Iphone, ActiveSync  and data plans

I have an outsourced Exchange Server (www.mailstreet.com) that provides ActiveSync.  What I am trying to figure out is - which ATT Data Plan to go with.  They say $40 if you need corporate data and $30 if you don't need corporate data.

If mailstreet provides ActiveSync - which ATT plan do I need?  I understand that Exchange may be considered Corporate data - but if Mailstreet provides ActiveSync - what is the $40 plan "tunring on" that the $30 plan doesn't have?

thanks in advance

How much data charging does the plan allow?
I am not sure about the exact nature of the ATT plans, but where I am in order to sync all of my emails (not including internet surfing) I don't use more than 50MB a month. You really don't need that much data charged in order to get the mai working.
On the other hand if you want to download google maps and use the GPS from anywhere then you need to think about more data or an unlimited option.
Can you maybe post a link to the plans and I can take a look.

Turns out the "Enterprise Plan" is BS!  If one has an Exchange Server - the lower unlimited priced data plan works!!

That was what I was trying to explain?
Do I not deserve some points?
