Help with the new Samsung Omnia c alendar
      #36669 - 04/07/10 09:32 PM

My palm died and I've been trying desparately to find something that resembles it in regards to how the calendar color coding works. It looks like Windows Outlook 7 might be close. I've tried to get on every site that I could find to see how it would look like and work on the phone and so far your site was the closest in explaining how it works. But I can't actually see what it looks like on the cell phone from your website. My question is, using Windows Mobile 6.5 is the calendar that you'd use on your computer look the same in the cell phone? If not, is it easy to tell the difference between the two so that they make sense to one another? I'd appreciate some help with this because I can't live without my calendar, I need to upgrade my phone and need a PDA type device in order to organize my hectic lifestyle. thank you for your time

The calendar on a phone like the Omnia doesn't look exactly like desktop Outlook. Why? Because it's a mobile platform and it's impossible to replicate a large desktop interface on a phone screen. But it does have plenty of features and supports all the fields the Outlook desktop calendar does. And you can set categories and color code these. Is that what you wanted to know?

yes somewhat . . . I finally had a chance to look at one last night in a class I was in. The person told me that they are only using the calendar that came with the phone. She knew very little about it because she just got the phone. Is is true that the phone comes with a built in calendar and if you want the outlook calendar you have to add it in or something? I'm asking because she showed me the calendar on her phone and it looked nothing like the outlook. I understand that you told me that it wouldn't look like it but I would assume that it would have some of the built-in characteristics. thank you so much for getting back to me I can't begin to thank you . . . this has been quite an ordeal for me since January and I'm still without a phone. Can't wait for your reply.
