BES Express with Bis dataplan

Hi All, 

 

I know that it is possible to activate blackberry with BIS data plan on the BES X . What are the disadvantageous

 

The ones that comes to mind after searching the web are :

 

1. Loose connection to corporate network

2. possible issues with setting up meeting or appointments? am i correct ?

3. possible problems with installing applications.

 

 

on the other side, people seem to say that the BES X with BIS supports email/calendar sync and all other functionalities

it can also remotely lock the handset

 

 

please advise on the pros and cons of BIS data plan 

This is a big decision for the team and want to avoid any hassle just for cost saving

 

Please use plain text.
