Default BNSF Emulator on Smart Phone?

Has anyon her tried using a smart phone ie. MotoQ or Blackberry to access the BNSF emulator? I use U.S. Cellular and was in their store checking them out but the salesman couldn't figure out if it could be done. Any info would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

As far as I know, not possible at this time. Using a devices using WM5 or 6, I use the mobile remote desktop to connect to my PC at home and do it that way. Pain in the A$$, but it works.

There is a program that is supposed to work on handhelds to use the emulator. I know that there are people in the system that have it working, but I have not had contact with them yet. It is not supported by BNSF, so none of the exempt blackberry users have it on their issued phones. Go to www.ota.rovemobile.com, download only the mobile ssh trial version, and set up your connection. If you happen to run into anyone that has the right settings to make it work, please let me know. There is a roadforeman in CO that has it working, I just haven't heard back from him.

Hey Buck,

Just talked to an engineer about this. He has his Moto Q set up for it. All you need to do is have the carrier install Java and you're good to go. Two major pluses I see are accessability to the emulator and you have your rule book all in one device.

I'm going down to U.S. Cellular to check them out sometime this week.

Buck, Have you heard anything on the settings for this. For that matter has anyone figured out how to do this yet?

PCmobilzr works but it is not that great on a windows mobile phone.

It is great for playing pranks on your family while you're away from home. You can control anything from your phone on your home pc.

Their is a new app that just came out on the android market (and they say their also launching an apple one soon) It's called "Emulator 3270" you can look up BNSF also to find it. It is so easy to use compared to trying to log in through a browser and having to use those little F-keys on the screen, This one dosn't have those. It is the best and easiest way to log on to the Emulator.
This is a video of how i works ( Emulator Access 3270: Accessing the BNSF Emulator from Android Devices - YouTube)
After you download it you enter the URL the one time and that's it. Then every time you hit the app it goes strait to the BNSF log in screen. NICE - and logs you in

I'll give it a try next time I'm at the hotel, but right off hand, why would you tell it to go to the HTML session?
