HTC Touch Pro swap experience and OMA

One thing sure is apparent when it comes to swapping out a data enabled phone: It takes a long time and multiple syncs to get the data onto the new phone.

In this case, we are talking about the Contacts, Calendar, and Tasks folders with their default content.

The e-mail was set to synchronize the last two weeks of e-mail in about 30 sub folders and nested folders.

The whole process took at least 2-3 hours with the need to initiate a Sync from within the ActiveSync application on numerous occasions to get things moving again.

When working with client's data enabled devices, the amount of data to synchronize is something to keep in mind if there is a need to get another phone working for their SBS based Outlook Mobile Access.
