Default Is BBerrySync a viable solution?

Please Login to Remove!

Does anyone have experience with the BBerrySync product (they advertise right here in our forums). I've got Verizon, the 8330, I came from the Q, and the Q was not a great phone, but I did love how when I read an Outlook or Hotmail email on my phone at home or over the weekend -- it appeared as "read" on my desktop - and vice versa if I had already read emails on my desktop, they appeared as "read" on my phone.

It appears from reading the intro page when I clicked on the BBerrySync ad -- that their product handles this OTA for BIS users.

Anyone know?

Thank you all!!!

crap..... for a moment i had a glimmer of hope in getting rid of the 385 "unread" emails on my device -- when on my desktop in Outlook I have zero.

But thank you very much for the response. At least now I know, I guess.

How much is BES? And what's the BES hosted exchange (or some product like that, I forget the name) that seemed like a cheaper option with a little less functionality? How much are these solutions?
