Red face BIS Cingular user, how to upgrade to BES?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi, I dont have a corporate account, just using the Pearl on Cingular's BIS.

Is there a way to upgrade to BES for use with personal email?
I want the benefits of BES for personal use.

Thanks!

You can pay a hosting service. Its about 20 bucks a month, and your data plan from cingular will also go from 29.99 to 39.99.
