Default Redirector and data charges

Please Login to Remove!

Hello All,
If I setup redirector on my work computer do I need to get a data plan from vodafone NZ to use with it with the blackberry pearl.

I don't want to land up with huge bill at the end of the month.

TIA

You need a BB dataplan to make it work. Also, leave your work computer on 24/7 and make sure you have "Leave Mail On Server" checked on the PC email client.

One reason I never recommend using redirector is that te PC must be on 24/7 for you to receive email on the BB. Otherwise, no nothing. If you can use BIS, that is a better option IMHO, however I realize there are times when that is not an option.
