Amazon.com Product Description

With the Glenayre @ctiveLink Wireless Messaging Module, you can easily keep in constant contact via e-mail and stay up-to-date on the latest news, stock reports, and sports scores--all from your Handspring Visor.

The @ctiveLink module connects to a ReFLEX wireless network and transfers data at an average of 9.6 KB per second. The ReFLEX wireless network provides the broadest coverage and best in-building penetration. No dialup or login is required, and you can leave the @ctiveLink connected to the network even when the module is removed from the Visor. It is powered by two AAA batteries and also includes a backup Ni-Cad battery that maintains module power and protects stored messages if the AAA batteries' power becomes too low.

When the @ctiveLink module is inserted into the Visor's Springboard expansion slot, its three embedded applications automatically start up and are automatically downloaded into the handheld. The @ctiveLink application is the main window for your wireless services, showing network connection and available applications. It will also display pending messages and the unit's battery level.

BeamLink is the two-way messaging application that enables you to compose, read, and send e-mail. You can attach items such as addresses, appointments, to-do notes, and memos to messages you send. If you send an attachment to someone else who uses BeamLink, they can save that attachment onto their Visor. If you send an attachment to a non-Palm OS user, contents are simply listed within the e-mail. Messages that are received are downloaded into the Visor when the module is inserted.

InfoBeam provides a collection of Internet query applications that allow the device to request and receive information on demand from a variety of Internet sources--from stock quotes, sports, and news updates to weather reports and airline flight information. Other services include the ability to track FedEx and UPS packages and search phone directories (white and yellow pages). Note that you cannot view Web sites with InfoBeam. Also, information is automatically downloaded from the inserted @ctiveLink module to the Visor and deleted when the module is removed (@ctiveLink and BeamLink applications remain in the Visor's memory even when the module is removed).

The @ctiveLink module can be used much like a pager--even when removed from the Visor, it will continue to receive and store messages as long as it is turned on and is in network range. A green LED on the front of the module shows that its power is on. If the green light blinks fast, new messages have been received. Messages that are received are downloaded into the Visor when it's inserted.

Important note to customers: The Glenayre @ctiveLink Wireless Messaging Module requires a minimum $24.95 monthly wireless service option through Metrocall. An activation card with details is included in the box. For information on Metrocall's nationwide coverage, call the customer service department at (800) 318-8796. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great for what it's designed for
Works great. Haven't owned any other messaging modules so can't compare them. This does exactly what it says it will do.

4-0 out of 5 stars Works Great
This springboard module is pretty good, but you've got to check which paging service your specific module will work with. For instance, since I own a Skytel module I am only able to use Skytel service. That means you can't price shop for service at all. You are limited to whichever company your module is preprogrammed for. Hopefully this is some useful information if your considering buying one. It only costs about [money]/month for email service on your PDA which is a pretty good deal, considering I can use my email service pretty much where ever I like.

1-0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Horrible
This is supposed to be a wireless device that let's you serf the web, when in actuality it is nothing more than a pager. You send web inquirys, and it sends back a reply, then you have to send another... get the point. An absolute worthless device, with the limitation of 100,000 characters a month you run into the maximum rather quickly. If you have a cell phone just get a cable to connect it to a modem and your off. It's cheeper...

3-0 out of 5 stars Functional, but klunky form factor
This device is functional and it does exactly what it says it will do. I send and receive email on it as long as they are around 500 characters, otherwise my service provider chunks the email up and I get it in several emails. So, if it is 1000 characters I get two 500 character emails. I found the Infobeam application that comes with it to be outstanding. I use it to look up phone numbers in the yellow pages.

My complaint is the form factor. It sits on top of the handspring and makes it taller and fatter. So, it will not fit into standard palm cases without removing the module. The module doesn't include a belt clip so it just kinda floats around. If it would have been a smoother form factor I would have given it 4 stars. If it had a better form factor and the underlying networks would allow bigger emails I would have given it 5 stars. It is worth mentioning that SMS (cellular) devices only allow 120 character emails, which is a joke.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great device with true push ability
I really like this device because of the very braod network coverage, I don't think there is another wireless service that can compare coveragewise. I especially like the ability to truely push info to the device. Since it's always on and always checking to see you if have any inbound information, as soon as it recives the info it lets you know. You don't have to start it up, wait to connect and then check to see if you have anything that came in. The built in software automatically installs in the Visor when you put it in the springboard slot the first time so you never have to worry about your Visor crashing and not being able to comunicate because as soon as you put the device back in, the software will load up again and you are ready to communicate within seconds. Built in software lets you track packages, get weather, get stock quotes, directions, all sorts of stuff. Better get rechargeable batteries though if you use it like I do. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Instant Messaging
Great product. Can send messages, receive e-mails anywhere in the US. Was on vacation in Wisconsin, driving between Green Bay and Madison, and got an urgent message from the office. Was able to respond in a few minutes, issue was handled and I continued my vacation. Did not have to get into long calls once I got to my hotel. Easy to use.

