BlackBerry: that's not how it works

Just so that you know, David Geller posted this on whatcounts.com (Blackberry - I wish I could love you):

"For example, we were sold on a business plan and told we could use the Blackberry service to read from our corporate email accounts and forward email to our devices - with a slight delay. I'm told it's about 15 minutes, but can be ratcheted down if they detected increased traffic levels. I was also told that if I deleted items on the Blackberry, they'd be deleted on my inbox. Makes sense. I was told the same was true the other way around. That makes even more sense and seems even more critical. After all, you don't want to come back from lunch, sit down at your workstation and delete 50 messages only to find that they're still sitting on your Blackberry later that day."

"Well, guess what? That's not the way it works unless you shell out $5K for their Enterprise version. Yikes. Suddenly the whole experience gets very complicated and very expensive. They already support connecting to your IMAP or POP mailbox. Can't they reconcile deletions bidirectionally? They can. They choose not to."

Of course you have to read the whole post to get the context, but in summary, you only get the benefits if you go for the Enterprise version.

I think more people should read about Windows Mobile and the MSFP.
