Campus Wireless Issues with iPhone/iPad and Windows Mobile Lync Clients
The Lync 2010 mobility clients released by Microsoft work over both wireless and carrier data networks. Due to the way that iPhone/iPad and Windows mobile phones operate they have to receive notifications pushed to them via a service hosted by Microsoft if they are logged in but running in the background.
There is a problem with this push notification service with several older wireless access points located around campus. The following is a list of known wireless access points across campus where this Lync push notification will not work.
Note: Android and Nokia Symbian phones do not require push notification and are thus not affected.

- Ag Plant
- ASTeCC building
- Baseball Stadium
- Biomedical Biological Sciences Research Building (BBSRB)

Why Can't I See My Contact Photo on My Mobile Client?
The Lync 2010 mobile clients only support contact photos that are stored within Active Directory. At this time the University of Kentucky does not store photos within Active Directory. The Lync 2010 Windows and Mac clients do not have this restriction and can see photos that have been connected trhough a URL.
