I returned 3 Blackberry 9800 phones to Best Buy tonight.
Blackberry - you and AT&T need to get together and collectively need to realize that people don't want to pay $45/mo for a data plan just to check their company e-mail account.
AT&T needs to get some realistic pricing in place for enterprise, or you need to support active synch so enterprise isn't required.
For me, I'm on the wait list for an iPhone4 and back on my 10 year old Razor in the mean time.

I'm so upset after an afternoon wasted on this phone that I forgot my point ...
I claim that if you do not support active sync, then you are not a consumer phone.
If you want to be a business only phone - fine - have at it. I'll give you a call when I have an extra $60 per month and I can't find anything else to spend it on.

if on Corporate full version of BES, then yes the dataplan is a bit more since it users RIM infrastructure and not the carriers to get email and sync.
There is an alternative though that can use the cheaper BIS dataplan.

This user already has a couple of threads on the same complaint...
His employer has BES. He doesn't want to pay the additional money to on their BES.
His employer should foot the bill for his BES account if mobile email is required for his employment.
Anyway, this is pretty much a duplicate of what has already been discussed.
