I need a new personal phone, and I really like the form factor of the 7100 series. My work does provide Blackberries and has a BES setup, but there are two issues; 1) the bigger issue is that I canít use the phone for personal use (and I want to be able to keep my own personal phone number anyway), 2) I am limited to the Blackberry they provide (which is an older model) and they will not setup a personal BB with the access to the BES. I was wondering what my options were.
- Is it possible for me to buy a personal BB and somehow get it to access the company BES, but use my personal account for voice?
- Is it possible for me to change the phone number on the business BB to my personal cell phone number.. and have it charge minutes against my personal account but still be able to access the company BES for data?
- If neither of those are options, how about the BIS (or some other wireless sync option)? Does that only sync email or will it also take care of the calendar and tasks?
I am afraid that if none of the above are good options, I may end up getting a Treo with Wireless Sync (or one of the equivalent programs).
