Re: Exchange Surcharge Could Hinder Droid With Businesses

Well, you can actually use a windows mobile phone with exchange support on the $30 plan, so im pretty sure you can use the droid on $30 with exchange as well. for unknowing customers thought thats an extra $15 a month VZW steals from them.

Re: Exchange Surcharge Could Hinder Droid With Businesses

The article is misleading or flatout just wrong.

I found this out:

Quote:
However, Verizon's own explanation of the $45 wireless sync plan found here explains it as a software/service layer that either provides an exchange server for those who don't have one or provides a software syncing layer for those who don't know how to set it up on their own. I'll agree that it is a bit sketchy but you clearly do not need the $45

Re: Exchange Surcharge Could Hinder Droid With Businesses

i think the extra charge is for them to host your exchange account basically. so they would push your emails (from whatever email account) to your phone. And I'm assuming contacts and the such as well.

Gotta remember.. most businesses aren't going to be running Droids unless they use Gmail or some other thirdparty setup already. More small businesses - so the exchange server doesn't really factor in much. Plus theres always the option for checking that stuff via the web. So its not much to get worked up over.

It is a big deal and a lot to "get worked up over." I hate being nickel and dimed (same reason I don't have an Xbox 360). Also did you hear? It might be another $15 on top of all that if you want tethering on the Droid. Damn... Verizon knows how to kick a guy when he's down and frothing at the mouth for a big juicy steak. http://gizmodo.com/5396353/droid-doe...or-will-anyway

Re: Exchange Surcharge Could Hinder Droid With Businesses

Well seeing how these are the same plans we have been paying for years for our windows phones I think iPhone users are trying to find ways to hurt droid news. By the way AT&T charges $20 for their exchange mail... And $15 for tethering. People here get used to our hacked free tethering and forget that we are technically stealing it...

Re: Exchange Surcharge Could Hinder Droid With Businesses

This whole article and news has been blown way out of the water by iPhone fan boy sites. AT&T is a sinking ship and pushing on its loyal media outlets to print w/e they can against Verizon in a way that makes them look like the devil. Just look at this frivolous lawsuit AT&T has conjured up about the "There's a map for that" commercials.
