Default 4.2 OS- Does it provide instant email and reconcile with Yahoo??

Please Login to Remove!

I noticed a post regarding Yahoo and Cingular now working together on OS 4.2 but I need more info.

I currently have my domains hosted by Yahoo and route it thru Gmail for instant e-mail. I still have the old BIS (V1.8) and use a custom setup developed to get instant e-mail - with this I have no reconcile features.

Has anyone been able to check if Yahoo e-mail addresses will provide reconciliation with the BB on Cingular BIS with this OS? Does it also provide instant e-mail?

I realize I would have to upgrade to BIS v2.0 but do not want to do that unless it provides these features.

Thanks for any and all input,
JP

The handheld OS won't affect these things. It's BIS that matters -- not your device OS.

Thanks, I was sure I read a post discussing that as a bonus to 4.2 and I can't find it now. My error-your answer makes sense.

I appreciate the info.

As a follow up question: I have been using my current setup for a long time and have not been following any threads regarding reconciliation between Cingular BIS and Yahoo- is it now available- has anything changed? When BIS 2.0 came out I was under the understanding that keeping my current Gmail workaround was the best bet but that was long ago.

Thanks again for the info and any follow up as well,
JP

This is a bump of this thread so anyone viewing over the weekend can see it and give me any insight if they have it.

thanks,
