i've grown up on BES and am looking to upgrade my wife's phone (a moto Q w/verizon using wirelesssync which provides full OTA sync -- e-mail, calendar, contacts, etc. -- w/outlook). i understand that without a BES, BIS only keeps the e-mail in sync (calendar, contacts, etc. has to be done via USB?). here's the rookie question: does BIS allow for full e-mail sync with outlook (i.e. reads, deletes, etc. on either the PC or the BB) -- or are there other limitations?
i hate to lose full OTA sync, but would be willing to give it up if outlook e-mail sync via BIS works just like the BES. e-mail is an @ameritech.net address (yahoo). phone would be an 8330. thx much for any insights you can share.

Acutally not quite.
BIS does not sync or reconcile "most" email. It does partially with Gmail, Yahoo and IMAP mail servers. It does not reconcile any mail on POP servers. And, none of that with Outlook (i,e., if you delete an email in Outlook, it will not be deleted on your BB, except in some IMAP configurations where when Outlook also deletes the message off the mail server it then reconciles that delete on the BB.
Honestly, if you want full mail reconcile, you should look into a hosted exchange server for her, such as
Does that help?
