Sauntering around the sandy beaches at Antalya or enjoying the beautiful climate at BODRUM & Gmbet in Turkey, you may get a call on your phone from the office asking you to check some important mail on your Outlook that needs to be addressed immediately. Such a sour situation, right? You will have to leave these beautiful places and move away in search of an internet caf or get hold of your laptop, isn’t it? But what if your mail can be accessed and addressed right on the same spot by just a click? Now that’s a great thing, right? Thus, get synchronized your mobile phone with hosted Microsoft Exchange Server. The ability to access your Exchange email on a mobile phone depends on whether you are carrying a mobile device that can access the local wireless provider, the data plans offered by the provider, and the proper configuration of your device.
Turkey is a country with a rich cultural heritage with maximum Turkish speaking populace. But language is never a hindrance while using Exchange Email hosting feature. Exchange 2010 hosting is available in different language packs making it easier for the people of Turkey to use the free hosted exchange in their local language.
Turkey’s GSM mobile cell phone companies are Turkcell (900 Mhz, the largest), Vodafone (formerly Telsim (900 Mhz, next largest), and Avea (1800 Mhz, the smallest). It’s very important for you to check whether your phone is compatible with these local providers of Turkey to enjoy the MS Exchange on your phone.
Turkcell’s coverage map is the best in Turkey, pretty much everywhere, except for occasional relatively small dead spots in a few remote and/or mountainous areas in the eastern region of the country. Vodafone, with 22% of the mobile phone customers in Turkey, has fairly good coverage in towns and cities larger than 10,000 population, but the least complete coverage of the three companies. Avea, with 17% of Turkey’s mobile phone customers, has extensive coverage of the country. You probably won’t find significant areas in your travels that have no service. Nevertheless, it’s important to check these leading wireless providers’ websites to understand the best offers and schemes that they are offering for exchange hosted service. Not only this, it is also important to check with your country’s provider if they have data roaming arrangements with Turkish carriers.
All in all, the exotic beaches of Turkish can become your office cabin if you carry Microsoft Exchange Server synchronization features on your phone!
