I want to switch between my 8100 and my 8300. I know that with BES service I have to call Mailstreet to have them send the Enterprise Activation everytime I switch. This is no big deal to do. My question is I am thinking about moving to BIS (to save some $'s) with the new 2.3 version allowing for more "instant" email delivery. If I do this the only way to keep my calendar/contacts etc... up to date would be to connect to my PC and sync each time I switch. Correct?
Also, in order to take advantage of this new push email with v2.3 would I need to forward my POP3 email account to a Gmail or Yahoo account? Or am I missing something here?

I am switching between my Curve and Pearl on BIS and it is easy. You are correct about the contacts having to be sync'd through the cable. If I understand your enterprise mail question correctly you are wanting to forward corporate mail to a POP3 account, correct? I tried doing that with my corporate mail and it did not work due to our IT policies. I think you have the right idea though assuming your IT policies permit forwarding to a POP3 account.

Ok, I forwarded my POP3 to my gmail account and I am getting email on the BB but my Outlook is not able to send emails. I do not get any error message but the emails do not arrive where they were sent.
