I'm not sure what CALs have to do with it? I wouldn't be able to add a user without the CAL, no?

I thought it was like a limited 6 months Tx0 support?

We talked to our rep at CDW and they more or less act as an interfacing for you and RIM, although their staff is supposedly well-trained and should be able to field your support calls. They also cover any sort of upgrade costs, as well.

I just see RIM's handheld cost as an add-in bonus to them on getting more money for increased user bases and rollouts. We already pay for a CAL, so why should we have to pay additional support costs for each user we add?
In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and is widely regarded as a bad move.
