Not sure what I need

I haven't purchased a Blackberry yet, but I was strongly considering it.


I have a work email account hosted by a provider.  They have an Exchange 2007 server and we are using Outlook 2007 as a client for our email accounts.  I rely heavily on the Outlook Calendar.  The provider does have a BES set up, but (and I'm not sure I understand this entirely) the user has to purchase some kind of license, apparently from Verizon


What do I need to purchased (plan-wise) to get the calendar continuosly sync'd on the Blackberry.  My schedule could change several times a day by an office staff member putting something on my calendar, so I don't want to have to set up my laptop and physically connect to the computer to sync after every appointment.  I've read that I cannot use OWA to check my mail and calendar through the BB Browser, so what are my options?

In addition to your calling plan (If you require one) you would need to have the $44.99/month Blackberry Unlimited data package, this will allow you to sync your Calendar, Tasks, Contacts wirelessly. The $29.99 Blackberry data package does not allow the wireless sync of your PIM data and that is the only difference with these 2 plans. You can still be set up on the BES with the $29.99 data plan though.


If you do not need a voice calling planm you can have a standalone Blackberry plan for $49.99/month. This is the same as the $44.99 data plan but does not include any voice minutes. I believe it is $0.25/min to use voice with this plan.


Hope this helps!!
