Configuring a Windows Phone 7 device for Over-The-Air sync with ChaosHost

Please note: This is a draft version of the setup instructions for this phone. If you find something that doesn't match up with what you see on your device, please let our support department know so we can improve this page.

While not a requirement, it is also a VERY good idea to have a backup of your data files. Our Time & Chaos and Chaos Intellect programs offer this as a choice on the File menu. You should make a backup now if you have never done so, and making regular backups of your data is recommended!

Please plug your phone into a power supply when doing your initial sync! It is not a requirement, but the very first transfer will be sending enough data that most users will notice considerable battery drain.

1. Configure Time Zone Settings

To successfully transfer your appointment data with correct times, you need to select a default Time Zone for your database on  You will also want to set your Windows Phone 7 device to the same time zone to ensure that all the appointment start and end times come to your device as they should.  WARNING:  If you change the time zone on your device, Microsoft will change all of the start and end times on your appointments!  If you want the start times and end times to continue to match what you see on and in Time & Chaos/Chaos Intellect, you should NOT change the time zone on your device once you have made your initial setup!


2. Add a Exchange ActiveSync account to your Windows Phone 7 device
