Default I teach high school science ...

Please Login to Remove!

and I have been noticing my students blackberrys and well, I guess I'd like to have one too.

Main questions:

1. The school district might be unwilling to push my emails to my blackberry. Apparently, they only have a limited number of licenses or something. Can I set my my outlook account to forward any email I get?

2. I have lots of outlook tasks and contacts, and the main reason I'd like the bberry is that I need to keep my calander straight. Frankly, I'd lose my head if it wasn't attached and I often screw up dates. Can I just plug in my bberry with a USB port and will it just sync up? That would be outstanding.

3. I like the red 8100 pearl. It is slick looking. Any chance for a blue one?

1. You can do BIS or BlackBerry Internet Service to get your mail.

2. Yes, that's exactly how it works.

3. Probably not for ahwile, if ever.

What you can do with your employers computer depends on permissions settings on the machine, the email server, etc. The BB is capable of accessing an email account, but your employer's server may not allow it. Similarly automatic email forwarding may be disallowed. And you may not be allowed to install the Desktop Manager application.
