    Mail2Web's subscription takes care of the actual "hook up" of your device to the BES and all of the OTA syncing.

    T-Mobile's (or any carrier's) BES plan is the "pipe" that's necessary to send/receive data from Mail2Web (or any BES host).

    You need both of these for BES connectivity. I have no idea if T-Mobile will automatically switch your plan and bill you accordingly, but most people fail the Enterprise Activation (the initial hook up) if they aren't on a BES plan with their carrier.

    FYI, I called T-Mobile today to find out whether BES access was included on EM+ plans as part of "blackberry unlimited." After some research, the rep told me it was an additional $10/month.


    Have you actually completed the Enterprise Activation on your device?

    I had my fingers crossed that the EM+ BlackBerry Unlimited plan included BES but too bad

    I was hoping to re-connect with a hosted BES but the $10 extra T-Mobile charge + $15-$20 hosted BES monthly was an additional $25-30/month I can't swing right now.

    I hope RIM comes out with a consumer-level BES option someday, or reduces the BES license costs. Hard to beat BES features with any of the current 3rd party options.
