An organisation I know has a small fleet of Vodafone Blackberry devices and a BES.  Looking at mobility options it seemed a Blackberry 3G with Bluetooth would be a nice way to provide mobile data to the mobile workers. While e-mail is fine, they could also access other corporate services, do mail via Outlook etc.

I know it was somewhat hard with a Telecom Blackberry but does Vodafone (or the hardware itself) allow this?

Thanks

Thanks John.

I think the Blackberries are already on data plans though it's not clear to me if they are individual or there is a data pool. This a public sector organisation so I suspect there are good deals with Voda in play here

And the BB's are 3G and have BT? There seems to be a mixture of Storms and the 9000's here

Can the phones do BT or do you need a cable?

Thanks
