Default Is there a plan for me?

Please Login to Remove!

According to Verizon, they offer 3 different Blackberry plans.

1) Blackberry web client
2) Blackberry desktop redirector
and
3) Blackberry Enterprise Server

The users would like to be able to send/receive work email using wireless capabilities. Being able to update the calendar would be great too!

Here's the deal. Only 3 people would be using this "system."
They do NOT have Microsoft Exchange as their email is hosted by someone else and is setup using a POP/SMTP account. We really don't wish to setup a seperate server to run some software.

Is there a plan for me? Am I going down the wrong road?

It appears that I've found one.

Blackberry Internet Service.
it works with POP accounts and doesn't require a server to be setup.

BINGO! That is what I use. Keep in mind that there is up to a 15 minute delay receiving email, but that is how RIM and BIS work. RIM polls your email server(s) about every 15 minutes. If it finds mail, it will push it to you BB and then about 2 mins later poll the server(s) again. if it finds something it is sent along to the BB and the process begins again. If it finds nothing then it waits about 15 minutes and starts all over again.

Also via BIS, contacts and calendar info will not sync over the air. You will need to use Desktop Manager and a program such as Outlook to sync those.

Technically, these aren't "plans." These are all ways of getting e-mail and/or other data to and from your device. Verizon only offers two data plans: 10MB and unlimited.

All BB data plans include BIS.
