Default How does BES and BIS differ?

Please Login to Remove!

I use a 7290 that is connected to office BES email. Receiving emails is great they just arrive without any inter actions from me.

I want to set my wife and daugther up with personal Blackberry but I didn't want to spend the money for BES email. Some carriers have option to use BIS email.

Can some tell me how they differ? Will my wife and daughter have the same user experiance of emails being pushed automatically to their device?

thank you in advance.....

There are some outstanding and informative Sticky Thread FAQs at the top of the General BlackBerry Discussion forum. One of them should be able to answer your questions: FAQ: What Are The Methods of Receiving Email On BlackBerry?

NJBlackBerry...

Thanks for the link. it really helped.... now I just need to decide on which carrier. Their verizon network is ending in a few days. I'm thinking of going with T-Mobile since they have the new 8100 or will come out soon.

Any thoughts or comments about T-Moble personal email system?

thanks....

Talking

We use to have Cingular and T-Mobile. Verizon was always to high with their monthly cost. After a two year battle I was able to remove Cingular and we are now a T-Mobile shop. I have over 630 users I support and could not be happier with the customer care I receive. My local rep is able to get a lot of things done for me. Even getting a 8100 to test out. In short

Cingular - BAD

T-Mobile - GOOD

Thanks for the suggestions...

we ended up going with T-Moble for the family phones. We got a 8700 for the wife and 8100 the daugther.

Added the data plans for email and web browsing.

thanks again....
