Voice Mail Navigation path for AT & T Tilt

Here is the navigation tree used in setting up the voice mail on your Tilt. I received this figure from AT & T. The problem was that the Voice Prompts for setting up the mail was too fast and the minimum password requirements were not available in the manual.

Here are some of those password rules:
It cannot begin with a 0 or 19.It cannot end with 9.It cannot be a repetition of numbers, such as 2222.It cannot be a simple string of numbers, such as 1234 or 6789It cannot be customer's wireless number.Here is the scheme for setting up voice mail:

AT & T Tilt and Microsoft ActiveSync 4.5

AT&T's OS platform is Windows Mobile 6.1 and ActiveSync is like a pipeline connecting your Windows XP Desktop (or Laptop) and your Windows Mobile device which in the present case is AT & T Tilt. For ActiveSync to work with your device you need to run the setup disc that AT & T ships with the product that has the ActiveSync 4.5 on it. You may also download this program from Microsoft site at:

In my case, the CD did not pickup. I explored the program and installed it (ugh! minor annoyance).

AT & T Tilt

I recently got fed up with the Verizon's dropped calls and signed up with AT & T for a 2 year trial [Exchanged the 'hear me now' to 'more bars in more places']. Now I have a AT & T Tilt. This is based on Windows Mobile 6.1. I am planning to look it over.

The autosync is not too dissimilar to the little program that Windows 95 had for syncronizing the files on floppy. You just connect the AT & T Tilt to your USB drive and you are ready to go.
