Also, does using a hosted BES instead of BIS affect other programs? ie: messenger programs etc.?
It uses data, so it would count against your data plan. How much depends on how many messages you receive and whether they have attachments or not.
Since you are talking about a hosted BES, I assume you are thinking something like Mailstreet, or similar service. If that is the case, then it shouldn't affect other programs. If you are talking of a BES in your company, then all bets are off as they company controls the IT Policies and what they allow the BB to do and not to do.
