Default BIS/BES Confusion

Please Login to Remove!


I'm currently using active-sync on a windows mobile device to synchronize my e-mails, calendar, contacts etc. A good friend of mine gave me his Blackberry 8800 device. I'm considering to activate the blackberry option of my hosted exchange provider and to get a blackberry data plan. My provider swisscom offers a BIS data plan for private customers:
Swisscom Residential Customers - BlackBerryxxx174; E-Mail

I'm not sure if this data plan is going to work with my hosted exchange provider? (

What mail service are you using from mail2web? If you are going to use BES (BlackBerry Services - Wireless connection to your Exchange Email) you need a BES data plan.
Exchange 2007/BES 5.0.2 MR2
