Migrating from Windows Mobile 6.1 to Windows Phone 7

January 26, 2011 · 2 min read
I figured I'd try to pick an SEO-rific title to hopefully convey the steps I went through to migrate data from a WM6.1 to WP7. My Prerequisites: (yours may vary) Outlook and Outlook Connector, OneNote 2007 optional. Thunderbird also works great or so I've been told. This post assumes everyone has already setup the activesync between their computer and the wm6.x device and the data they want is synchronizing to Outlook. Alternatively I also had the Windows Live app on the phone which allowed for direct synchronization to Hotmail but at the time I didn't w ...

Using Windows Phone 7

I figured I'd pull a me too post and give some first impressions using the HD7 and the OS coming from Windows Mobile 6.1 Email There is no straight migration process from the Outlook/ActiveSync based model to "the cloudz" but that's a fairly simple process Accounts are separate which isn't so much of a problem for me. I think having it as a choice would be cool though You can't sync drafts or your outbox. This makes sense that the mobile should be "separate" but it syncs with Windows Live Mail. I may want to start a message on my phone and finish on m ...

I promise I haven't been intentionally neglecting you, Mr. Blog. A lot has changed since the last time I posted here. I basically got laid off from a position in IT working for my dad's company at Omega HR Solutions, Inc. I transitioned into a career path I chosen in college: software development. It was rather fortunate that I had been doing a lot of work in .NET throughout the 10+ years of working for them to produce relatively usable code. My current position is with Swerdlin & Company officially as "Software Developer" until a cooler title can b ...

I'm still in the process of moving but managed to move the computer + desk. I've moved to a much smaller room but the group of friends is a little more in sync compared to the other living arrangement. I still need to share living with other people which tends to suck in certain directions. I'll reiterate the obvious: moving sucks. I'm sore. I haven't slept much but I'm thankfully about 80% done. Cleanup is going to suck and thankfully I can take trash to where I am now then dump it at work periodically where they have a bigger trash collector. The only ...

Going "dark"

I'm currently in the process of moving so from the weekend of January 23rd through as fast as I can move, I'll have limited internet access. I'll use the free time to create a proper sample project to include all the ideas stirred in the outline I made here: Upcoming ASP.NET MVC posts. I'll try to write up as much as I can from various wifi spots with the intention of getting the bulk of it out within the next week. I'm tired of this being on my To-Do list but moving does have the higher priority at the moment. Let the withdrawal begin.
