    Give mobile connect a try. It's dell so you can DL' it on your alienware without issue. I find it works great.

    Yes I have now switched to Alienware Mobile Connect (which is the same as Dell Mobile Connect).
    Previously I was not even able to install it since I did a clean install but then I found the solution, see: Fix for Windows Store: This app is not compatible with this device

    Thanks for this, I've now managed to get it working after a few restarts.

    I find it works really well now with iphone. Much better than the previous version. I can just imessage and call now without having my phone on etc. It's just on its charging pad and I send and receive messages and calls without issue. You have to have the app open, and some other things done in order to mirror the screen. After the novelty wore off mirroring is a nothing function for me as everything I do on my phone files wise is stored in onedrive. But the upgraded functionality of messaging and calling are great.

    Reminds me of Blackberry Blend. Ah yes, Blackberry, good all times.
    Now I have to use Android and Windows 10 :(

    I still miss BlackBerry after like what, maybe 8 or 10 years now? The real qwerty keyboard and trackball is still vastly superior to the disgusting touch input rubbish that has become the norm. I hated touch the first time I tried it and still hate it as much today.

    Agreed, you can blame Jim balsillie for that. He was all caught up in fighting the NHL for a team for waterloo that he let blackberry die. Dummy.

    Not even in a hundred light years will touch screens even come near the precision and the fun of the tactile feedback of a physical QWERTY keyboard. BlackBerry for life.
    One of the best phones I had, Bold 9900, that thing had 3 days battery life, superb size as it still had the size of a phone not a freakin' phablet like all phones now are.

    Agreed. The iPhone 678 is the largest phone I want. 1020, 650 950 are what are interesting me again.

    I may even get a passport and 9900 for s&g as well.
