I have used PuTTY on Series60 and UIQ. Both were equally bad but usable in a fix. I suppose I'd like having a last resort SSH on my 7100, but I'll wait for BWC and 4.0 on T-Mobile because under no circumstances will I pay some guy in his mothers' basement for MDS/BES.
I thought I heard you say that you use Mutt to read or look over all your mail, while your important (scanned) messages get sent to your BB. I assumed you were using Mutt on the BB.

I will have to re-read but in case it wasn't clear, I do use mutt to read email but not from the BBerry. I use it from my workstation at work.

I have two devices, one for work (BES-bound and gagged ;)) and one that isn't. I read email when I'm at my desk using mutt and also get them on my BBerry.

Damn.... CRTC is a little more leninent in Canada allowing monopolies, duopolies, and oliogopolies (to the dismay of some Canadians). However, it has made what certain people believe to be a superior telephone and cellphone network in Canada. But with just barely enough competition to keep prices in check. Some know us as the land of cheap high speed, with some people getting basic highspeed for $19.95 per month in dollarettes (CDN) which is about $15 US dollars. Premium 5 megabit highspeed cable for only $44 dollarettes (CDN) which is about $35 US. Ok, I do like to joke about our dollars, although it's been up lately. Right now, there is only one GSM carrier, Rogers, which is merging with Fido, and all the spectrum totals up quite a lot, the equivalent of three USA carriers worth of spectrum all controlled by one carrier in terms of airwave capacity. Scary thought for some us Canadians, but South Ontario is now like one giant Wifi hotspot.

I just hope it stands up in the next disaster (if one happens).

Many people, including Guess, do hate Rogers and their business tactics. Both Rogers and Bell Canada(Telus) are more or less head to head with their respective advantages and disadvantages.

Canada is gradually shrinking to the Big Three (or Big Two, depending on your viewpoint)
One CDMA network in Canada (Bell/Telus, freely roams on each other)
One GSM network in Canada (Rogers/Fido merging, I think partially roaming on each other now), three carrier's worth of spectrum.
One iDEN network in Canada (Telus, roams onto Nextel)
