Default automatic syncing?

Please Login to Remove!

i was just wondering if say a company has 50 blackberries, is there a way that they can sync over the air?
for instance sync contacts and appts from the calendar.
if thats possible, what would they need?

It's definitely possible.
The company would need a BES (BlackBerry Enterprise Server.)
This would allow for wireless sync of messages, calendar, contacts, tasks, memos, and various other things.

BES is available for Microsoft Exchange, Lotus Domino and Novell Groupwise environments.

About 6.

I'll ballpark and make the assumption you're using Microsoft Exchange.
For 50 users...
About $4,000 for the server license + 20 users.
$700 each for 10 additional users (x 3) = $2,100

Total for software about $6100 plus the cost of any additional server hardware if needed.
