I hope this turns up to be untrue. Guess we will all find out soon enough.

I choose to renew contracts.

The other guys' customers always come to me to borrow my phone to call their peeps (because theirs doesn't work, and I am including those with Iphones).

While I completely agree with your post, I disagree as well. Verizon is THE HIGHEST priced carrier. Period. If you want an option, you pay for it. For instance, Visual Voice Mail is $2.99 per month; an option other carriers include at no charge.

With that in mind, why not continue at the same price point? Instead, they are sending a message that "We know your Berry isn't the data hungry pig on our network, but we want you to pay for it." I understand it's an added benefit and an additional feature. But Verizon isn't providing it. AND the increased traffic on their data network would be minimal at best.
I have 14 bb's at my office and all are running the BIS service from VZW. So far, we have installed BESX and converted 2 of these phones to the BESX server. So far so good. (Outside of the 5 days of trouble shooting to get the bb's to be able to send...lol).
I hope that VZW does not require us to go to the the BES service. If it changes, I will be calling VZW and posting here.
Thanks Vader...how's Luke?

Hopefully by the end of this week we will have some 100% accurate information. I have heard that there are some trainings going on over the next few days.
He is doing good. 7 weeks to go and Baby Drake will be here.

Now, the good news, we know what it takes, I will get with my other IT guy (since we both were working on it) and get a list of exactly what we did to fix it. I do know this, our trouble was only on sending emails, and that has to do with the "Send As" permissions.
