Hello,

I know this may be a REALLY STUPID question, but how do I get the Mobile Favorites button on may Internet Explorer to actually put my Mobile Favorites on my Samsung i600.

Thanks for any help you can provide...

No question is too stupid - we're all the same.

Use activesync

Under options make sure "Favorites" is selected to sync. Then you can highlight the favorites selection and click "settings" to see what is being synced

I check the options under ActiveSync and I can't seem to find "Favorites." Where should I look to list them as info to be synced??

Are you looking in AS on the desktop? Tools>Options. Should be a long list of things that can be sync'd, calendar, contacts, etc. Favorites should be one. The device needs to be connected to see the options.

the only things I have listed are Calendar, Contacts, Inbox, Tasks, and Smartphone Notes.

How do I get Favorites on the list to be synced?

Click OPTIONS at the upper right, it lists all the items, then select the boxes of things you want

was this option supported on the i600? I thought favourites sync was a WinMo2003 option, no?

It's supported on my WM5 devices, SP and PPC. Almost sounds like a re-install of AS might be in order.

fmvela, do you have a folder called 'Mobile Favorites' under Favorites in Internet Explorer on your desktop?

Yes, I do have a "Mobile Favorites" folder under my Favorites folder in Internet Explorer. I have put several mobile-friendly sites into it but the have not migrated over to my i600.

Incidentally, my i600 is running WM 2003.

Alright... When you phone is connected and finished sync'ing, click on Active Sync on the desktop and select Tools / Options, highlight the Favourites item in the list and click the Settings button. Are any of your links selected?
