    BESX In Verizon's Jail?



    We are receiving UNCONFIRMED reports that Verizon Wireless will NOT allow BlackBerry users access to RIM's new BES Express software without upgrading their data plan. This would require an additional $15.00 per month per user. It also appears (again, UNCONFIRMED) Verizon is the ONLY carrier following this outline.

    One of the advantages of BESX is it will allow small business owners to use the features of a BES service, at a BIS price. Original reports from RIM stated these features would be available without an increase in cost from the carrier. Apparently Verizon wasn't listening. It appears this is yet another attempt by Big Red to gouge their customer's wallet.

    What are your thoughts? Are you already implementing BESX on your server? Is Verizon your company carrier? Let us know!

    I heard the same thing as well. Of course Verizon will try to get more money out of this.

    Verizon users that are surprised that they would be gouged further by their carrier is the real news item here. Always amazes me what the "other half" pay for service/addons.

    I thought it would be nice to be able to keep up with the work email on my Tour, but not to the tune of $15 per month. That's insane. Fortunately the IT department did not move on it anyway!

    One of several reason why I dislike Verizon. Yet they still have my business.

    It's called "contracts".
