    So far, it works great on my 700w using the WM5 version. Get the PDA SMS 2000 Allowance and you are set for push email.

    SPCS people have been enjoying this as Sprint Business Connect.

    requires a desktop redirector running

    Yes. Just like WS does if you use it for corporate mail.

    redirector mode is only one of the various flavors of WS. They have personal mode (you leave your PC on - yes, a redirector), department mode (one PC that's on serves up to 20 or 25 users) - both those are free, and provide instant push of all mail, contacts, calendar, notes, tasks. They also have a server mode - $2K, with unlimited users. No one leaves their PC on. No per-user licenses. One time - fire up as many users as needed. Behind the firewall, direct server-to-Exchange/Notes connection. All secure, with AES and 3DES encryption.

    The server mode only cost $2K? How does that compare to the BB software cost? Maybe I could pitch this in to our IT group.

    The server mode of Wireless Sync (called 'Wireless Sync Enterprise Server) does indeed just cost 2K. And as I said, unlike the BES (Blackberry Enterprise Server) there are no per-user costs. BES ends up costing a ton over time, with a start up site license cost (anywhere from 2K to 4K one-time) and then per-user costs (called 'Client Access Licenses', or CALs). Those can vary based on how many are purchased at one time (they bundle them in 'CAL PAKs), but they can be as much as $99 per user. As low as $30 if purchased in a bundle.

    What you'll find, though, is that the cost isn't the barrier you'll face from IT - it's the hassle of supporting yet another server. They like the way the BES works - it's stable, solid, no problems. Putting something else behind the firewall is always a pain.

    Check with your corporate verizon rep, and ask them to get you info on Wireless Sync Enterprise Server. You can do a 45-day no charge demo.
