The Meaning Of Always On And Wireless Sync Services For Verizon

by on January 10, 2008

Q: I am researching phones for Verizon and would like to know the difference between “always on” and “wireless sync” for email access with the various phones.

A: Wireless sync allows a user to sync their wireless mobile device to a desktop PC for email, calendar, contacts and other tasks they may be performing. The term “always on” refers to an Internet connection that is “always on” meaning that the wireless device maintains a constant connection to the Internet. Wireless sync features a “push” email feature that automatically sends your emails to your device.
