Instinct keeps getting better, now offers calendar sync
posted by Brian K. / Dec 04, 2008, 9:27 AM
This is a full featured solution, which gives the user complete control over their calendar. From the Instinct users users can see upcoming appointments in daily, weekly and monthly views, as well as an appointment view which gives them further detail about the event. Appointments can be created, edited and deleted on the go, and users are able to accept and decline meeting invitations. Anything done on the phone, of course, syncs back with the server. The update to Sprint Mobile Email is available now to all existing customers, and new customers will automatically benefit from the changes. Sprint plans to bring this update to other non-PDA phones in the future, further blurring the line between consumer and corporate devices.

the instinct wasnt meant to be a smartphone when it came out. It was a media phone directed at a younger crowd. However, this update is great for those who want to use their instinct as a "smart phone" either way im glad it came out

At this point I am starting to feel bad for Sprint. They are trying but I am sure their fourth quarter numbers will be terrible. I hope they can manage to keep it together because if they gain some steam maybe my verizon bill would go down and the market as a whole would be more competitive.

I actually have really been happy with my Instinct. I know there have been a lot of folks that have given up on this phone and are claiming that Sprint is as well, but they are still advertising the heck out of it and continue to improve it as they go. They would not do this if they were abandoning the phone as many of the fatalists have claimed. This update is a really good step forward. It is really helpful that to be able to view file attachments. There is also an independent app store developing athttp://www.instinct-software.com Most of the apps aren't overwhelmingly cool yet, but there is one that looks like it will make a lot of folks happy. It is a Calendar program that will eventually (its not fully functional yet) sync with Google Calendar, which easily syncs with iCal, etc.

lets see... there network, based on subscribers is pretty good... they finished top 2 in most markets, behind verizon... its not the network that needs the money... they should gobble up all the small carriers like verizon does, and claim that they spend more money than anyone else on the network... buying companies out does improve the network, but its misleading the customers...

Until they make it alright to do that, only talk and text will work. If anybody can testify differently, with proof, that wouldn't be smart because out the door the phone cost $500

I have seem posts where people claim to have an Instinct on a VZW account and they say they can text, talk, and web but that is it. With Live Search and TeleNav being some of the better features on the phone it would make it hard to drop $500 for it. I also wonder if you would still be able to add any 3rd party apps like Opera Mini or Google Maps.

I am currently a verizonwireless customer and I have purchased the curve thinking that it would take my mind off of this phone but I am so obsessed with the instinct that I am thinking about getting the service just for the phone of course I am not letting go of my verizon service.

I was an early adopter, now that all the updates have come out, that it's looking like I should give it another go round. What's making me hesitate is that the Omnia will be part of thier lineup and I will have to wait til 9/09 before I can get a full rebate
