    Hi, had a fairly good look through previous months posts but just saw this and wondered if you were aware of any telco’s now providing AKU 2 phones yet, type and which telco??? (other than O2)

    Just spoke to Orange and T Mobile, what a waste of time, it still staggers me that such a massive corporate feature (push email)and their staff are still totally ignorant about it and there appears to be absolutely no internal literature for them!! Everyone said qtr1 but I think they got the year wrong 😉

    I noted a couple of folks mentioning about T mobiles possibly imminent MDA Vario II (replacement for HTC Wizard), and I spoke to Orange about SPV M600 (HTC Prophet) but am none the wiser as to AKU2 builds etc.  Any news or info greatly appreciated.

    I am also getting increasingly frustrated with network operators with regards to their inability to understand Push Email.  All I want is for them to have read the same press releases that I have!

    Anyway, great to hear that O2 have released the update, but having spoken to them today, they do not appear to have any tariffs to go along with it.  I was just told that email traffic would be billed as standard GPRS at 2.35 a meg.  Surely they must have something in the pipeline to compete with the email tariffs from Vodafone & Orange.  Does anyone know for sure??

    Have just sucessfully installed AKU2 on my XDA Mini S. Still having a few teathing problems with Remote Wipe but otherwise very good! One observation though  – my deleted items with Oulook Email on the XDA claims 99999! deleted items despite being empty!
