Default Verizon BB with Tmobile BB Server

Please Login to Remove!

Good Morning!!...I am a bit new to the BB world and looked around online to see if I can get an answer to my question but I havent been able to find anything.....so I will start off with my question....is it possible to have a blackberry through Verizon connect to a tmobile blackberry server for exchange/email purposes?...what other options would i have if i had a verizon blackberry and a tmobile bb server as far as retrieveing emails and sending emails through the vzn bb?....

so why am i asking?....well tmobile phone reception is HORRIBLE where i am...verizons is GREAT...our company uses tmobile bb's and a tmobile bb server...we use verizon cell phones though...so if i can get a verizon bb...and make sure it connects to the tmobile server...i would even be willing to pay half the bill so that i dont have to walk around with 1) my personal cell phone...2) my work cell phone...and 3) my work bb....

also one other question...do bb's support multiple phone lines on the same bb?...i know on some cell phones you can have 2 separate phone lines on that one device....but not sure on the bb....if the above works...then i can just use the bb with my personal line...work line...and the bb/emailing function mainly...which would make life so much nicer :0)....

thanks in advance to any responses you guys can give!!!

BES is carrier agnostic, so yes, you can use your Verizon BB.

No, they do not support multiple lines.

Nothing other than plugging in your Verizon PIN to your company's BES.

If you don't want bulky, get the 7130e. Bear in mind that suretype will take getting used to.

aside from the typing part...any other reasons why the 7290 would be better?...it looks like the 7130e has all the features that the 7290 have with the exception of speakerphone and bulkiness...
