    The article is wrong. The extra 15 is to use VZW BIS servers. If you want to use a company exchange server the extra 15 is not (and has not been) required.

    Both of you are wrong. The 30 dollar plan is for personal accounts, 45 dollar plan relates to Business accounts. yes, there is a 45 dollar BlackBerry BES plan, but WinMo also has a 45 dollar plan and that relates to business plans.

    That being said, so long as you have a personal account you will get a 30 dollar plan unless you screw up and ask for the 45 dollar plan. Exchange will work just fine on the 30 dollar data plan. Also, that link is bad.

    I am very appreciative of the information contained in/on this forum. I would have lost 30 dollars a month for no reason. Lets keep posting information.

    I have done this with the 30.00 plan on my omnia and also picked up the driod today as well, everything works fine other then viewing attachments so far in an exchange e-mail account. I'm sure it's just a bug though.

    @ R1lover- I assume you have a personal account and not a business account?

    @350-Jason- Do you have a business or personal account?

    Just curious as to who's exchange is working as per the PC Mag article- personal or business accounts...

    Thanks-

    Matto
