I'd stick with what you've got for now, and see if you run into frustrations. Aside from it likely requiring a more expensive BES data plan (not familiar with VZ plans...so perhaps not), you're already looking at another $15-$20/month just for the hosted BES.
If money is no object, go for it. I'm on a BES through my company, and LOVE it.
I get 95% of my emails within 30 seconds now, some of them take up to 15 minutes at most. On my Moto Q, it was checked every 15-20 minutes, so anything even remotely better is nice. I think I'll stick with BIS for now. Thanks for the info!
Maybe when I start hiring some people, I'll move to an exchange server and get BES.
