I'm a BES administrator and your IT guy was blowing smoke up your ass. If your BES server is so out of date that it can't handle a 5.x handheld OS, then you wouldn't connect to it at all.

However, because this is beta software, it's possible that it's not optimized and is transmitting a lot more than it should be. device (attached to a BES, of course) is getting great battery life. I can go just about 40 hours between charges, and this is while the device is in my apartment, which gets like one or two bars, so it's using more battery to keep that connection going.

I'm very happy with the battery life and am wondering how much better the actual release version will be.
