Set up your work and personal email accounts and you'll be able to read/reply to them on your BB.

You can try and set up BT sync (go into Desktop Manager and look at Options>Connection options.

However, syncing via BT w/a BB usually isn't simple, unfortunately, since the BB only works with the XP SP2 BT stack...most computers have "widcomm" BT drivers installed, and those aren't compatible.

If you are somewhat geeky I may be able to point you at some threads that helped me set up BT syncing, but it wasn't that simple to do...
Yes, I will be using BIS. I do know that I can only get my email pushed to the BB, but I should be able to sync the other folders when directly connected to the desktop which I did not explain very well. I'm asking if I can sync both my work AND home Outlook folders when directly connected to the pc. And then I am wanting to do that with Bluetooth. I would greatly appreciate that link to try this when I get the Storm. So if I have SP3 installed, that willot work?
