    Encryption

    Does anyone know if the Android Exchange sync will support SSL encryption?

    This isn't a new charge. If you have a BB and are on the BES plan of $44.99 the charge will be the same. If you are on BIS (Blackberry Internet sevrice) it is going to be $30. Nice to the the spin on that articele though :mad:. I use my BB with BIS and work. We have our own severs so no biggie. BES isn't a requirement for most! I pay the $30 fee not the $45. It is only if you need thier exchange service or server. Hope that clears it up

    yes, thank you I think it does. Our corporate Exchange server pushes itself so there is no reason to pay Verizon to do it for you. I bet there are plenty of customers who pay them for Exchange push even when they don't need it.

    I would have to agree with that. I found 4 people at work all carrying Storms all paying for BES. I had them all call and change the plan and helped them setup thier email so it still came through :).

    Does anyone know if the Droid will be getting BB Connect like you can on WinMo HTC Touch Pro?

    Currently I dont think the Droid can connect with a BES server - if you know otherwise please post with detailed response.

    You are correct it will not connect with the BES because BES stands for Blackberry Enterprise Server and this is not a BB device.

    Or you can use MES, and do the same thing just differently.

    Yeah when i saw it, i figured that's what you had to have done. My opinion is that if BB doesn't make support for BB connect, you won't be seeing another option.

    Yeah i agree. I like BB better but we have had a lot of people switching for this launch. There is also a huge groups of business that are getting the Droid for their company phones kinda cool.

    I'm confused, probably because I don't understand BIS and BES terminology.

    If I work for a company that provides support for Exchange Server support through its servers, would my data fee for a Droid be $30 or $45?

    Also, on a slightly different note, is the e-mail from my Exchange Server that is stored on the Droid stored in an encrypted format?

    Thanks!
