    Droid frg22d update stops syncing with exchange 2010 - Verizon Wireless Community

    Apparently I'm not the only one with elevated frustration.

    Short version of the story:

    - Spent hours on the phone w/Moto & Verizon explaining that my OG Droid will no longer connect to ActiveSync w/ Exchange 2010 SP1.

    - Verizon & Moto both admit problem.

    - Moto says they're working on it. Verizon says to pay $44.95 a month and it will work.

    - If I hear one more "supervisor" tell me that it's my problem, and to either pay more, or use TouchDown ($20 app that sucks by the way) I am going to start a class action. Yes, I have the money, and no, I'm not bluffing.

    - Please post your woes on this forum as I am starting a case # with the BBB on this matter and I need as much ammo. as possible.

    -- for the record -- I know I could just root, flash a rom, then patch the email.apk file with some modified code...alas, not everyone is that savvy...and this is about PRINCIPLE!

    I disagree that touchdown sucks. I have been using it since I got the Droid a year ago and it's been great. I like the fact that Exchange security policies apply to only touchdown versus the whole phone. But to each their own, good luck with that lawsuit.:rolleyes:

    ok, i shouldn't have thrown opinion in my post. :) it's not horrible, but it's not a solution to the problem, it's a work around cop out.

    here's the thing - across many message boards, 1000's are experiencing this problem - enough to warrant a class action. the BBB has been of great assistance in explaining the required documentation in order that they pursue the issue.

    if push came to shove, and there was an actual case to be had, i'd gladly invest the $5000 to file the class action. it only takes one person (with support) to actually do this, and obviously there would be no fees if it came to fruition.

    i obviously wouldn't throw away $5Large if there was no case. :)

    My non-Touchdown-using coworkers complain that sync does not include attachments.... Exchange 2003. Not sure about that, as I get everything with TD.

    Good luck! That $45 crap would piss me off, too.

    mswhite - that has everything to do w/provisioning permissions on the server side - i use to get attachments no problem w/OG Droid on Exchange '03/'07. have your IT dept. take a look at the settings - you should be able to clear that up.

    Thanks - I'll mention to the guys that have the issue. It's not a problem for me, though.

    I got 4-6 Droid 1's that cannot sync to Exchange 2010. Didn't have any luck with changing the Email.apk.

    You're just throwing it away if you think filing is all it takes. Even if the class action suit was successful the class members would just end up with a ridiculous settlement like a $5 coupon off Verizon service. Have you ever actually been involved in class action suits? They're cash cows for the attorneys. That's it.


    Depends on how you look at it, I guess. I use Touchdown and I have no problems. $20 seems to beat $5,000 IMO but you gotta do what you gotta do, I guess.
