Default Will the new T-Mo web client be used by other carriers

Please Login to Remove!

I'm on T-Mobile now, and (unlike some others in this forum), really like the new web client, especially the ability to reply to mail from different accounts with different return addresses. I am planning to switch to Verizon because of coverage issues and am playing with a 7250 on a 15-day trial (and am almost certain I'll keep it).

Does anyone know if the new T-Mo style client is going to be adopted by other carriers like Verizon?

Thanks,
sidsub

The extra functionality is good...

However, how do you check your email when you're out of coverage?

I haven't heard of other carriers taking on this new client. Yet.

If you do have Internet access through other means, and if the mail is coming through other accounts, then use your regular email client, or web-based email client to check. I've never given out my blackberry.net address to anyone to send email to, because I've never seen a reason to have my email tied to the blackberry... there are plenty of alternative ways to get to your mail, and the blackberry is simply a tool to deliver it to your hands. IMHO, anyway.

But then I've got to manually check 6 email addresses...much easier to log into one.

True... having an aggregating web client would help in that situation, although one could, in your situation aggregate one's mail into something like gmail, and then have that forward to the blackberry. Still, point taken -- it's a convenience you were using and TMO took it away.

Good point, however, I think the advantages out weigh this one downside. And there are many advantages to include the Yahoo BES like feature. I live in the city, rarely travel, never without my BB and TMO is pretty reliable around here so I have yet to encounter this problem.

Has anyone tried aggregating via Yahoo? I set up things in the T-Mobile BIS but I personally don't ever use my Yahoo account for anything.
