07/27/2007 Apple iPhone Numbers Not as Glowing as Hoped

AT&T Inc. wiped some of the glow off Apple iPhone on Tuesday, releasing numbers that showed fewer people than expected signed up for service in the first two days of the multimedia cell phone's release.


AT&T — the iPhone exclusive carrier — said it activated 146,000 iPhones on June 29 and 30, a number that disappointed investors following some analyst forecasts that Apple would sell 500,000 or more iPhones in its first weekend.

NotePager Pro and PageGate Support Tips
Remember to do backups! Backing up NotePager Pro and PageGate's data is incredibly important and needs to be done weekly, at the very least. Backing up is easy and simple, in fact, all you have to do is save one file.

In the NotePager Pro directory, you'll see a file called npp.mdb - that's the only file that needs to be backed up. For PageGate, if you'll look in the PageGate directory, you'll see a file called pagegate.mdb - that also is the only file that needs to be backed up. Backing up your data can avert disastrous situations, like having to manually input all of your carriers, recipients, and special program settings should the program need to be reloaded due to a hardware or software crash.

Note: DO NOT have either program running when you do a backup of the database. The programs must not be running in order to insure a proper backup.

If you need Carrier information, like which protocol to use or what settings go with what protocols, be sure to visit our website for an up-to-date list available. Feel free to visit http://www.notepage.net/support.htm and visit the SNPP, WCTP, SMTP, and TAP sections. If you know of carrier information we don't have, be sure to email us we are always happy to accept new information!

Just email it to support@notepage.com Having trouble sending pages out? Do the messages leave your system but never reach the cell phone or pager? Please email our support staff at support@notepage.com
