Default Trying to figure out if Blackberry will work for me

Please Login to Remove!

I am seriously considering purchasing a Blackberry. I'm on the road about 45 weeks out of the year. My company uses Microsoft Exchange and some of the top execs carry Blackberries (corporate is on the BES). However, we're going through a re-org right now and a 6 month hold has been placed on any new Blackberry orders or additional addresses added to the BES.

My question is, if I buy one, how could I still get my work e-mail? I use Micorsoft Outlook. I'd appreciate any help. If a Blackberry won't work, would something like a T-Mobile Dash be a decent substitute?

Thanks

If you can access your Outlook via the Web then you could opt to use BIS. The reconcilliation and speed cannot match BES but it will be functional.

BlackberryFAQ.com outlines all your mail delivery options. I'm sure that at least one should work in your case.
