Adding my voice to the chorus for N8 support in Beehive sync. I was using an E71 but it became unreliable, randomly rebooting for unknown reasons. The N8 is a great business phone, and handles Beehive e-mail just fine. I should think it would not be terribly difficult to add an N8 profile to the Beehive mobile sync server.
It is working.
Simple setup instructions :
1. edit $BEEHIVE_ORACLE_HOME/beehive/seed/oma/nokia_s60e5.xml
1.1 add to end :
<DeviceProfileName>Nokia S60 5th Edition</DeviceProfileName>
<Name>Nokia N8 DS11</Name>
2. upload profiles to server :
beectl upload_device_profiles --file $BEEHIVE_ORACLE_HOME/beehive/seed/oma/nokia_s60e5.xml
3. Create new sync profile to N8 and use server version 1.1 (1.2 will break sync)
4. sync device
That's it. works nice and smooth with E6, C7, E7, N8 etc.
Guys, If you guys are using your Nokia phone for Oracle Beehive emails over the air sync, normal IMAP Beehive configurations works fine but you wont be able to sync calendar. Great workaround for syncing calendar is to publish your Outlook Calendar to Your Hotmail/Live.com account. Open your outlook calendar > my calendars > publish to Internet > use your Hotmail/Live account. Its a real time sync. Outlook Calendar would give you a URL to be published on the internet. Your calendar will be updated in real time on your Hotmail account. !Open your hotmail account calendar and subscribe to the URL provided by Oracle Outlook Calendar. You Finished step 1.
On your phone, create a new exchange email account and give your Hotmail/Live.com credentials but Sync only Calendar. You're done! Your Outlook calendar would keep publishing on your Hotmail and Your phone would keep fetching your hotmail entries. You would see all your oracle calendar entries on your phone calendar.
Only drawback is that you wont get alerts for your new meeting invites and you still need to accept/reject your calendar invites from outlook only. But you will see all entries on your phone and will receive your reminders as well.
