I have a fleet of Okta Touch's and Titans and also T3G cards. Both are on 1G data plans. That seemed crazy so I am migrating all users to using their phones as modems, either via BT or a cable. Seems silly to have two data plans for one user and the speed of the 3G on the phones is good enough for what they want.

Just got the 8830 in for a user (can't live without their Blackberry!). But Telecom tell me the phone, while technically capable of acting as a modem, is disabled or not supported in NZ so for that user he is going to have both the phone and a T3G card. Anybody know the reason for this?  Makes me wonder if I shouldn't just get a VF BB for him instead since the Blackberry Server doesn't care what network the phone is on.

Thanks

Larry

I think the CDMA BlackBerry always route everything through the BlackBerry servers, in fact going to Canada and back. This would make no sense for users down here...

Also, based on the data pricing at present, you wouldn't want to use the Blackberry as a modem, even if you could. A max of 15 (compressed) Meg for $40 per month? Better value on having both!

Didn't know BB were still being routed through Canada. And we still have to install BB Professional Server on our Exchange boxes?

Also if the data plans are priced like that, makes sense to keep the T3G cards
