  1. Does Yahoo! Go work properly with the new 3G RAZR from Cingular? When I attempted to install (for instance) GMaps on one of the demo units at a Cing store in Mountain View, it asked to make a connection literally every time it transmitted or received a chunk of data. Unless there’s some model for trusted apps to get unlimited network access (which is probably the point, with a hefty fee for that trust authentication), I don’t see J2ME apps being viable on that phone…which is a shame, because Y!Go has the look of something that could be a cheap and easy substitute for a lot of what the iPhone is meant to do…

  2. Not sure Jon. I don’t use Motorola phones, thanks to their ultra crappy UI.

    The problem might be with the phone locked to the Cingular network, which has some peculiarities.

  3. Too bad they aren’t yet supporting EXISTING HTC phones though, or at least not my 8125. Disappointing to see an HTC press release but still no support.

  4. you ought to play with Yahoo! go for S60 (mostly Nokia phones) already for year – just download .sis file from link at bottom of page and install it on S60 phone… It will sync Yahoo address book with your phone address book, and then continuously deliver mail in same Income folder where SMS-es usually coming, and also updating your inbox at their mail server upon deletion or read of mail on phone. I played with it recently and it works Ok so far.

  5. This Just In From Yahoo PR:

    The service will be available on T-Mobile Dash at the end of April/beginning of May.There are roughly 75 Windows Mobile supported phones today and right now Yahoo! is supporting about 1/3 of those, with that number increasing rapidly.

    Yahoo! has been getting a lot of requests from Windows Mobile users asking when their phone will be supported, so Yahoo! wanted to get the release out to those users now, knowing that some would have to wait for the support.

    You can use the service on a little over 100 phones today (cummulatively), including java and Windows mobile supported phones.

  6. I’ve been checking the sms link everyday in eager anticipation, but nothing yet. I have been satisfied by the original YahooGO .cab file I have been using on my Dash, but the 2.0 looks so nice. Actually, the original YahooGO hogs the memory a bit and sometimes causes connection errors. I think it wants to fully control the data connection, but using it to sync just my address, calendar, mail, and photos is great.
