are there any about?

Any pointers would be greatly appreciated, I actually think I favour the new ROM approach given that I recently needed to unlock an M3100 and decided to go the whole hog and load WM6 on it too and realised just how simple it was! Although doing it to a brand new device does worry me slightly!

Orange might not let you - but if you app unlock first you should have no problem. As your company is paying you're obviously not worried about data charges - otherwise you'd use T-Mobile!

It is my company so me paying :( I actaully have a good data deal with O (provided I can keep it when I upgrade!) so I think I am one of the lucky ones! Is this handset easy to unlock?