5-0 out of 5 stars Glenayre's @ccessLink II is fabulous!
This module has features and capabilities no other seems to have. It's "always on" so there's no waiting and no busy signal. It can work outside the Visor! It is two-way. Lots of power and you can reliably connect from anywhere, and STAY connected because it's always ON. It uses ReFLEX technology that can retain connections anywhere in the world, so you don't have to worry about travelling. I find this to be the most reliable gadget of this type, with a lot of available software to expand capabilities as needed.

This module won a prize last night at the CTIA Wireless IT 2000.

In the consumer application category, Glenayre's @ctiveLink won with its two-way wireless messaging module which works with the Handpsring Visor Handheld computer, snapping seamlessly into the Visor Springboard tm expansion slot to wirelessly enable the powerful personal information management utilities of the handheld computer. The @ctiveLink provides users with Always @ctive -- not session-based - connectivity to ReFlex networks, whether or not it is inserted in the Visor. This means the user does not have to "log on" to the network and the module is constantly receiving messages.

I wasn't surprised at the "win" since I found it to be the best such device, myself. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Visors (I know nothing about the included module)
(I have a visor deluxe graphite, but I will post it up under all visors, because the comments apply to all of them unless otherwise noted)

I finally decided to get a handheld, so after dropping a few hints, I got a Visor Deluxe for my 15th birthday (OK, OK, I totally walked my dad through the purchase process, but who cares?)

9 days (and based on battery use, over 2 months of normal use) later, here is my review. The Visor is pretty small, I don't know what people saying it was bulky were talking about. It is really easy to use, it took no getting used to, except for the graphiti. That's still a little wierd. It has a backlit screen, but I never figured out how to turn it on, my friend did. You hold down the power button. Hotsyncing couldn't be easier, you press the hotsync button on the cradle or on the visor's screen and it goes. The 2 MB visor will probably be good enough for you if you only download Freeware Apps and use it as an organizer, but if you are like me, you will need the 8MB of the deluxe, platinum, prism and edge. The screen is very clear of most things (digital photo albums can look pretty bad, but I think it is the App and not the Visor) It has been very reliable so far, I have installed nearly every App I could find, and no freezes, even soft ones. The stylus has a built in screwdriver and reset tool.

The downside- The OS is not upgradible, maybe someone will make a springboard module someday, but I doubt it, and it will cost alot and not allow you to use the springboard for anything else, killing it's main selling point over the Palm. And also, I am careful with it so I have put no scratches on it, but I let some people borrow it, and I am seeing some. I am mad now (no, that does not read mad cow, mad now) Screen covers cost about $2, but they take all the un out of even owning one. they are that terrible. If worst comes to worst, you can replace the screen down the road for $50. even if you have to replace it once a year (which you shouldn't, but just for the sake of argument) it is worth it. A screen cover ruins everything. Being the careful user you will be, you shouldn't scratch it too badly too quickly.

Comparing to a Palm- this is Much better than a Palm. My friend has a Palm. I hate it. OK, I don't hate it, but it is a mere shadow of mine. the screen quality of the Visor is much better for moving things such as games, and the buttons on the visor are 10 times easier to push, the difference between winning and losing in many cases. The Springboard port is the final factor that puts the Visor way ahead of the Palm. You can get modems, cameras, more space, GPS, cell phones, voice recording, Games, Mp3 players (tisk tisk, stealing music, eh? Kids these days!) You name it, they got it. (look under springboard modules here at Amazon for things I missed) But one thing that annoys me about the Visor and not about the Palm is the infrared port. The visors is in an Akward location, and the Palm's is not (see pictures) And the Visor does not have an upgradible OS, but that doesn't matter too much, so far they have been little more than a minor update. All in all, definitly buy the Visor.

Choosing the right Visor- REGULAR- This has OS 3.1 and 2MB of ram. this is enough only for people who plan to use it for it's designed purpose. If it's not enough, you can upgrade later via Springboard cards. 4 shades of grey DELUXE-Cool colors (which I opted against to avoid too much attention), 3.1, and 8MB of Ram. 4 shades of grey too. PLATINUM-Faster processor, but it's not necessary. However, if you can cough up the cash, it is worth it, because it displays 16 shades of grey and OS 3.5. EDGE-Just like the Platinum, only much thinner. However, putting on a springboard card makes it about as thick as the regular ones. PRISM-Just like the Platinum, only it is in color. Definitly worth it if you got the cash.

PS-to avoid scratches, DON'T LET PEOPLE BORROW IT!!!!!!! I can't stress that enough. People are stupid. Kids these days!

1-0 out of 5 stars Never worked
I ordered this with high hopes. I was severely disappointed. This unit came with Metrocall service and after 2 weeks of doing everything humanly possible, and 4 hours online with customer service and everyone possible, I mailed it back today. This unit looked great and was a serious disappointment. Part of the problem is that you have 3 or more providers with each piece of equipment. 1)hardware 2)wireless service 3)software writers for hardware operation and programs. This just seems to be too many cooks in the kitchen. Everytime I had a problem, each would point fingers at the others. I, being the customer did not appreciate that and the attendant wasting of my time.

5-0 out of 5 stars Works great for relocation
I just got my @ctiveLink last week and used it to find my way around this new town I'm relocating to. It worked great. I sent myself an e-mail containing all the house addresses I was looking for then used the travel info to get from place to place. Nice addition to my toys!
