Basically what you're saying is you don't wanna pay hella money for a data plan...you can get a blackberry from cingular with a 29.99 data plan but you don't get the BES connect, I'm pretty sure though that t-nobile has their bes connect plan for 29.99 if you have a voice plan, I use mine for stand alone features as the browser and calender...its not bad to be honest it's all in what you're looking for...feel free to contact me for anymore info
Actually, that's not accurate. I want the convenience and efficiency of having my corporate email inbox available at all times, but I do not want every bit of data that I store in my phone to be sync'ing with my company's outlook exchange server. They use a BES and from what I'm being told, if I get a blackberry, I have to be configured to the BES to get always on email.
I don't mind paying the data plan to get always on instant email for my corporate email, but what I also want is to be able to manage my personal contacts, calendar, to-do's and notes in a separate contact manager like program like Act! that I also have on the phone so that I can stay organized with customers and family and personal information, and I do not want this information to be exchanging with my company for a variety of reasons. I would prefer to keep that information to myself and back it up to my home computer separately. Is that possible?
