    Anyone out there using t-mobile's "minutes and mail" program (which is really for blackberrys) with a Treo? $60/months for unlimited data, unlimited texting, plus 1000 voice mins.

    I believe, while there are some T-Mobile Blackberry plans that inadvertently work with a Treo, the plans that use the Blackberry Enterprise Server only work with a Blackberry.

    Ask at Howard Forums - lots of TMO-specific knowledge there.

    did some research. there's a program called "bbconnect" that makes treos work with blackberry enterprise systems. and it does allow a treo to use blackberry enterprise servers. you can then use t-mobile's blackberry plans.

    however it doesn't seem to work with unlocked treos.....

    It's not a matter of locked vs. unlocked - it's only supported by Cingular at present:

    There's a thread around here somewhere on BBConnect.

    Blackberry Enterprise Server (BES) is a hosted email service that can be made very secure. Under BES, a sysadmin somewhere handles your BB config and can lock it down pretty tightly (e.g. syncing to only one PC), using RIM mail servers or RIM servers in a corporate network.

    This is ver different from the Blackberry Internet Service (BIS), a more free-form environment aimed at individual users. Under BIS, you can e.g. log into T-Mobile and add email addresses to be synced to your BB, sync to more than one PC, etc. The BB mail server is housed in T-Mobile's network.

    If your goal in poking around the BB world is to get "push email," BES or a T-Mobile BB plan isn't the answer. A mail server and client that support IMAP IDLE (e.g. Chatter, among others), coupled with T-Mobile's $5.99 data plan, is what you're looking for.
