Posted by at 11:32 am on December 4, 2008

Customers of Sprint now can get mobile access to their corporate calendar on the popular Samsung  Instinct. Today’s launch of corporate calendar access on Instinct provides easy synchronization with Microsoft Exchange Server and IBM Lotus Notes account calendars. As part of Sprint Mobile Email Work, which already provides access to corporate email and contacts, the new calendar feature allows Instinct users to view and update their work calendar, create and delete appointments and more, right on their phone.

“With the speed and usability of the Now Network and affordable non-PDA devices, Sprint is giving customers on-the-go business functionality on popular consumer-friendly phones,” said Len Barlik, vice president of wireless and wireline services for Sprint. “Along with existing access to corporate email and contacts through Mobile Email Work, the addition of corporate calendar synch to the Instinct lets Sprint customers increase productivity and stay connected whenever and wherever they want.”

The calendar feature is an extension of Mobile Email Work’s existing access to business email accounts. Sprint worked with SEVEN,   provider of mobile messaging solutions, to create Mobile Email Work, which now allows Instinct users to access work calendars from Microsoft Exchange Server 2000, 2003 or 2007 accounts, or IBM Lotus Domino accounts.

Mobile Email Work with corporate calendar synch includes monthly, weekly and daily views of the user’s calendar, along with an appointment view that displays the details about each appointment or meeting. Reminders bring upcoming appointments or meetings to the user’s attention. Users can edit existing appointments, accept or decline meeting requests, or create new single-date, multi-date or all-day appointments. Users also can delete appointments and meetings. All changes made on the Sprint phone are automatically synchronized with the user’s desktop calendar.

For Instinct users, the corporate calendar feature will be provided as a software update to customers with Mobile Email Work. Customers who are new to Sprint Mobile Email and want to activate the service can do so directly through the email menu -“ no software download is required. Once email is activated, customers will be prompted to accept the upgrade to enable corporate calendar access. In addition to the Samsung Instinct, Sprint plans to extend corporate calendar synch to additional non-PDA phones in the future.

Mobile Email Work with the new corporate calendar feature is included at no additional charge for Instinct customers, including those on Everything Data plans starting at $69.99, Sprint’s worry-free $99.99 Simply Everything plan and Everything Data Family plans starting at $129.99 for two lines (taxes and surcharges excluded).
