This news item expired February 23, 2008. It may contain out-of-date information.
In addition to other PDA and smartphone solutions, IT Services now offers faculty and staff Exchange synchronization for BlackBerry devices. BlackBerry devices allow remote access to Exchange email, calendars, contacts, notes, and tasks.

Models and Plans
For more information about available models and service plans, please contact one of Iowa State University's contracted cellular providers.

Costs and Support
In addition to the cost of the device and the voice and data plans from the cellular provider, supported clients that pay a monthly desktop support fee, pay only an initial $60 license fee. Setup and ongoing support is included at no additional charge.

Users who do not pay a recurring monthly support fee and wish to be connected to the Blackberry Enterprise Server pay an initial $50 administrative charge in addition to the $60 license fee and have the option to setup the device themselves or request that IT Services staff setup the device at a rate of $52/hour.

More information about costs and support are available on the PDA and smartphone page.
