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).

After this all you need to do is to run a USB cable (AT & T Supplied) between the Tilt and the PC or Lap Top. As long as this connection is in place you may not be able to access the Internet. The USB Cable connection also doubles up as a charging setup for the Tilt.

After installing ActiveSync on your Laptop(Desktop) you should see a folder HTC-9000 My Documents. The contents of this folder are synchronized with the MyDocuments on the AT&T's Tilt. It is just a matter of dragging and dropping files.

Here is HTC-9000MyDocuments



Here is My Documents on the Tilt.
