    I'm a Windows Mobile user (Treo 750 being my main device) and I got a Blackberry Curve to try out for a pretty good deal and I'm wondering if its worth it to switch. Right now, I sync my Treo with mail2web so my contacts, tasks, and appointments are always updated. I tend to switch devices a lot (I've had the Treo, Tilt, 8525, Blackjack, all within the last 6 months) so MS Exchange Activesync keeps everything in check quite nicely. I NEVER sync with my computer as I find it to be a cumbersome experience as I travel for work anyways 5 days a week and don't want all of my personal information on my work laptop.

    So, my question is, if I wanted to try out the full BB experience, what do I need to do? Do I need to get a special blackberry data plan? I have the PDA plan with AT&T right now with unlimited messaging. Also, is there anyway that I can avoid syncing to my desktop to get all of the information (PIM data) from my Treo? Anyway for a blackberry to "talk" to a MS Exchange Server? That's the biggest thing is that I don't want to mess with a different OTA provider to sync my PIM info to.

    How much data do you want to sync? The Blackberry Internet Service will sync mail over the air, but nor contacts, calendar, tasks, etc. A hosted exchange service would be necessary.

    Mail2Web has a BlackBerry sync option for $15 per month. I assume you would need BES plan tpo use it. I don't know T-Mobile's pricing/plan selection.

    BIS would get you email, but no ther PIM data OTA -- cheaper than BES.
