Default Cingular & Redirector

Please Login to Remove!

Hello All,

Can you use the redirector with the $29.99 cingular unlimited add-on? I have an Exchange account (no BES) and want to use the redirector and the $29.99 plan.

Thanks!

Sure, you can use the redirector. But it sucks! Your better off access your IMAP or POP email via your BIS account.

I thought that the redirector was supposed to be instant push, versus the polling (15 minutes) provided by BIS?

Yes, polling POP mail has up to a 15 minutes delay. There is no delay with IMAP email. Redirector has to be install on a PC that is turned on all the time. If the PC is off, no email gets forwarded at all. Choose what ever works best for you.

I believe that to use the redirector, you must be on a BES-type plan and not the BIS only plans.

Instant push with IMAP? I don't think so.

I use the desktop redirector for my work e-mail; and as the previous posts have said, it does require the workstation to be running; other than that, the delay isn't too bad.

I have an Exchange hosting service for my personal e-mail (w/ the BES option) and it's pretty quick; the contacts/calendar sync is a nice touch as well.

My grad school's e-mail system is an IMAP and the push/polling isn't "instant"; there is a lag...but again, it's not too untolerable.

I think any of the methods are bearable...the exchange push and .blackberry.net e-mail is the fastest by far.

All this is w/ a BB 8700c on Cingular in Atlanta.

Nope. You can use the new, lower priced BIS-only plan with the redirector. I do it.

What? No, it definitely works with the BIS plans. Myself and my buddies with personal BlackBerries all switched to the $29.99 BIS plan as soon as it came out and we all use the redirector.

An interesting difference between T-Mobile (where you have to have the BES plan for redirector to work) and Cingular.
