        Expensive?

        ActiveSync is built in to Exchange. Cost? Zero. At most $30 for an SSL certificate to secure it.
        Blackberry? Well you can get Professional edition for free for the first device, but more than one device will require CALs.
        If you are buying more than ten Blackberry devices then ask the mobile phone provider for BES free - I have never paid for it with more than 10 users.

        If you are not happy with those two then you are stuffed. Nothing else is available to "sync". You can have email sent to the devices or use IMAP, but that is like buying a Ferrari and never taking out of second gear or always driving it in town. You are simply showing off the toy without actually using it.

          Verizon is our mobile phone service provider, you mean I can ask Verizon for a free blackberry enterprise server software+cals to install at my exchange 2003 std server?
          thanks!

            I cannot comment on other providers - but if you are buying a large number then getting BES and CALs free should be something that can be arranged. It is in the providers interest to do something like that.

            You will need to ask your account manager at the service provider.

              We actually had BES "lite" for free even though the initial set-up was for five Pearl Handsets - this was via Vodafone.
