OK in new to the Geekzone but not to PDA's, I bought a 6600 with bluetooth and have my own business, can my secretary send files from my office computer while im on the road to my pocket pc???

If so how and can i attach a file with a text message???

If my secretary has a appointment change can she update my pocket pc's schedule (microsoft outlook) on the road or do i have to cradle it???

thanks so much for reading my troubles

Brad

This question has lots of answers...

can my secretary send files from my office computer while im on the road to my pocket pc???
If she sends an e-mail to your own e-mail account you can receive the file, certainly.

Instead of relying on e-mail perhaps you should look into Laplink Everywhere... Check our review.

If so how and can i attach a file with a text message???
Yes, when sent as an e-mail, not a SMS

If my secretary has a appointment change can she update my pocket pc's schedule (microsoft outlook) on the road or do i have to cradle it???
There is a remote ActiveSync facility, but some operators block the ports used for this, and ActiveSync 4 actually removes this functionality. So I recommend instead to use Exchange Server and ActiveSync directly to the server. The synchronisation can be while in the cradle, or ove-the-air (OTA), i.e. through a cellular connection (in your case CDMA).

There are a couple of hosted Exchange solutions around. Check a company called 4Smartphone for example (no I am not associated with them).
