    Interesting that the bit in red says "not every phone will upgrade". I wonder what their criteria is, as that differs from what they previously said?

    On a side note, I hope Microsoft will allow users to change all tile colours in Windows 10 if they wish. Some of us are OCD and don't like multi-coloured unicorn vomit Start Screens. Adding say Skype or MixRadio to the Start Screen screws with my uniform red icons, so I just keep them in the all apps list instead.

    No joke: *Biggrin

    activesync via bluetooth for imate PDAL


    I discovered your post in search of a solution to the EXACT same problem, you have described. I too, have a Sprint Mogul running Windows Mobile 6 and ActiveSync 4.5. I was able to use Blutooth ActiveSync successful with my Dell Inspiron 6400/E1505 notebook,
    which had a built-in Toshiba Bluetooth module and used the Toshiba Bluetooth Stack. However there were conflicts with a particular bluetooth barcode scanner I wanted to use and the Toshiba bluetooth stack. The manufacturer stated that I would have to uninstall
    the Toshiba Bluetooth Stack and install the Win XP embedded Bluetooth Stack or another more compatible stack. So, I purchased a Zoom bluetooth dongle and installed the IVT
    BlueSoleil version stack manager that came with the dongle. I was able to get two other devices to work in bluetooth mode, but could no longer use ActiveSnyc to syncronize my Sprint PPC-6800
    Mogul Pocket PC with bluetooth.

    I liked the BlueSoleil software and after much trial and error have determined that the PDA finds BlueSoeil (serial port), which only shaows the available sevices as "Personal Area Networking" and "Object Push", which is like ActiveSync. There is no serial
    port service listed as available. It appears that the PDA finds Bluesoleil, but is not translated to an ActiveSync serial port, even if both ports match.

    I uninstalled IVT BlueSoleil 3228 and have now installed their
    newest version BlueSoleil 5.05. As before all other bluetooth devices work fine, but not ActiveSync. I have tried and re-tried the many scenarios that were listed in other posts, but remain unsuccessful.

    Please reply with any progress you may have accomplished in making an AvtiveSync bluetooth connection.

    Thank You,

    I had to ditch my Lumia 920 when I switched to Verizon a few months ago and now I have the HTC One M8 Windows phone. I really hope we get the same connectivity and integration as the Lumia Windows phones....

    I apologise for answering my own post, however it appears that it's OEMs and carriers that could be the problem, rather than a technical reason why not all Windows 8 handsets may be upgradeble to Windows 10.

    Lumia Phones and Windows 10

    I recently bought a Lumia 635 and am so pleased, especially with the integration. With my Windows 8.1 Phone, I can operate my home computer via the Teamviewer app. My OneNote files are synced, have access to OneDrive, and can access MyCloud. I like my new girl friend, Cortana, also.

    One can upgrade from a dumb phone to a Windows smartphone with little cost with some "smart" shopping.
    Example: Walmart had a special and I bought the phone for $39.99. I am an AT&T GoPhone customer. My dumb phone cost me $10/month average. It still costs me the same with my Lumia (no contract/data plan).
    There are plenty of WiFi hot spots in my area if I need to connect when away from home.

  9. Well I've been quite surprised by how well I've been able to upgrade my Lumia, it's only the first entry level phone they made the 520. It now runs Denim and I have Cortana working, mind you I'm due to upgrade in the next couple of months.

    My carrier is Vodafone and the phone didn't cost me anything, got it free for taking out a contract which only cost a couple of pounds more a month than I was paying for PAYG. I've been very pleased with it and will definitely get another Lumia. *Biggrin
