Microsoft ActiveSync Review

Fernando Ortega
For Windows XP users to synchronize their Windows phones
A review of Microsoft ActiveSync by Fernando Ortega

ActiveSync (for Windows XP only) is a synchronization tool for those who own a Microsoft phone. Simply said: it can manage the content of your mobile phone from a Windows desktop PC.

This program works with certain versions of Microsoft Outlook, connects to the phone and keeps your data up-to-date. In addition, ActiveSync can also manage users, configure connections and more.

With ActiveSync 4.5, you can also upload and download images and videos from your phone.

Unfortunately with this version of ActiveSync, you can no longer connect with your wireless network or LAN, therefore you should already have the appropriate USB cable.

Don't forget, ActiveSync is only designed for use with Windows XP systems which have not yet updated to SP2.

Microsoft ActiveSync can manage contacts, transfer files between phone and PC and synchronize phone data.

Microsoft ActiveSync features and highlights:
  • Faster file transfer speed and photo sync via Outlook are only available for Windows Mobile 5.0 powered devices
  • Remote PC Sync (via WiFi or LAN) has been removed
  • Customers using Microsoft Exchange 2003 Service Pack 2 with devices running the Messaging and Security Feature Pack for Windows Mobile 5.0
  • Microsoft Outlook 2000 is not supported by ActiveSync 4.5
  • Conversion of database files for use on a mobile device is not supported by ActiveSync
  • Conversion of font files for use on a mobile device is not supported by ActiveSync 4.5 -- On previous versions, this feature was limited to devices running Windows Mobile software for Pocket PC 2003 and earlier.
  • Connectivity and synchronization may require separately purchased equipment and/or wireless products

Microsoft ActiveSync is licensed as Freeware for Windows (32-bit and 64-bit) operating system / platform from mobile phone tools without restrictions. Microsoft ActiveSync 4.5 is available to all software users as a free download (Freeware).
