You should email your benefits coordinator or HR for that information- should be readily available to them.

Oh, and congrats on the position. looks like we have an insider now.

I worked at RIM and you pay nothing for the BlackBerry device or service plan.

Wow, that is cool Congrat at working there. I am pretty sure you would get a blackberry and most likely service for free.

I would think they would let you choose between a couple of the models. Maybe let you choose the 8700 or take a significant discount off of it. Let us know what you find out! (if you can )

I think it's code for 'WalMart' used strictly by the WalMart insiders. I'd watch my back now that you let that cat out of the bag...

It's KW so I'm going to take a stab and say Bell as the provider and Exchange as the email.

I have a couple of friends that work at RIM but I haven't talked to them in a while, mainly for the fact that I'm in Toronto and they're in KW.

Oh, and mine is free too.
