I posted this in the 8100 section, but since I don't think I received a definitive response from an actual user in my predicament, thought I would try here. I've update the post to reflect the latest. So I called Verizon data tech support 4 times. Each time I got a different answer - 1st no, then you have to call Blackberry, then yes, it should, then the last time in which they got RIM on the phone and confirmed that in fact it does work. They even posted a confimration in my file with a case number just in case there were problems. So, here is the only thing I'm trying to find out.
No exchange server, just using pop mail on a hosted mail server. Right now with my pocket pc and using Verizon's wireless sync client, I can wirelessly sync email, contacts, appointments, tasks, notes. I'm told that with the blackberry I can't use Verizon's wireless sync client and must use either BIS or a desktop redirector. Acutally, the next to the last verizon tech person said both and the last tech person said on BIS since you needed an exchange server for the redirector. I think everyone was consistant in that I can not wireless sync anything but email. Everything else must be via a cable.....and that's ok. But what I couldn't get a consistant answer on was that if I sent an email from my phone, would it wind up in my outlook sent folder on my desktop. Some people have suggested BCC, but I don't want to necessarily do that if not required as a BCC would not wind up in the sent folder and I assume I would need some filters to make sure the bcc is not resent as a new email to my phone. Anyone have actual experience and setup recommendations for this.
