Last week, Microsoft and Cingular announced to support Microsoft's MSFP Push E-Mail feature from now but existing Cingular 8125 Pocket PC Phone Edition and Cingular 2125 Smartphone customers couldn't used it yet because the required ROM update - which includes Microsoft's Windows Mobile AKU 2 - wasn't available so far.
Now, Cingular has released the AKU 2 ROM update for the Cingular 8125 which can be downloaded without any further charges from Cingular.
Please note, that - as with all ROM updates - also this update will delete all applications, data and settings on your device. Please make sure you have a copy of all your Outlook data on your PC but don't use a backup software for installed applications, since these kind of ROM updates also changes some parts of the Registry, etc. Better install all your applications again, after you've updated the device.
Interesting enough is the fact, that the download is provided and hosted by HTC America, not by Cingular itself.
Coming soon you will be also able to update your Cingular 2125 device. Check back in the future for the firmware update notices.
