I posted about this some time ago when it was originally launched. In short you get a free Okta Agent Windows Mobile smartphone when you sign up for 24 months with a Telecom to FLEXI Business or Team Builder mobile voice plans and get the new Okta Agent Free Email plan - one year of free mobile data for e-mail usage!
Basically it is one year of free data for POP/IMAP and Exchange ActiveSync - while you are in the 24 month contract and using the Okta Agent - you can check our Okta Agent review here.
You can also use this data for downloading attachments from your e-mail server and of course a bit of light browsing - perhaps a link you receive on an e-mail for example.
The device is not to be used as a modem for laptops, servers, etc - and a fair use policy applies. For what I've heard this will be monitored, but most people using POP/IMAP and Exchange ActiveSync would be pretty safe. This is from their FAQ:
Some examples of where your usage may be considered excessive and/or unreasonable are if you use your OKTA Agent:
- For sending and receiving extremely large email attachments like TV shows
- To watch TV programmes or download other streaming media - video or audio
- As a modem to download email or surf the net on your home computer
- For peer to peer data sharing (BitTorrent for example)
I see the FAQ page still says valid through 31st August, but it seems the stores got word yesterday that this promotion was being extended. I also got an e-mail from a Telecom contact when I asked about this plan, because I intend to talk about it during my Microsoft Tech Ed session.
