Re: No More Active Sync?
As an FYI--I had to contact them about my Google Apps not working right last weekend and they told me outright that they are going to start cutting off existing "grandfathered" connections soon too, like working for as soon as the next updates. Mine worked fine til the last update, and suddenly didn't. Then I ended up with a new phone anyway, so it's moot now. But my Apps account should have anyway, so I had to get that handled. That works fine again, but while I was working on that issue, I addressed the whole exchange thing and how I felt that was a bad idea, and they said they are prioritizing the app over all, and that all exchange will cease to work soon. When I pressed it is when the person went further on it.
I did give the app a whirl and I don't care for it, simply bec I prefer to use the app that came with the phone. But I hope that Apple gets on some kind of true IMAP/Push solution for Gmail users soon so I don't have to roll all my crap into my Apps account or ditch all Gmail stuff and roll my apps accounts back to my host again for real IMAP like it was before I switched it to Apps last year.
