Cool BIS/BES Justification

Hi,

I hope I'm not going to get flamed for this ....I'm also a new blackberry user and I've been going through the forums looking for answers to various questions that I've come across. I'm not going to ask the same question that started this thread off, but, with regard to people who have not owned a blackberry before it does seem a little odd that this device can justify it's own niche network plan to allow access to the internet and email when other devices work out of the box without this special care and attention (and cost).

I bought the device for it's inbuilt functionality and obviously not for surfing the web (I much prefer doing that on my pc). So out of curiousity how are these additional data plans justified when people can buy an alternative device and not have to pay the additional cost.

Quick duck, here comes a flame

Regards,
Lee

Not going to flame you... but it would very easy to do.
I would suggest you do some research and read up on what BIS and BES are, and how they actually work.
Once you discover how they function, and how these transport methodologies differ from "alternative devices", your answers will become very apparent.

First, welcome to the Forums.

And to add, not to flame: BlackBerry's backbone is and has been the user who needs push email. That is where their business and much loyalty was built. Only recently, in the past two years, have they begun to market a more "pro-sumer" device like the 8100 which you have.

They can require a BlackBerry Data Plan, because the greater market share of BB users demand the more dependable and secure network which BlackBerry offers.

It's the same old adage, you get what you pay for. You don't have to pay for the BB Data Plan, but you won't enjoy full use of the device you have in your hands.
