Set your presence status

Communicator Mobile can automatically set your presence status by detecting your current activity on the mobile device or by gathering information from your Outlook calendar if you are also signed in to Communicator 2005 on your desktop. However, you can also manually set your presence status.

To manually set your presence status

  1. In the main window, tap Menu > My Status.

  2. Tap the presence status that you want others to see, and then tap Select.

To set your presence status from the Today screen

To set your presence status during a conversation

  1. In the conversation window, tap Menu > Contact list.

  2. Tap Menu > My Status.

  3. Tap the presence status that you want others to see, and then tap Select.

You can view the presence status of your contacts while appearing to them as though you are offline. To do so, you set your presence status to Appear Offline.

To appear offline

    Note   When your status is Appear Offline, you can see the presence status of your contacts, but they cannot send you instant messages or start voice conversations with you.
