IF they can make a secure BES application for Android/iOS, it will probably be worth more than a blackberry, since the companies need phones that their employees want.

Microsoft Exchange/Activesync is just as secure as BES(encryption wise). the problem is that iOS/Android are rootable which allows you to remove/ignore policies set by the companies.

how often does it happen that a store employee will tell you to buy it, try it, and then return it?!

i was in best buy the other day to get virgin mobile just to try it out for a month and see how sprint service works in my house - to see if the family should move to sprint - because at&t is horrendous in my house.
anyways the employee tells me if u want u can buy the android triumph and then come back in - in 29 days and return it.

Of course he told you that. If you don't end up coming back, he gets a commission.

If you do return it it's no skin off his neck.

lol. never heard that one before! yes, they are pretty darn expensive and thinking about it no, they dont have may good employees. in my few times that i shopped there (and most times went back to return it bec i found it for more then half the price cheaper somewhere else) the workers barely know their own store!

On a side note, (although this was mentioned earlier in this thread), if I have one of those frum plans (Sprint) and I change my phone will that change my plan? I have a BB now and paid a one time flat rate for data service, no monthly fee. What happens now if I switch to somethng like the iphone?
