    After using Mobile Connect a little more, there is a delay just long enough for the computer to send and receive messages from your phone. It's no more than a second or two now. So, once it all connects and settles down, it's fast. VERY COOL!

    The mobile connect software has received a couple of updates that let it run in the background on IOS now, so even with the app "off" you still get texts and calls, etc on your dell. Sweet setup, I am loving this software.

    I would love to run this on my 9365. Can you offer any advice on where to look for information about how to download and side load the app?

    I am pretty sure I have side loading down, but don't know how to get the app off the app store when it states it is unavailable.

    Thanks!

    Thanks for replying. I was mostly leery of sideloading an APPX that I found on some random website. In the end, I decided that since the install packages are digitally signed, it is probably safe. It would also be a pretty extensive long con for someone to hack a fairly obscure Windows Store app, write a series of blog posts about it to get a top search ranking and then hope someone transmits something useful with it.

    For anyone that might read this, I think the "correct" solution would be to download and install the app on a valid computer, then copy the APPX install package wherever you want it. Unfortunately, I don't have a supported device. I also am not sure where those APPX files are stored, but they must be somewhere on the computer.

    I do have it working, but the iPhone restrictions make it somewhat less than stellar. This might be one more item to add to my excuses to switch to Android.

    (I miss my Windows Phone.)

    Windows phone was great, but needed apps. I miss my 1020 dearly. However, the only advantage that android has over IOS in this application is viewing the apps on screen. Something I don't care about. I can message make and take calls...thats all I need.
