Default Blackberry + Hotmail Query for BB Users

Please Login to Remove!

Just wondering for BB users, do you guys have push mail from Windows Live Hotmail??

Im currently using a Treo Pro, and have Exchange (Email/Contacts/Calender) & Hotmail (Emails) pushed onto the phone.

Problem is the battery life is horrendous, barely getting me thru the day under normal business usage conditions.

Looking to change to a BB BES solution, but need to make sure all my hotmail emails gets pushed thru just like exchange.

Any advice on good BYO Plans or Phone + Cap plans would be good too!

Was the 3 special on 8707G few months back very good value??

Also can BB support full HTML emails from exchange + hotmail??

Thanks!

Yes you can have hotmail emails pushed through BIS.
(personal)
and Exchange through BES if you have it.

You would need the BES data plan, to activate on a BES.

Blackberry's can READ HTML but NOT send HTML email.

My Hotmail comes to my BlackBerry instantly over BIS, and only my inbox. My spam stays away. Of course some messages I want get trapped by the spam filter and I can only see them when I check on a computer, but that's cool.
