Hi there

I just got an SP5 (yay!) - but all I can find is the direct push thing! I can't find where to disable that, and turn ON the old SMS send-it-via-email thing, which was in pre-AKU2.

Anyone know how to turn it back on? the DirectPush thing is, um, rather expensive for Data, right?

You can't change this behaviour. Windows Mobile AKU2 devices will be offered only the option of Direct Push, while older versions (Windows Mobile 5 and Windows Mobile 2003) will see the SMS-initiated push technology.

If you get to a data plan with at least 15MB you should be covered for all traffic you need (except of course the e-mails themselves).

OK. I'm on a 15meg one.... pity about that. The SMS one worked REALLY well, and I dont need it to be Crackberry-immediate.

Ta for that.
