It's back up again for me, too, this morning.I noticed this morning the slowness, until around 9 and then...I logged into the https://www.syncml.biz/sync/user/faces/jsp/work-perspective.jsf site and it was much faster and responsive and I could finally load and go.
The push to phone option is still grayed out I assume this option is not available yet or during the trial, but the speed of sync to and fro is much more acceptable right now. 9.22am eastern.
I think if they boost the performance enough to get through the trial I will subscribe if it is reasonable. Figure around what the BB service costs are and my company would pay it. (US$30-45.00 per month with Verizon or T-Mobile)
Anything beyond that and my company will laugh at me and I get a black pop-tart again with a crappy keyboard.
I'm not familiar with what's included with Blackberry service, but the fact that this service does not offer contact, calendar and task syncing, nor does it offer push, makes it less valuable than services that do offer those features. IMO, $30-$45 per month would be way too high for a service like this. I'm only paying $20 per month for unlimited data, and I'd sooner check my e-mail through Safari via Outlook Web Access than pay double that just to check my e-mail through the iPhone's e-mail application. As it stands right now, the service just doesn't offer enough to justify a high monthly price tag.
