It also does not allow for screen to adjust to BlackBerry size, it takes ages to move around in your office desktop. The Remote Desktop for Mobiles on the other hand does, it makes a tiny version of your desktop, and it even has a zoom tool to help you read. I recommend it hands down and believe me 30 is not a lot to spend for this fumctionality. I am a systems admin, and the first day i used while on vacation saved me a trip to the office from 3 hrs away.
This is their link:
You can download a trial version and test it first. Good luck.
I was super stoked on this, until I read the blackberry site about my Nextel 7520. I found this:
GSM™/GPRS networks allow you to maintain a virtual connection to the wireless network for data services. GPRS (General Packet Radio Service) is a packet switched network, designed for wide-area data communication and GSM offers high quality mobile voice services. GSM/GPRS networks are operated by Cingular Wireless and T-Mobile in the United States, and by Rogers™ Wireless in Canada.
Devices that operate on GSM/GPRS networks: BlackBerry 5810, BlackBerry 6210, BlackBerry 6710, BlackBerry 6230, BlackBerry 6280, BlackBerry 7100g, BlackBerry 7100r, BlackBerry 7100t, BlackBerry 7210, BlackBerry 7230, BlackBerry 7280, BlackBerry 7290, BlackBerry 7730, BlackBerry 7780.
The Mike™ Network uses a packet-based platform, the integrated Digital Enhanced Network (iDEN™) technology. This all-digital technology is designed to provide high quality sound and trasmission nationwide. The Mike Network is operated by TELUS in Canada.
Devices that operate on the Mike Network: BlackBerry 7520, BlackBerry 7510.
Can someone confirm for me that this app will NOT work on my Nextel 7520 because it uses iDEN and not GSM/GPRS? Thanks.
Also, anybody know of this kind of app that will work with iDEN? I am a systems admin as well and this kind of app would be awesome.
