Default PocketMac Contacts Field Mapping: Nextel Direct Connect

Has anyone toyed with PocketMac using a Nextel BlackBerry, Entourage and BES?

PocketMac tells me the default mapping puts Nextel Direct Connect numbers in the "Home 2" field in Entourage.

This puts me in a pickle for a couple of reasons. First, I am about to connect my Entourage to our Exchange server. Well, Outlook HAS a field called "Radio" that syncs wirelessly via our BES and picks up my DC numbers. If I connect Entourage to our Exchange server, it's going to get confused and have a double entry for the DC numbers.

You can't modify the mapping for the sync from Entourage to Exchange, right? What if I created a custom field in Entourage called "Radio", will the Exchange sync pick up on this?

I don't want to experiment, because I've lost a whole batch of DC numbers messing around before.

I don't have a problem letting the BES do all my sync work wirelessly--just as long as Entourage syncs with it correctly. There's not a pressing need for the PocketMac sync if I can do it wirelessly. And with the DC numbers, it aint going to as of yet.

Surely there's a work around...
