    I am switching provider (in Belgium); and I am reconsidering my smartphone choice: continue with the iPhone 3G or switching to BB (bold), with a BIS license.

    Some questions :

    1) how do you handle tasks with BB ?

    2) do you synch with both Mac apps and Entourage ?

    3) I do run VMWare so I can update OS via windows; but will I be able to synch (preferably OTA) contacts, calendar and tasks from & to Mac?

    Thanks for your advice !

    I used to be an iPhone user, but now I am a proud owner of a 8110!

    1) You can use the Task app of the BlackBerry or other 3rd party apps

    2) When you sync with Entourage you do sync with mac apps in the same time!

    3) I didn't really understand the question!

    Does the BB task app synch with Entourage tasks? or with iCal tasks?

    third question was: I see that a lot of Mac users have Windows on their Mac to update the OS via DM on Windows;
    but in that case, do they also synch calendar en tasks via Windows (Outlook)? or do they synch tasks & calendar via Mac iCal?

    Entourage is actually an iCal calendar! Open your iCal app and you will find it there!

    but in that case, do they also synch calendar en tasks via Windows (Outlook)? or do they synch tasks & calendar via Mac iCal?
    The OS update will happen once a while, so you don't really need VMware just for that! If you have access to a pc, that would be fine! For syncing you can use Mac!

    OK, guys, thanks for the answers

    One last question (before I run to the shop :-)
    If I delete mail on my Iphone , that mail is deleted from the mail server and from my Mac (eg gmail and my IMAP accounts).
    The same will happen on the BB (BIS account) ?

    When you are deleting email on your BB you have the choice to delete it only from handheld or from both handheld and inbox.

    However, if you use IMAP and the Gmail app, it will be the same as your iPhone!
