On Sunday, Microsoft's My Phone service for Windows Mobile, which was launched in a closed Beta back in February, was not be available to enable deployment of a service upgrade. And now we officially know why, even if the Google Adsense ads on the::unwired spilled the beans already: The My Phone Beta is now open to all users which means no more waiting list or promotional codes to get access to! Microsoft just completed upgrading the My Phone web portal as well as over the next few weeks, companion software for Windows Phones will be updates too. The updated web site includes 19 additional languages, a video demo on the welcome page as well as a number of other improvements.

Microsoft My Phone is a cloud service which provides 200 MB of free storage space and syncs critical information (e.g., contacts, calendar appointments, tasks, text messages, photos, videos, etc.) on a user's mobile phone to a password protected web site. Once synchronized, people can easily back-up and restore mobile phone data. My Phone provides an easy to use web portal where people can access and manage content on the phone, and share that information with others.

Cheers ~ Arne

hi Arne, you wrote some time ago on tips to connect the i780 Samsung smart phone GPS. i have owned mine sine July 2008 and have never really tried the gps until now. in your notes you say to turn on the radio function but i do not have this available - i ahve also checked the samsung website ( and there is no FM radio feayure on the specs page. help - i am at a loss and have asked samsung call centre and i got the run around blaming everything & everyone rather than focus on the product functions.

Hi wally23,

And welcome to the::unwired forum  big_smile

I had a i780 month ago and I don't think there it has a build in FM radio. But I may be mistaken.

To use GPS you do not need to turn on any FM radio. I think Arne meant radia waves in general. The i780 has a GPS assistent which you can find in the settings. Also there is a trial version of Route 66 (or another navigation software) shipped with this phone. Just install it and GPS will be automatically activated. Remind that you may have to wait 5 to 10 minutes to get a fix (which means you GPS reciever knows his position).

Hope this helps a little bit

Gday Heinz
