No need to go for WIndows Mobile 6 !!

thanks, I'm taking matters of cost of intergration in to consideration.  Could you explain the cost involved to sinc said phones with exchange and the method involved.
 
I have intergrated blackberries before using a blackberry server, but thats pricey.  I would only want to sinc my phone, and do others much down the road (and only 1 or 2 more)

If you have Exchange OWA up and running...there are no additional servers or other equipment and costs involved. You simply subscribe to the Blackberry Internet Service (free of charge). Once you do that, you will then go to your Blackberry device and configure an email account. You will provide your server name (that which is used for OWA) and your login credentials to it. The Blackberry device will log into your account with the credentials you provided...and will download a copy of your mail to the Blackberry device. It's really that simple and has worked great for me. Go to blackberry.com and check up on it.

Hi,
Windows Mobile will be free of cost in terms of setup, as oyu can use Active Sync on Exchange Server.  Just that you got to talk to your ISP for data plans.
Blackberry is a good solution personally I love it. I would recommend that anyday and to anyone 100%...no doubt on that !. Just that you wanted cheapest option, hence WIndows Mobile !
